In this game, the player commands the vessel The Horizon of Night; setting forth from the fantastic port of Myrmidal, they navigate the strange depths of the outer cosmos in search of bizarre and wonderful treasures. Navigation is achieved by issuing text commands to modify two axes of the ship's solar sails.

The commercial iOS release incorporates some visual interface elements to cut down on touchscreen typing, as well as Game Center achievements and VoiceOver and dictation support.
