Very interesting game. It can be relaxing or intense depending on how you play it. Most of you are probably familiar with this one already, but here's some stuff about it anyway:
In most games you see stars in the background, you shoot asteroids or you live on planets. But in Solar 2 you ARE these objects! Enter a universe where you must prove yourself to the resident god-like figure by doing its many bizarre and varied tasks. Or just ignore it and see how big you can grow!

Solar 2 is an open-world, sandbox game set in an infinite abstract universe. Play constructively: grow your system, nurture life on your planets and attack enemy life in huge space battles. Play destructively: crash into other objects and cause chaos, use your orbiting objects like wrecking balls, steal planets from other systems.

Features:
  • Dynamic abstract sandbox universe. Changes and evolves as you do.
  • Non-linear missions and open-world gameplay.
  • No boundaries. Drift forever in ambient space bliss.
  • Full of weird eccentric humor and stuff.
  • Extensive custom sound track.

My son and I both had a lot of fun with this one. This is one of the first games he ever "beat".

Good game.

I remember that Solar 2 was one of the first games I actually bought directly from Steam. It's very unique and very enjoyable and it has a decent amount of humour to it. It's certainly a great game.

We ended up getting Solar 2 and Little Inferno in the same week. That was a great week for gaming in the oogla household.
