About PixelNAUTS

LOST ORBIT was created by PixelNAUTS, a small team of AAA-Devs sick of working for the man. They set out to create a fast twitch, flow-focused, and challenging game for those who love to travel at near light speed. LOST ORBIT features simple, yet very responsive controls; allowing players to tackle the dangerous and incredibly fast challenges presented in each level. LOST ORBIT focuses on merging art, gameplay and music into a harmonious and intense experience, taking players on the ride of their (often too short) lives.

LOST ORBIT was inspired by the developer’s love of the mysteries of space, challenging gameplay, and dark humor. Between the beautiful planets and intense gameplay LOST ORBIT weaves a lonesome tale of an astronaut’s journey to find hope in the nothingness of space. This dark tale is juxtaposed with humorous and over the top deaths and set in a colorful and wondrous world of the unknown.
