Get up-close and personal with Gravity

Chunky Orbits is a VR simulation of free-floating objects in space based on real life physics. Each object in the scene attracts each of the others in a cosmic tug-of-war that we call Gravity. Tap out a few boulders and contemplate the wonders of the Universe. (^_^)

Chunky Orbits is now available on Steam and Itch.io 

"For anyone interested in the mechanics of space or gravity, this is a fascinating and fun experience. Watching white dwarfs suck moons and asteroids towards them is brilliant fun and never gets old." - The Rift Arcade

"What a delightful little toy. I spent a good 20 minutes sitting on the floor of my bed room watching an accretion disk coalesce into planets.

Playing with little balls of gravel held together by their own weak gravity made it feel like I was messing with little icy moonlets that you might find orbiting the gas giants of our solar system.

For some people this will be about five minutes of fun and they'll move on but if you're a space nerd like myself you'll get more than your money's worth." - Stargrave, Steam review

This is not a game - more like a physics-based toy. Might even be educational. It certainly gave me a new appreciation for how Gravity works. 

The simulation consists of a large empty area in deep space. You pilot a simple ship and are free to place new objects wherever you like. You can create several types of objects - boulders, white dwarfs, center stones, and absorbers. You might also want to add some trails to your boulders to track their paths. You also have a sparkly photon cannon that's used to remove objects, or to stir the pot with some kinetic explosions. :) 

It's a big physics based playground. Create a random grouping of boulders and watch as they collect into larger, chunky groups. Launch a super-massive White Dwarf and observe how it affects the other bodies in the system. Create a small 'solar system' and see how many chunks you can get into orbit. 

 

You can also tinker with Gravity on your monitor (Windows, OSX, Linux) or Android device.
