Nice short cosmic horror game. I liked the info on the stars and the colorful graphics. It's funny that you both get the urge to run/hide from the beast but also can't look away when it arrives. Enjoyable experience, thanks for creating :)

Jeu super original et sympathique !

love it thank you so much i really enjoyed it :):):):):):):):)

Some of the best N64 horror game aesthetics you can find!  Awesome short horror game.

Remina64 good exerience

I thought this was really cool! You did a great job recreating that awesome N64 aesthetic. Super atmospheric, and very creepy. Thanks for your work!

I talked about Stargazing 64 in my video this week, if anyone is interested:

I don't know if the Junji Ito reference is intentional, but whether it is or not this is still a fantastic little horror game.

What a game!

it was so atmospheric, honestly the stargazing portion of it could be totally expanded upon and become its own game entirely. The horror element definitely added a crazy twist to this otherwise very calm experience and the idea of a planet that in itself is an entity that was coming for you was absolutely terrifying! You definitely landed the N64 style and graphics for a fact and I loved this short yet memorable experience!

Very nice. looked at a astromegalophobia-post after that; def gave me a different point of view of sorts to better understand stuff like that. 


worth playing and had a sweet look as well as a good feel to it

Simple and effective scare. Got me

that last part made me jump, great game btw

I loved this. You captured the n64 style perfectly as far as I'm concerned. Would love to see something longer like this. Even if you took the same concept and just made it into a bigger game I'd be interested in playing it. Great job!

Going off by only with these comments. Looks like a treat of a quick game! No doubt I will enjoy it, by the sound of it. Being a fan of the genre. I'm looking forward to playing. And thanks for your work!

grr this scared me grrrr

I appreciate the style.

This had a very Majora's Mask feel to it, which was nice, very short but definitely fun. Also the last scare got me.

The game was really short but I liked it because I learned some new things about some stars. :)

I also did a full gameplay video about this game which you can watch here if you want to:

Cool game here's a speedrun

Stargazing 64 reminded me of the hit Nintendo 64 classic "Waveracer"

This game managed to make me feel extreme anxiety in less than 5 minutes. 100% worth playing through it though. :>

OMFG, I ALMOST DIED, I really had that horrible cosmic horror feeling, great game but I didn't know it was a cosmic horror game ('cause I didn't read the description) hahaha

Loved it! Your games are always kickass!

I didnt expect that ending lol

cool game!

Such a beautiful game.  Definitely feels a bit nostalgic too.

Majora and Gamecube type of nostalgia. Interesting Concept.

Really liked it, one of the shortets horrorgame i ever played but cosmic horror still creeps me out more than most other forms of horror. great game!

Yo, I played your game in my latest Itch.io Horror Games video! The part with your game starts around 19:35! Hope you enjoy the video if you decide to check it out! Cheers!

i would love to see an expanded version of this game! super creepy and nostalgic, amazing job.

I second this opinion

IT WATCHED ME AND CREEP ME OUT BAD! THANKS WARKUS!

Huge Junji Ito fan, so I was ultra-impressed by the game's concept! Great game to end my vid on, moreover, I am deleting it from my goddamn PC now that I have officially been scarred... Thanks.

p.s. I'm just being sarcastic. Stargazing64 really is a short lil gem and I couldn't recommend it more! Just make sure to read "Hellstar Remina" by; Junji Ito if you get the chance.

Even tho it's short, the vibe and environment is done very well. Helped me to relax a bit.. well.. a bit. :P definitely gonna check your other games

Very cool. I like the lighting at night.

There are severe performance spikes on Debian 10, and the game crashes after a certain time. The same thing happens running the Windows version through Wine.

I watched someone else's playthrough on here though, and it's pretty good.

This game is so cool... Short but sweet. Beautiful and well structured.

I wanna put this game's setting in my back yard
