The invitation was received.
In 1977, NASA launched the Voyager I deep space probe to explore the unknown reaches of our galaxy. Among the scientific instruments, the probe carried an audio-visual message on a solid gold disk, the GOLDEN RECORD.

Pretty simplistic but fun space shooter game. I'm amazed at the number of little details you put considering this is your first game! Those high scores are something tho you must have some super fans haha :D

Thank you very much for the comment. Yea...especially one guy played it for hours to reach an unreachable highscore 😁
