Pasadena, December 20, 2012 – The moon is lost
in space! Only 4.5 billion years old, Luna is going to need lots of
help to make it safely back to Mother Earth in Liquid
Entertainment’s new iOS and Android game, Paper Galaxy.
According to witnesses, the curious little moon left orbit to
chase a passing cosmic butterfly. Apparently, it’s not the

What started as a labor of love by employees in their off-time
has become Liquid Entertainment’s first mobile-only
independent release. An indie game with heart, Paper Galaxy is a
family-friendly title that offers a charming and challenging
experience for players of all ages and skill levels.
Players control Luna, the lost moon, as she hops from planet to
planet on her way back home. Each planet helps in its own unique
way. Ride a Comet! Get blown away by a Gas Giant! Accelerate to
hyper speed on a Ring Planet! But not everyone in the galaxy is so
helpful… ornery suns, mysterious black holes and, of course,
the cranky Crab Nebula are all out to make sure Luna never makes it
back to Mother Earth.
During each jaunt through space, Luna collects stars, which can
be exchanged for over a hundred different upgrades. Players who
want stars faster can also purchase packs of stars. With each new
upgrade, intergalactic travel becomes faster and more exciting.
More than a hundred unique goals present an ever-changing series of
bite-sized objectives to conquer. And for those who safely see Luna
home, a whole new game mode is unlocked! Frolic mode presents
endless opportunities to explore the galaxy and push the boundaries
of the leader boards.
