Star Stuff is a cosmic coding puzzler that takes place in a factory that fabricates stars and shoots them into space. You are Mija (me-ha), a bright-eyed engineer on their first day on the job. You move Mija around freely as they help the the alien solve a mix of coding and fun puzzles.
As you progress you discover a series of mishaps that need your attention. In this way you slowly bring calm and order to the chaos. The coding combines Scratch-style blocks with the game-world objects to make the connection between the logic and the solution. Between puzzles you can take a break in the cozy star factory lobbies and interact with familiar but curious objects.
The result is a game where you solve a big problem one step at a time. With over 70 hand-crafted puzzles there is a challenge that scales with your ability.

There is some light hearted peril in the story, but nothing that would worry any player.
7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The puzzles often lead to the player thinking out loud about how to solve them. This makes it a great game for young children to play with a parent. They need problem solving and logic skills (but not coding knowledge) as well as movement.
