THE WORLD

I am donstathemonsta. You are a drifter. Your mission is to save this dying world. Just kidding, there's no chance of that. 

The situation

The inevitable heat death of the universe is nigh. Over the trillions of years since its creation, the energy that allows heat and light and life has scattered to the edge. 

Take your ship and its operating system, "OS", and gather energy to keep yourself in the light. 

The cosmos' death throes, lightbeasts, are named after the star signs of old and are living manifestations of the energy previously contained in constellations of stars. Who knew? Even celestial bodies have a survival reflex.

Find the few remaining stars that exist in open space, and enter them. Once inside, you'll be surrounded by a star matrix, a framework of hard lights with unique physical forms. 

Navigate the coronal mass ejections and constructs to reach and absorb the star's mobile core. Every time you touch it, it'll move. Chase it relentlessly, because your ship cannot survive in that environment for too long before disaggregating and contributing its light to the star itself, which will be glad to have it.

Once you've absorbed the mobile core, you'll exit the matrix and your ship will attract the light that belongs to that core. This influx of light will cause your ship to evolve further. 

Never be cold again. Never live in the dark. Grifters in pursuit of the light you've captured and devout cultists that consider the lightbeasts to be gods will pursue you, but do not be deterred.
