Fun little game - amazing it's under 13k!

Got blocked by the space fishing quest.  Not sure what to do or where to go, and I've spent time just flying around and visiting planets, but haven't found anything that points me towards what I need to do.

Also, recommend that the fetch quest point back to the quest giver once you have collected the 10 pieces to give them.

Thank you! hehe yeah, I guess I just have to introduce a frustrating aspect in every game I create, even on this one ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

In theory, all the info you need to complete that quest is on that planet, but you have to visit all the cities there and pay a bit of attention. (but a lot of people have complained about it)

Well, I went back and played it again this morning before work, and I found the fishing area easily. Don't know how I missed it; I'd visited that location mentioned in the clue on the planet several times and looked all around that area, but this time, the fishing spot was right there next to it. I don't remember it being there last time, but there it was.

Anyway, still amazing it's in 13k.  Well done!

It's a clever and charming little game! Sadly I had issues with it freezing up periodically over time. Also, the fishing quest I had kind of a hard time figuring out what I had to do.

Thank you! do you recall under which situations it did freeze? I'm guessing this is from the itch.io version, where I had already removed some overly underoptimized routines, but I guess some still snuck in ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜….
