Sunburn charts a deadly path through the cosmos

It’s unusual for a videogame to accept death as positively as Sunburn does. You’re the Captain of a space crew that lost their ship to an asteroid collision, and are therefore without a way to return home. And so this crew conclude that dying together at their own command, rather than alone and at the behest of their oxygen supply, is the better of two options. So you jump and jetpack between planets to tether the crew together before making the final jump into a fiery star. There’s a satisfying thud, drawn out by a slight pause, every time a body collides with the sun’s surface, like repeatedly slamming a car door, giving it a feeling you want to repeat.
