Erik Svedäng, winner of the 2009 Independent Games Festival's grand prize for Blueberry Garden, revealed a new project coming soon to iPhone/iPod Touch: Kometen (or Comet). His friend, Niklas Åkerblad, worked on the watercolor visuals and music, while Svedäng handled the programming and game design.

In the game, players explore outer space as a one-eyed comet, using planets as slingshots (similar to Orbital/Orbient and Faraway), collecting art along the way. Instead of using a scoring system or letting players lose, Kometen is "all about self improvement and judging your own performance."

Svedäng and Åkerblad are wrapping up development on the game and says its release to the App Store "shouldn't take too long.
