Brief Play Description: 

"Farewell" is a one-player strategy game of space-faring exodus. The ultimate goal is to survive as long as possible.
General course of play begins with the player stationed at the Capital, or beginning, planet. Instructions appear on the screen, the game waiting for the playing to left-click once to begin. Once the player has clicked, the resources on the beginning planet begin to dwindle. All worlds will dwindle, so long as the player has a population higher than the max for that specific planet. If they run out of resources, the planet dies and becomes a "Barren World." The population can be regulated by loading people into pods and sending them off to other worlds, aiming for already Barren or Uninhabited worlds.
The game continues until either the 10 minutes are up, or no worlds are depleting resources.

Controls for the game are very simple. Left-click launches the pod away from whichever planet is currently selected, in the direction it is pointing when you click. The scroll wheel changes which planet is selected. Pause pauses the game.
