Blowfish Rescue released!

After more than 2 years of work, Guillaume from Noctua Software finally made it again:

Blowfish Rescue is now released!

This is a 2d action/puzzle game in which you have to blow little fishes back in their bucket. It's really a lot of fun to play :)

I find this game really unique, and consider it a real masterpiece of programming. Guillaume managed to pack in these less than 3mb package:

  • a realistic fluid simulation solver
  • a kinematic engine
  • a procedural graphics (and animations) generation. See this blog post for detailed info and source code for this feature
  • plus all regular game assets like music, sounds texts, animations etc..

The game is available for free on google play and iTune.


  1. It would be useful if Stellarium could show constellation boundaries.

  2. Sir. I have been using Stellarium for a few years now and recently came across a company, SharperJacks, who is SELLING the same program for $20 USD. Since this wonderful program is OPEN SOURCED, I was wondering if there is some way you can stop him from selling a FREE program. Thank you.

  4. Hello, Fabien. I was looking at Stellarium and KStars for a way to display the new and visible sets of satellites launched by SpaceX. The most recent ones I've seen were added in 2020. Do you think that someone will add those new satellites to your databases soon?
