Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi's strange, stretching, solar system spanning, exploration game Noby Noby Boy has finally been completed after six years. 

Why did it take so long to finish? Well, the game asks players to stretch the titular character, Boy, in order to amass points which are then used to help Girl stretch out across the stars, traveling from planet to planet. 

Unfortunately, interest in the PlayStation 3 game eventually petered out, leaving behind a small group of dedicated players who remained committed to getting Girl to Pluto, before bringing her safely back to Earth. 

Along the way some changes were made to the game's points multiplier to speed up Girl's journey, and after 2,489 days of deep space exploration, that group of players finally achieved their goal last night. 

You can watch the moment Girl touched back down on Earth in the video above.
