A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The year is 2273

The unexpected discovery of valuable minerals within the rings of Saturn has sparked a thriving space excavation industry. You control an asteroid excavation ship hoping to make it rich out on the rings, but soon you find out that all is not as it appears. Experience a hard sci-fi story backed up with real physics and science.

Key Features

  • Realistic top-down hard sci-fi space flight experience. Every aspect of gameplay is backed up by real science. Ships fly just as starships should. 
  • Jump into action in seconds with autopilot assist or save fuel by manual thruster maneuvers. 
  • Detailed ship simulation down to every subsystem - upgrade your ship, fix or even jury-rig broken systems on the fly. Every system failure will impact gameplay - adapt to survive in the hostile environment of space.
  • Discover the mystery of the Rings, or just try to get rich leading your excavation company. 
  • Plan your strategy back on Enceladus Prime station. Sell your output, upgrade your ship, hire the crew and manage your company.

Please note: this a pre-release demo. While I'm doing my best to keep the game playable and polished at all times, you can encounter some bugs I did not catch yet.

Nice game, very captivating. The silence and mystery of space feels spot-on :-) Looking forward to the full release!

I noticed there was a bug on my end when I flew back to the station, and I clicked the button to go back to the main menu. The menus sort of stacked on-top of each other, and it just looked weird. I'm on Manjaro Linux.


Thanks for reporting it, I'll check that out. It might be that the new threaded loader is glitching out in some edge cases.


I have hard time replicating it on my end. Could you record a video, or send me a screenshot? TIA!


I managed to replicate & fix this in 0.61.3.

Ok good! I never got that video posted as I had planned... But I'm glad you figured it out :-D

Looks nice! Thanks for the updates! 

Main menu is a bit messed up on my Macbook (2017 MBP, still on 10.13)


Thanks for reporting that, I'll find a way to get it fixed ASAP.

This should be fixed in 0.21.4. Please let me know if that patch worked for you.

I never expected that Mac will resize the window briefly to 1x1px.

The patch works, nice work!

Would warn that this is a 64 bit version.

Good point, will do.
