About This Game

Buckle up, pilot! We're stationed above an alien planet surrounded with an abandoned mining system and filled with alien bugs. Your mission? Dive into the tamed sectors, use the mining system to collect upgrade parts and extract the Bioshards from alien minerals. Beware— the system is infested with alien bug cells spreading and waiting to hatch. Stay quick on your feet, and you might just make it out in one piece!


At the start of every expedition, the map is procedurally generated, and it's crawling with alien bugs. The cells constantly spread and evolve. When triggered, the bugs burst out from the cells to swarm you down!


Equip up to five skills each run: active ones that strike automatically or passive ones that boost your abilities. Upgrade each skill differently to maximize their potential. Discover unique synergies between skills and upgrades to optimize your build. The better your synergies, the easier you'll crush enemies!
