What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I want to involve the community as much as possible in the development of Space Miner - Idle Adventures, and the best way to do that is to get the game in the hands of you, the players, and listen to your feedback. This game will continue to grow with the players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“A few months to a year? As a solo indie dev, this has been a huge undertaking, but the plan is to continue working on it, adding more features and content.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The plan is to have more upgrades, more research, more encounters, more zones and more big numbers!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Refer to the "About This Game" section for details as it explains current features. Our Discord also has additional information. There may be bugs and incomplete content.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price is not anticipated to change when the game leaves early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I am constantly on the game's Discord and Steam forums to gather player feedback and brainstorm solutions to any gameplay issues or feature and content additions and changes.”

About This Game

Space Miner - Idle Adventures

Space Miner - Idle Adventures is a fun, entertaining and addictive game that lets you explore the galaxy, mine asteroids, and encounter all kinds of crazy events. Whether you want to play casually or actively, this game will keep you hooked!

Features

  • Two ways to actively mine with your ship: Use drills or lasers to mine asteroids of different types and sizes. Drills are cheaper and always get the full mining amount, but you have to chase down the asteroids. Lasers are more expensive and have diminishing returns over distance, but you're not chasing the asteroids. Choose your strategy wisely!
  • Upgrade your ship: Sell the resources you gather for gold, and use the gold to buy upgrades that increase your mining speed and cargo capacity.
  • Perform Research using gathered resources to unlock technological advancements to improve your equipment and more. Over 170 research items so far!
  • Craft unique parts in the Click Factory for advanced research and other craftable feature unlocks like hidden storage and offline rewards.
  • Feel like idling? Buy AutoMiners to gather ore for you in the background. They'll collect ore even while the rest of the game is paused. Buy Merchants (auto-sellers) to sell selected inventory for you automatically! Cha-ching!
  • You can also buy Mining Outposts to mine specific resources.
  • Prefer a more entertaining method of idle mining? Buy Mining Drones that will fly around and mine the asteroids for you. Such a spectacular performance to behold!
  • There are also Player placeable Laser Mining Turrets, for all your Frickin Laser needs.
  • Increase your Reputation (prestige) to earn gold even faster!
  • Explore Space: Encounter various events and zones that may reward you, challenge you, or screw you over. Play Rock Paper Scissors with aliens, roll dice with pirates, shoot the breeze with fellow miners, and uncover the secrets of ancient artifacts and anomalies.
  • Battle bosses to unlock new zones. Once unlocked, you can warp to the new zones for rare loot and events. Scan wrecks, dodge solar flares, navigate mazes and more!
  • Earn achievements: There are over 60 in-game achievements to earn, ranging from easy to hard, and from silly to serious. Some of them may even affect the gameplay or reveal hidden secrets. Can you unlock them all?
  • Complete Quests to earn rewards and earn reputation across the galaxy.
  • Enjoy the humor: The game is full of jokes, puns, references, and Easter eggs that will make you laugh out loud. The game does not take itself too seriously, and neither should you. Just have fun and watch the numbers go UP!
  • Keep your progress on track and synchronized across devices with Cloud Saves and Cross-Platform support. Windows, Linux and yep, Steam Deck!
  • Playtime rewards. Watch for the gifts!
