“It won't be for everyone (...). But like its realistic lasers, it is expertly calibrated to hit those of us in its niche directly in the heart.”
[RPS Bestest Bests] – Rock Paper Shotgun

“The best game about space mining is finally finished”

About This Game

The Ultimate Asteroid Mining Simulator


You are a captain of an independent asteroid excavation ship, operating in the mineral-rich rings of Saturn - the thickest debris field in our solar system. Your task is to navigate rings, excavate minerals, and sell the ore at the Enceladus station.



You can hire and manage your crew who will aid you, update your ship - or switch to a completely new one. You can acquire a bounty hunter licence, explore mysteries or smuggle weapons - but at the core, you are a rock-hopper and rock-hopping is what you’ll spend most of your time at. And since it is the core of this game, we made sure you’ll have a great time flying your ship and excavating.

You are no chosen one, the story does not revolve around you - it is driven by the characters you hire and encounter, and each playthrough will play out differently. You can choose to investigate and embrace their lives, or just ignore them. It’s all up to you.

Giving Science its Due


Tired of having more Fiction than Science? Here you will find lasers are not visible without a medium, sound does not move through the void of the empty space and every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Thrusters eject gas that heats up and pushes away objects, your reactor is cooled by propellant flowing through it and radiators glow when you pump heat into them.



There are no energy shields, teleporters and Heisenberg compensators. No lightspeed, no blasters, and no artificial gravity. Instead, we have fission reactors, thermal rockets, ion thrusters and centrifugal gravity. You'll have hard decisions to make, with no "best" equipment to answer every need.

All technologies are real and there is no technobabble. But it’s still a game and one that is fun to play.
