Explore and mine minerals! Visit alien planets and mine for the resources you need to upgrade yourself and your ship. Features procedurally generated levels and an object-based crafting system for upgrades. Find 18 artifacts to unlock all story pieces and finish the game, or keep playing to get all the upgrades.

Inspired by MotherLoad, this is an RPG-like spin-off. You won't be disappointed!

- fix: now you can also get small lava globule from lava pockets
- bugFix: you no longer die when a gas geyser explodes using dynamite
- in the Research tab you can see all items now, even objects you don't own yet (should make a lot more sense now)


Added Medals!


This game is well up to par with legendary mining games like Motherload. Though a bit sluggish for me, everything worked and the quality button is always helpful.

The "Game Completion" medal takes a bit of time to register, it only registered for me at the same time I completed all upgrades. (and objectives) No big deal there.

Really good stuff.

This game looks like fun, but I can't get past the tutorial level. The reason is that the game does not seem to register more than 2 button inputs at once, in certain places. While trying to ascend the long vertical corridor near the end of the tutorial, there is a section where the player must double-jump, press left, and press space in order to drill into iron nuggets in the side of the wall. I tried to do this for 10 minutes in all different qualities and with different techniques, but I could never drill in the wall, so I'd just fall down the corridor.

I tried multi-button inputs in other areas of the level, in different combinations with the same result. For example, press and hold the space bar to activate the drill, press up to jump, and then press left to drill left- the result is that the drill activates and I jump, but the game does not register the input to move left.

Frustrating! It must be a problem with my computer, since no one else seems to have had this problem, but almost 15 minutes of monkeying with this problem is too much for me.

5 stars for the Farscape reference!

I'm just wondering, i finished all upgrades, and got a load of resources. Does it end? or is it just me that is stuck? this is my 3rd play through and every time i just finish all upgrades. Can someone just tell me if there is an end?

this is the greatest mining game ever. I really think an aquatic portion would be a great idea
