It's a game where you dig! Underground, there are minerals which you're supposed to send up to orbit.


  • WASD / arrow keys to move.
  • Move mouse to look around.
  • Left-click to dig.
  • Right-click to submit your minerals to the mineral storage hut.
  • Escape to open a menu for options and quitting the game.

State of the game

I'm not going to lie: the game is not very complete. It's a fun enough sandbox where you can dig around! But there isn't a real objective, or a reason to dig. Except seeing how the minerals get sent into space. Unless they drop back down.

I modeled and added the mineral storage hut (seen right at the start of the game) during the last half-hour, so it is a little buggy. The most noticeable issue is probably that it will disappear if you wander around the planet one too many times (literally: make one lap and it won't be there).

Works, it’s cute, but yeah, nothing but a pile of red cubes. My stairway down was too vertical, so I dug a less-vertical way back up, but it’s still very messy. Fine block digging/placement and an inventory (2 counters for grey & red) would be nice!
