A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
2D Space-based game. Save the Emoji People! Their planet is doomed, so it's your job to build apartments for them on distant planets. You'll need to mine ores and other resources, produce metals and plastic. Grow food and other plants, refine plant oil into rocket fuel to fuel your nice shiny new rocket (made from iron,copper and lead you've mined). Each Emoji will need food, water and an apartment to survive. You can build everything on one planet, or spread out onto countless other planets you claim. Later, you can sell your surplus items to friendly aliens and get some GUCs (Generic Units of Currency) and buy items that you need from them too. Beware the 'generic space pirates' when they notice you, they'll gladly help themselves to your stuff, so protect your planets with a ground-based Laser-shark weapon (yes, that's right. Sharks with frickin' lasers!).
30 minute gameplay video (actual gameplay starts at 3m 30s into the video):
Flying your rocket can be tricky, gravity from nearby planets can pull you off-course, but it's worth the risk as you can claim more planets for the emoji people and mine asteroids for more resources. Attach a warp drive (powered by madeupnameium) to quickly zip about long distances. Keep an eye on your rocket fuel, if you run out, you could end up stranded on a distant planet!
