A downloadable game for Windows

The game is set in the far future where our star, having exhausted all of it's hydrogen reserves, begins to turn into a red giant and engulf the inner planets. Harvest moons for metal and fuel, evacuate as many planets as you can and try to help humanity escape their dying sun.

Originally made in 7 days for Ludum Dare, 7DRTS.

Objectives

The aim of the game is to evacuate the colonised inner planets to the safer outer planets, with the ultimate aim to build an interstellar colony ship. You can build Deuterium and Metal Mines on moons in order to gain the resources required to build ships and buildings on the planets.
