PlanetDrop - A Tiny Space Adventure

is a computer game where you command a spaceship in an orbit of a planet. Your primary task is to capture "drop zones" with your shuttles and commandos. You rely on stealth, agility and speed, rather than on firepower. Inspired by "The Expanse" series, the set is (trying) staying "close-to-real-world" physics and limitations, where space is vast, empty and dangerous, the humans are vulnerable, sustained entirely by their craft. The technological level, with small exceptions, is close to our near-future one.


This is an independent, non-commercial, non-profit project, driven by the pure passion for games, the curiosity how they are made and function, the admiration of the ingenuity it takes to create one, the huge challenge and a long-lasting dream. The game is created in the span of 10 months - from January 2021 to October 2021, by a single man with no experience in the field whatsoever.
