Space Hauler

Made from a scratch within 48 hours during LD42 compo. Space Hauler is a side-scrolling space cleaning simulator with pixel graphics, relaxing Zen atmosphere and Tetris-like space management. In near future space tourism and industrialization has grown steadily. As a side effect Earth's orbit is blocked by space debris. You are recruited to join the emerging industry of Space Hauling tasked to clean the orbit. Save the Earth and profit!

  • Realistic physics ( there is no friction in space)
  • Fly with a space truck or step outside in a space suit
  • Push space debris off from Earth’s orbit or down to atmosphere
  • Pull debris with your space suit’s tractor beam
  • Collect and sell valuable loot (rarity system)
  • Avoid space mines
  • Fix your space truck with your profits

CONTROLS keyboard

  • WASD = Move
  • Space = Enter / Exit truck
  • E = Open / Close truck’s cargo door
  • Mouse1 = Pull space debris / Use fix button / Interact with the Dock master
  • P = Pause

UPDATE 15/8/2018 v1.0.1

- Physics balances (tractor beam strength, player speed, truck mass, debris mass)
- Fixed some loot spawning issues
- Made some info on the tutorial clearer

I made a very similar game for GitHub GameOff 2020 and today I found yours. You've done it far better than me. :D


Pretty cool that we came up with such a similar concept! :D

Cool game

Happy to hear that you liked it!

perfect one of my fouvorites

Glad you like it! :)

Nice game! Write me if I can help you in anything connected to this game development.

Thanks for the support! 

I'm not sure if I have time to develop this game further at this point. Maybe in the future, but now I need to concentrate more on my Game Dev studies and the projects that it brings along.

alright, I didn't want to interrupt you. I just wanted to support this project(or your work)

Oke, good luck on your projects and studies!


Okay. Thanks man! :)
