Turn Earth into a Spaceship to escape the unstable dying sun.

If you like my small projects I have a fully release game on Steam (with free demo):

Please prefer playing the downloadable version rather than the WebGl one. The horizontal compass is not working in WebGl, although you can still play without full 3D compass.


W/S or Z/S to use propulsion or brakes

A/D or Q/D to steer the planet

Left mouse click to Select and confirm actions, Right mouse click to rotate view around and mouse wheel to zoom-out zoom-in.

Project Earth is a resource management and navigation based game, build a smart economy to produce enough fuel to escape the unstable dying sun.

Tips to win: Make sure to go near each planets you come across to automatically scavenge extra fuel.

earth x sun BOOOOOOM

fun idea

I love the game sooooo much!!!!


Good game!

I do tend to have some problems with trying to place buildings, though.  Sometimes, I'll select a building and then click on the Earth, and for whatever reason, the game doesn't recognize that I clicked on an empty tile and the build action cancels.  This can be a bit nerve-wracking given the time limit.

As it doesn't seem to matter where on the Earth a building is placed, I suggest that when a player clicks a building type from the build menu, the building just gets placed on a random empty tile.


how to skip the intro


nice game and idea!


Very cool game and game idea. The web version actually worked fine for me.
