Lunar Soil is a 3rd person moon-based management game about you, your crew and your corporate sponsorship.


Setting up your new company


Before beginning managing your moonbase you need to set up a company and pick a sponsor! Choose between a handful of mysterious conglomerates that have been monopolized the supply of space fuel for decades. Each come with its own unique opportunities, requests, threats and ideas.

Working on board your new moonbase


A steady income will help you pay your employees salaries, food and trading goods or let you get advanced machinery. You choose how you want to run your base, as well as staying alive. Here are some basic ways to keep your company busy:

  • Mining
    Mining ores and rare moon minerals is a robust way to earn your keep or to craft more advanced machinery and equipment.
  • Farming
    Botanists can grow and harvest plants, crops, fibers and flowers in well tempered greenhouses for food, medicine, recreation or even profit.
  • Researching
    Setup a lab, identify unknown artifacts, do science for the greater good of your colony and discover new technologies.
  • Crafting
    Create advanced machinery and parts for industrialized farming, clothes, tools, assets to your moonbase or for trading.
  • Trading
    Manipulate the deep space trading to maximize profit. Sell your trade goods and make a profit.
  • Training
    Increase the potential and value of your crew members. Make them into experts.
  • Exploring
    Explore the moon! claim areas of interest, find new resources and opportunities.
  • Economics
    Keep your sponsor and your crew happy and contempt, doing their bids can yield you higher rewards.

Expand and decorate your base


Decorate your base with crafted items or traded goods to feel at home. Expand your base as your company grows.

The crew of Lunar Soil


Managing, maintaining and recruiting a diverse and effective crew is an important step to a successful moonbase operation. Meet some of the pre-selected example "experts" available for hire:

* The sponsor removes itself from any responsibilities regarding the crew, their abilities and consequences of the unlikely event that the consultants may or may not be actual experts at anything, or capable of doing anything or any damage related to the daily work on your moonbase. The experts below might just be fictional characters.

Crew cooperation


You manage your crew by switching between playing as yourself and as your employees. Crew cooperation is the key to reach your goals. Your crew is the fuel for your organization. Keep them happy and sound to create a good work environment. If you ignore their wishes and needs they may get depressed or mad. Remember that you are on a very isolated place where you only have each other...

Put on your spacesuit and explore the unkown


Enjoy the rocky landscape, hang out with your coworkers, burn a body, throw someone into a meat grinder or lock them into an airlock. Explore the moon with your spacesuit and make new discoveries.

* Visiting the outside of your moonbase without your spacesuit will turn you into a corpse within seconds.
