Want to get rich FAST? 

Join Tecton Inc

a Space-R Corp. join (ad)venture!

What is better than finding ore underground? Well, finding it on the surface!

Tecton Inc. specializes in extracting minerals from unstable planets where tectonic plates shift continuously. Constant earthquakes push minerals outwards for you to grab and become rich! Put them in the dropship, you'll see your account balance rising as bubbles on champagne!*

Dangerous, you say? Not much more than having a walk on the beach!**

Not sure about unstable tectonic plates? Don't worry! There is plenty of jobs at Space-R Corp. Would you prefer becoming a mech miner at Titan instead?


*after paying travel, accomodation, tools and fuel expenses. 
 **actually much more dangerous than having a walk on the beach.

Great game!

Thank you! And thanks for playing!

Fun arcade game!

Thanks for playing!

Included this in my event highlights @26:15.

A little infuriating when the ground moves when you're halfway over a lava pit, but that's the nature of the game. :)

That's when you use the jetpack! You have a split second when your feet are burning before dying. If you are fast you can jump back to safety :D Thanks for playing and showing! (will watch the video tomorrow) ;)


Excellent short game!

Nice game mechanic and execution.

Tight! :D




Love this game (as you already know XD)


Haha, thanks!! Did you finally try that idea you told me about?


Not yet, long work day and no time today. Will check tomorrow, will be tweeting about it soon as I get started on the idea.
