May 18th, 2021 -- Windybeard Games is proud to announce its interstellar roguelite action game Galactic Mining Corp launches today on Steam -- head out into uncharted space and discover a universe of locations to exploit for riches!

Galactic Mining Corp is a game about building and expanding an intergalactic mining corporation through crafting and base building mechanics. Use your ever-growing profits to expand your HQ, hire a crazy workforce, obtain new drill components and upgrade everything. Hire more than 70 crew members with unique stats from around the galaxy to pilot your drills and power up your base.

In Galactic Mining Corp everything is of value, from every bit of mud you drill to the strange space banana you hire to work in the HQ store rooms.

Features
  • Almost endless levelling of everything! From improving your facilities and promoting crew members to upgrading mud to increase its drillable value.
  • Drill planet cores to collect core fragments to spend at the "Coretrium" perk tree to boost your stats and unlock huge rewards.
  • Collect and record everything! Every tile you drill, every item you collect and every planet you visit adds to your value and power.
  • Explore and unlock galaxy maps finding comets, moons, planets, and other spatial oddities; each with their own stats and loot.
  • Expand your ever-growing headquarters by building and upgrading facilities and filling the rooms with awesome crew members.
  • Hand-drawn art throughout creating a colourful, unique and enjoyable universe complemented by an original soundtrack.
Galactic Mining Corp is available now on Windows PC for $12.99. With a 10% launch week discount. A percentage of all sales of Galactic Mining Corp will go to the gaming charity "Gamers for Good" -- a non profit game studio on a mission to use game-related content to build awareness of charitable opportunities for gamers
