God has crafted you from blood and motor. Your sole purpose is to improve Their mining operation on some long-forgotten planet. You’ve got 30 minutes till your body crumbles.


CENTAURI HEAVY INDUSTRIES is a narrative-driven resource gathering factory simulation game with multiple endings set in the grim darkness of the far future.

Use the arrow keys along with Z and X (or a gamepad) to control your character, harvest resources, and build factories. Figuring out how to unlock all of the endings is part of the challenge. Good luck.


  • There are 3 different endings in the game.
  • Prefer the downloads below over the web player. The offline versions will look and sound better.
    • If you're using the web player, make sure to click the full-screen button (bottom-right corner)!
  • You can reclaim factories after they’re used up to get back some of the original cost.
  • Resources are grouped into patches.
  • Moving Factories are expensive but very useful.
  • Multi-Factories last longer.
  • Use Z to cycle through abilities and press X to activate it.
  • You can press X to skip through text.

Really great game!

Was just trying to get as much iron as possible and my iron number overflowed and turned negative :( Couldn't build anymore factories.

Cool game though. Gives me some ideas


Probably the best game every made
