Welcome to Limit Theory, a vast, procedurally-generated universe ready to be explored, exploited, and conquered.

[ OPEN ]

Go anywhere, do anything. No story, no limits, and no rules. Experience the synergy of total freedom and boundless opportunity.

[ DEEP ]

Reach beyond the usual drone of trading and mining. Build stations. Amass fleets. Explore planets. Make friends. Plan raids, ambushes, and even full-system assaults.


No hand-crafted assets. The universe is built procedurally - from the asteroids to the planets right down to the ships - so each game is completely different. Each universe is also infinite in expanse: you'll never finish exploring, learning, or conquering.


You aren't the center of the Limit Theory universe. AI players live their lives as well, and throughout your journey in the universe you will see factions fall, planets overrun, wars waged, treaties signed, and so on. Inevitably, you will cross paths many times with NPCs trying to forge a life in the universe - for better or for worse.

You won't find fixed prices here. The Limit Theory economy is dynamically driven by supply and demand. Moreover, events that occur in the universe - raids, blockades, factional takeovers, and others - may change the entire dynamic of a region's economy. Your actions are no exception. As you become more influential, you may find your operations to have a significant impact on the surrounding systems.


Each universe generated by the Limit Theory Engine has an infinite number of star systems to explore. As far as your journeys take you, you will never encounter the edge of space. You can never exhaust the possibilities, no matter how long you play.

Stay on your feet, or settle down and create an empire of your own. Build factories, vast fleets, and powerful space stations. Stake out your own territory in the stars and defend it as your civilization grows. Colonize planets, research new technologies, and live by your own rules.

All of the content that populates each universe is generated by the computer, using a technique known as procedural content generation. This means that next time you start a game, not only will the universe be different - but all things therein as well, including factions, goods, weapons, ships, mission opportunities, stations, planets, AI pilots, and more. Each universe is an endless, unique experience.


Actively search for ore in asteroid fields, then physically extract it using mining drones and specialized mining beams. While scanning may be necessary to ascertain the exact contents of an asteroid, ore-rich asteroids can be spotted visually from afar.

Encounter epic battles between massive fleets with hundreds of ships. Take sides and join the fight, or earn enough wealth to purchase and command your own fleet to crush your adversaries.

Not only can you purchase more than one ship, but you can also expand your operations to include any number of custom space stations, as well as buildings on planet surfaces. The game isn't over just because you've acquired the best ship and weapons...far from it. You've only just begun.

Your universe is what you make it.
