Description from the packaging.

In Earthrise, a sci-fi animated graphics adventure, your job is to explore an asteroid and 100-room mining station, and figure out how to fix the engines before it crashes into Earth. Game control is easy with simple text and keyboard commands, pop-up windows, and Help menu.

There are multiple paths to your solution, all loaded with challenges, plus several surprising ways to meet your demise. Rely on your trained investigative mind, ingenuity, and lots of luck to solve this crisis before Earthrise.

Attention: Guild Investigator

All contact with out mining colony on Solus has been lost. The mechanically propelled asteroid is now traveling out of control, and Solus is predicted to collide with Earth- unless the main engines are restarted in time. Report to mining Guild HQ immediately for your assignment.

That was all the message from the main office had to say. Why do you always get the tough assignments? After all, your solution to the Ursula IX incident was really just a matter of luck: But now as the Mining Guild's top investigator, it's up to you to save the company billions of dollars- and possibly billions of lives!

Well, all in a day's work...

  • Explore the beautiful landscape. Wait a minute- this doesn't look like an asteroid!
  • Boldly go where no one else wants to- a deserted asteroid mining station on a collision course with Earth.
  • Meet new friends. On second thought, he doesn't look so friendly after all.
  • Use your skills as a trained investigator (like breaking and entering) to locate and repair damaged systems.
