Helium Rain is released !

After a year in Early Access, Helium Rain is now publicly available as a full-fledged Steam game !

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oAKZwCSxSY
This release is meant to be a smooth transition. No change in pricing is occurring, all game saves since we released into Early Access are still compatible. Take a look at the forums if you have questions or issues.
  • General discussions
  • Bug report forum
  • Linux support thread
If you're a returning player, you should find that the game has changed quite a bit since the first days of Early Access !



Bug patrol
The game itself has been unchanged since 1.1.4, but we'll still be on the lookout for bugs. Please report all issues you find in the game on on our public bug tracker, or on the Steam forums, so that we can investigate quickly and remove the problems.



Four years ago...
We hope Helium Rain can be a great experience for you. We have been working for more than four years, trying to build a game that would be the perfect blend of strategy and action, with a pinch of realistic elements.

Here's what the game was looking like, exactly four years ago. I think we've come a long way here ! Building a game is a huge, though rewarding, project. I hope we succeeded in making the game we wanted to make - one that has fun action and deep strategy gameplay.



Thank you for reading, thank you for being a part of this adventure, and have fun !

Helium Rain 1.1.2 released

We've released a new update to Helium Rain. It is mainly a bug-fixing update, with a twist...

An oversized surprise
As a surprise addition before launch, we're adding a 13th ship to Helium Rain. The Themis freighter is not a new combat unit, but a smaller version of the old Atlas superfreighter that will provide half of its capabilities for 60% of the cost. We thought this unit would fill the void between the Atlas and the much smaller Sphinx.




A laundry list of bugs
Having the game working perfectly is always our prime concern. Here are all the bugs fixed in 1.1.2, which is a longer list than usual - we've been testing the game pretty intensively since the 1.0 update, and many new players reported issues that existed in earlier versions.
  • Fix complex cargo bays locking up
  • Fix miscellaneous trading issues
  • Fix notifications of scrapping by AI companies
  • Fix auto-trading fleets not handling fleet supplies
  • Fix auto-trading fleets not selling
  • Fix auto-trading still enabled after assigning a fleet to a trade route
  • Fix blocked quest step on the Pendulum contract
  • Fix station construction limits in sector blocking substation construction
  • Fix contract generation while a fleet is stranded at the end of the travel
  • Fix trade route sliders acting up
  • Fix typos, contracts wording, bad tooltips, etc
It's happening !
We'll be releasing Helium Rain out of Early Access on October 11. Tell your friends ! This is a big day for us.

No changes are planned until that date, unless we find dramatic issues in the next hours. We'll keep working on issues reported by the community. As usual, please always report crashes our bugs !

About This Game

Build your fleet, trade, explore and conquer


Helium Rain is a single-player space simulation that places you at the helm of a spacefaring company. Trade resources, buy ships and stations to fulfill contracts ! Dock at stations to buy and sell you wares or upgrade your ship, upgrade your technology to be more efficient and militarize your fleet to prevent piracy.

You will need to master both real-time action and long-term strategy: destroying a freighter has a direct impact on the economy, while declaring war will make your spaceflight environment slightly more hostile...



  • 13 playable ships with weapon and engine upgrades
    Build and fly fleets of fighters, bombers, cargos, corvettes or capital ships. Buy new engines and weapons.
  • Fast-paced combat with Newtonian flight, localized damage and joystick support
    There is no speed limit in Helium Rain. You can fly at half a mile a second while aiming backwards. Aim for critical systems in order to disable ships, kill their crew or capture targets, and don't fly into asteroids.
  • Complex economy model
    Take advantage of a complex simulation of space trade to be the most competitive company.
  • A planetary system to explore
    Explore around 25 sectors orbiting the gas giant Nema and its moons.
  • Procedural contracts, world exploration, technology upgrades
    Pick contracts and build your empire to become the largest company.
  • Quick-action skirmish mode
    Setup your fleet, pick an opponent and go into fighting action right away !

A world that feels real


Your ships have generators, radiators, weapons, engines, cargo bays or life support systems - they all work together. Every thruster on your ship plays a role. Aim for engines to pin down your enemies, or send them spinning around by destroying power stations. Most ships have more than thirty individual parts ! You can customize the most important parts of your ships - your main engines, attitude control thrusters, weapons and hull colors.

Your competitors are independent factions, companies with the same goal as yours - ruling the system. They will try to undercut you, or even attack you if you become a threat to them. But don't be too quick to destroy them, as war can break the supply of resources you depend on ! Attacking freighters will destroy resources, with the potential to cause an economic crisis.
