Welcome to Pioneer

You have found pioneer space sim? Great!
Pioneer is a space adventure game. And the best is: It is completely free!
Alpha releases are made occasionally to showcase recent development and to get feedback and ideas.
We'd love for you to take Pioneer for a spin, but you should be aware that this game is not finished,
has very few missions and other gameplay aspects and will crash and exhibit other weirdness.


If you want to play the game you can download it on the pioneer download site.
Microsoft Windows

If you use Microsoft Windows, just download the file from the "Windows" section.
Then the file can be unzipped with the free archiver 7zip.
Simply execute "pioneer.exe" to start the game. That's it!

Mac OS X

If you use Mac OS X you have to download the file from the "Mac OS X" section.
Download the .dmg Apple Disk Image and install it.


If you use Linux and you want to use the binaries, just download them from the "Linux" section.
To find out if you need the linux-32 or the linux-64 version, open your commandline and enter
uname -m
If the output is "x86_64", take the linux-64 version, else take the linux-32 version.
If you are not sure what to take, take the linux-32 version.


You can also compile the game from source code.
The code can be downloaded from here:
For a guide how to compile the source code on Linux, take a look here:
