This isn’t exactly a game, but I’m sure you can spend a few hours playing with it regardless, Stellarium is an open source planetarium application that is actually in use in real planetariums worldwide!


It’s extremely customizeable, allowing you to add or remove features at will (Such as the earth, sky, guiding lines, stellar inf, etc) Even if you’re not into astronomy, it’s worth downloading to check it out and mess around with the sky.

Ever have trouble identifying constellations? Not any more…


You’re not limited to the view from earth either…


Educational as hell.
