To promote the release up Christopher Nolan‘s upcoming space epic, Interstellar, Paramount has released a brand new app, that will allow you to create a solar system based on the film into the palms of your hands.

See how far you can pilot the Endurance without running out of fuel or losing time relative to Earth. Sling-shot through solar systems using real-world physics and gravitational forces. Use wormholes to jump to new systems and survive the ultimate challenge of traveling past a black hole. Hit the jump to see the games features and some images from the app.

Here’s a description of the game:

Create and customize your own unique solar system with planets, moons, asteroids and more. Explore a universe of fan-generated solar systems and black holes in the Interstellar experience on Chrome, phone and tablet.

The game actually sounds more complex that something you would see on a survival mode game. It uses reality-based science to give the user a more gratifying experience. But I’m guessing not everyone will feel the same way considering how dry it got after multiple plays.

• Play on Phone, Tablet and Chrome
• Create your own solar system and share it with friends
• Customize planets, stars and asteroids
• Pilot the Endurance through friend’s and other fan’s solar systems
• Upgrade your ship to increase durability and range
• Earn mission patches for completing objectives
• Based on newtonian physics with simulated gravitational fields endorsed by the movie’s science advisor Kip Thorne
• Slingshot between planets and return research data to Earth
• Navigate past massive black holes

You can play the game on your browser or download it for free on Google Play to play on your Google Chrome.

Interstellar opens in theaters and IMAX on November 7th.
