Rocket Jockey is a PC game developed by Rocket Science Games and published by SegaSoft in North America in 1996.

A PlayStation version was planned for the Spring of 1997[3], but was cancelled. This version was also set to be published by SegaSoft, marking the first time a Sega-affiliate company would publish on a Sony video game platform. Six-person LAN multiplayer was advertised on the original box but was not included with the game. The multiplayer patch promised by inserts in the game's packaging did not appear until several months after the launch[4] and was never included in any retail version.
