Mine precious gold from the deformable terrain in order to buy better weapons, digging tools, and deployable defenses. Use these assets to defend your disembodied brain and bankrupt your opponent!

Old-school 2D sidescroller pixel graphics coupled with an extremely detailed physics simulation makes for a mix of nostalgia and surprising gameplay.

Yup, a fresh build is out, immediately available here, or on the HIB download page for you dear Humble Bundle customers! Mostly fixes and tweaks in this one, but there’s some new fun content too!

  • Fixed broken custom pie menu options; now they work as advertised
  • Fixed over-drawing of glow effect on selection cursor and aiming reticules. No more fat glows
  • Fixed duplicate team objective cursors added each frame in activities.
  • Fixed additional (I think all!) mouse control conflicts with other control schemes.
  • Fixed resolution setting issue. The game will now try to use whatever res is set in settings.ini, no matter how high or silly it is. The in-game options menu will still automatically set to 2x fullscreen scaling on high resolutions though. This is a compromise between what will suit first time players, and the power users who want inappropriately high resolutions.
  • Gave the Coalition Gatling Drone some more Coalitionish sprites – Lizard
  • Added Thumper Grenade Launcher; tweaked Nailgun, Railgun, Scouting Rifle, Annihilator, and a lot of other stuff –CaveCricket48
  • Improved Lua AI sentry behavior. Improved aiming at very short distances – Abdul
  • The Dummy Rocklet now respond to delivery/stay/return orders properly – Abdul
  • Made grappling gun more mouse-friendly – CaveCricket48
  • The Lua AI was modified to make it easier to add custom behaviors. Humans try to fly to their targets after losing both their legs. Added a Lua AI for the Gatling Turret – Abdul
  • Updated enemy drops in activity scripts, fixed a bug on the Annihiliator – CaveCricket48
  • AI now fires the Annihiliator with longer-charged shots. – Abdul
  • Heavy Sniper rounds no longer bounceCaveCricket48
  • Balancing of Blast Runner and Gatling Drone and Turrets – TheLastBanana

Good idea for a game, but no thanks. Game industry is drastically changing so I'm saving my money for other games that are coming out.

If they really want to profit out of this, they have to provide enough content and stuff so in the end result, it will provide at least 40 hours for the average player?

No online modes of any sort, kinda kills it's profit potential btw, and only the fan base keeps it alive at this point.

Deciding to flame? Don't bother, seeing how I expected this to happen when the truth gets out. Comparing this game to other games can be a nasty method as the other games are most likely well funded and developed.

I don't wanna flame you, but if you are looking for a cool game, get minecraft. It's an indie game, 'cause the game industry is getting way too focused on graphics... Gameplay is being underrated

indeed my friend, this game's got a lot of modding potential, that would get the player to play some more hours, it's just like oblivion if you ask me.

still, i like this game, a lot.

This game is quite awesome. Though, as it's been mentioned, an online or LAN multiplayer is needed.

Beyond that it is still in early development, I do hope they put some of that music awesomeness in the opening to work in in-game scenarios.

But it's moddable with a LUA, and other neat things programmers can do.
Online play isn't provided, but can be modded to provide multiplayer.
Just hope that DATA doesn't intend to make it impossible to mod it to play online...
