OreSome is a 2D strategy game about ore -- exploring space for it, fighting aliens for it, blowing up planets with it. Build a network of frames and bots to defeat your enemies -- or just throw a sun at them. In a dying, decrepit universe full of foes, build up your forces and mine your way to the top of the food chain to explore further and further out into the void. By the time you're ready, you'll be powering light speed jump drives with stars, building Death Star style super weapons with black holes and in charge of the largest scale mining operation ever known to man -- all working for one of humanity's least scrupulous corporations -- and there's a lot of competition.
Shipyard Mode is the sandbox designer for creating enemies and encounters in OreSome. It lets the player drop in pretty much any of the items in the game, from suns to enemies and save the designs. If people make anything interesting, all they have to do is send me the save file, and I can poke it into the game in mere minutes. I’m hoping that’ll give OreSome a community that really feels involved with the game. This is the first release of any kind for OreSome. Please bear in mind, it's early days yet - if you come across any bugs, it'd be a great help in you could send me a report. If you're wondering how stuff works, there's a guide linked within. v0.7 adds a Swarm Select ability and a number of fixes and performance upgrades.
Saving while full screen problems fixed
Efficiency bugs improved
Ore Panel updating improved (again)
Nuke Frame crash refixed, hopefully
Added mouse panning (for shipyard mode only)
Added new Plan - Listening Post Base
Added Swarm Select ability. Left click and hold on the currently selected bot, a select circle will grow out if it. Release when it's large enough and any bot in range will form a defensive swarm around the selected bot.
Advice: When building something big you want to keep, save often. This is an early version, there are still going to be crashes, unfortunately – fewer with each version though.
