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.

looks really neat, though the music sounds like it would be much better suited in a medieval game instead of a top-down space shooter. and the synths that were used were kinda poopy too :/

I would be happy to make you music if you'd like. message me if so.

I`m highly interested in this game for quite some time already. Is there any demo to try out?
I assume shipyard is not the demo of actual game, or am i wrong?

Shipyard is what functions as a demo, but it's just a way to mess about making ships and get a feel for the thing. Currently there is no 'full' demo. When the game is released completely, there may be, but for now effort's getting the main game built.

Thanks for replying, guess i'll stick to just tracking OreSome for now.
Good luck with the development process!

Would you be able to add a "Load Game" option to the menu when you are ingame. so you do not have to go to the main menu to load a game.

also any advice to avoid they little monster things (yellow sun that sticks to you, green thing that shoots in 4 directions etc) becouse when I try to set up my small little bussiness they keep coming along and pushing or shooting my ships into suns etc while I am trying to do things with otherships.

also is there a way to get better gun for my main ship (the builder ship) its hard to hit the little critters with the mining thing.

Great game though its hard to get required mats to make some stuff =P

You'll want to set up some defences - mines are a quick and dirty option, or frames with blaster bots for point defence for a more long term choice. Later on, you can use explosive walls and more to take this further. Instead of upgrading the builder you'll want to build a bigger ship around it from frame that can take more fire and do more. I'd suggest messing around with Shipyard Mode a bit to see some of the things you can do, or watch some of the youtube videos.

There's still some work to be done with help systems, though everything is described in campaign mode, not everything is obvious. Rotating parts can be achieved by holding right click while dragging them out. The thruster upgrade can only be accessed with cheat mode and will likely be modified before it goes in the main game.Text boxes do scroll... but there shouldn't be many that have too much text in. Fullscreen mode is in the usual place, in options.

And scrolling is how? Both the mouse wheel and arrows don't work for me -_-
Once you fix all of the bugs and such, you'll have achieved a masterpiece :D

They should have a slider at the side as in a regular window. Could you take a screenshot and either send it to me or post it on the forum? It ought to be easier to see the issue then.

No scrolling bar that I've seen...
Same thing for any in-game message boxes as well.

Brilliant game! It feels like a crossover of 'Asteroids 3D' and 'Miner Wars 2081' and 'The Incredible Machine'. For a 2d strategy game, it has great graphics. The quests and places to go seem endless. The gameplay feels very arcade like and makes the adventures in space so much fun. I have only been playing for a few hours and I'm hooked. For me the only down side is it crashing, which is logicall considering it's an alpha version. I will add that for most computers it seems to be a stable game…
