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.

The lack of instruction for this game is in my view, pretty bad. Don't get me wrong, I love the universe, the idea, and the detail put in, but better (and more technical) explanations for the shipyard and each part would be great. For example, how do you rotate parts?
And also just a little knit-pick, but I feel that the final thruster upgrade makes you go way too fast at times. The addition of some sort of speed control would be helpful.
In total, this is a pretty good game relative to how it's in Alpha. Keep it up guys!

Oh and I forgot to mention, is there a way to scroll down text boxes? So far I haven't found a way and there seems to be a lot of info that I'm missing.
Also, is there a fullscreen mode?

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.

Same thing for any in-game message boxes as well.

Not plans exactly, but inklings. Monogame would be the likely avenue - but there's no guarantees on when or even if, I'm afraid.

Please, could you update the standalone version of the game? Thanks.
The last standalone version is 0.31 and the newest of the game 0.50

Sure, when 0.51 goes up, it'll go up with the standalone version too.

If you could post details on the forum - such as when it happens and if the crashes have anything in common, that would be really helpful to getting the problem fixed.

Been trying to replicate this and can't so far - do you have a save that you can cause the crash at will? If you could upload it, that would make it much easy to track down.

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…
