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.

Still crashes to desktop upon loading a savegame. I just started a new game in the most recent version, saved it, went back to the menu and tried loading it. Immediately crashes.

I don't get any info except for a "Has stopped working" window. Does the game write any kind of crash report?

Nevermind it looks like it always switches back and forth between languages. Also, savegames are automatically corrupted if you save when the region settings are not English. Sometimes the game starts up twice, with one window in the background. Pay attention to that and you should be fine.

If it makes you feel better, most likely it'll go up when it reaches Beta ;)
Think of it as a low price in exchange for beta testing and bug reporting, if you like!

Even after setting it to English it just keeps loading forever and uses 100% of one CPU core.

Is this still true of the latest version? If so, could you post any details you can in the bug report forum?

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…
