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.

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?

I suppose this will be a blast if you play it after taking some magic shrooms xD

This game needs to be multi-core compatible, I get lag spikes or crashes which may be directly linked to the one core being used out of 4 being overloaded.

It seems to be that some people are entirely unafflicted by crashes, but some get them all the time. Cores shouldn't be a problem - the machines it's tested on are dual and quad core and there is some multi core optimisation. Could you post further details in the bug report forum. Getting these problems gone quickly is greatly important.

As a matter of fact. Anytime time this game does ANYTHING, it just crashes.

EDIT: It seriously may just be my computer. But I doubt it.

Apologies that you're not having the best experience - there should be a patch out within a day or so that fixes a bunch of these issues. Please bear with it, this is unfortunately still only an Alpha release after all.

Also, there is now a bug report forum. Any details on bugs you find would certainly be appreciated.

No worries - you've paid money, you absolutely deserve something you can enjoy. To that end, if you know when the crashes occur, just message me or post in the forum, it'll be fixed in the forthcoming patch.

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…
