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.

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.

Warning for non English language gamers - there's currently a bug where saved data doesn't read correctly, causing a crash if the system language is not set to English. Fix will be in the next path, but until then, changing the setting to English while playing fixes the issue.

This game looks amazing and looks equally addictive. The graphics are clean, vibrant and for lack of a better word - purely stunning. I would love to play this game when it's been released. :)

I just downloaded BF - honestly the games aren't that similar, beyond the perspective and setting. Just two takes on an idea. OreSome allows ships to be fixed together during gameplay, and has a dynamically generated single player world, BF is more of a usual RTS. I intend to sell OreSome, but I'm hoping people will think it's worth it.

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…
