Set on Mars in an alternate Cold-War era, Super Motherload is a 1 to 4-player couch co-op digging adventure with storyline by Image Comics' Kurtis Wiebe, a fully voiced cast of Soviet and American characters, and a procedurally-generated world that changes each time you play. Purchase powerful upgrades and supplies for your mining pod as you progress and prosper, as well as rare Specials Abilities with random availability.

You, the player, work for Solarus Corporation, an inter-planetary mining operation that has developed the infrastructure needed to harvest the precious resources of Mars to meet demand back on Earth. Soon after being dropped on Mars, you begin to discover that things aren't quite as they seem.

Key Features:

  • Storyline by award winning Image Comic's writer Kurtis Wiebe of Peter Panzerfaust & Green Wake fame
  • Full Voice Overs and a full-length original score by Grimes-backing musician Eric Cheng
  • Storyline & Unlimited Digging gameplay modes
  • 100+ Explosive-based Puzzles to solve
  • Branching storyline choices with Multiple Game Endings
  • An Epic Boss Battle
  • Support for 4 simultaneous Gamepads
  • Runs at 60FPS in Full HD (1080p)

Super Motherload is the sequel to XGen Studios' original hit Motherload, and is currently in development for Windows, MacOS & PSN.

XGen Studios is excited to announce today that they’ve brought Super Motherload back to the platform where it all started: the PC. An in-development version of Super Motherload is available starting today on Steam for $14.99 with a 10% launch week discount through the Early Access program. This latest PC release adds to the growing list of supported platforms, which also includes PS4™ and PS3™.

“Although initially slated for Summer 2014 release, we’ve decided to allow eager PC fans to get their hands on an Alpha version of Super Motherload a bit earlier” explains CEO & Founder Skye Boyes.

Super Motherload’s addictive, zen-like gameplay has attracted much attention from industry journalists, appearing as the subject of a Penny Arcade comic and garnering a 8/10 from Destructoid. Game Revolution calls it “an awesome blend of obsessive compulsive profiteering and addictive, satisfying gameplay”, giving the game a 4.5 out of 5.
