Do some mining with machine guns in BORE BLASTERS

By - | Views: 12,717

8BitSkull developer of the awesome Void Scrappers and Fates of Ort has announced BORE BLASTERS, a game all about drilling with machine guns.

The developer said "Drawing inspiration from mining games like Motherload and Galactic Mining Corp, Bore Blasters takes the genre to the next level with high octane action and fast paced gameplay. Fans of digging and collecting will find plenty to love, while the addition of deadly enemies and mysterious artifacts will keep even the most seasoned miners on their toes."

8BitSkull is one of the few developers that use Defold Engine, which is free and has full Linux support with editor and all that.

I am all for diversity and competition, so I try to highlight Defold as often as possible, with Unity, Godot, and GameMaker taking the spotlight in the 2D games field.

Hahaha, now I can't unsee it!

Anyway, this looks like my sort of thing, so I'll be giving it a look.
