Action, adventuring, dungeon exploration like found in The Binding of Isaac and a sprinkle of RPG mechanics makes UnderMine a lot of fun to go back to and a huge update is out.

Since it doesn't affect the story in any way, they added a female peasant avatar to play as. They say it's more than just a sprite-swap though, as they've given them "a new portrait, new sounds, new names, all custom animations, and is occasionally referred to differently by NPCs".

There's new encounters in all zones, a bunch of new NPC chatter, the Black Rabbit NPC will now buy Relics you collect that you're not a fan of and a strange Altar may appear between Goldmine 1 and Cavern 4 that might do something interesting too.

You're still given the peasant entirely at random—both their look and gender.

Additionally there's 28 new relics to find during a run, 17 new potions, 16 new blessings and curses and a ton of bug fixes as well.

UnderMine is definitely one of my current favourite Early Access titles. The developer, Thorium, are hitting the sweet spot of repetition with the dungeon crawling side of it as you travel through some of the same areas with various different encounters and enemies to gradually build up your gold and unlock more. The exploration is fun, the combat can actually be quite challenging and it looks great. Personally, I'm enjoying the setting here a lot more than Isaac.

Going by their roadmap they're going to be adding in an entirely new game mode, a new zone, new traps, hundreds of new encounters and more. A lot still to come, can't wait!

You can find UnderMine on Steam now in Early Access.
