I think it might be seriously time to play a whole lot more Volcanoids, with the new Ground Support update adding in special drones you can build and it looks awesome. The update also adds in new achievements, a few performance improvements, Japanese and Dutch translations, audio improvements and lots of bug fixes.
This is the survival game where instead of building up a big sprawling base, you have a steampunk drillship to burrow deep underground with. It's a really clever idea that they keep expanding on during Early Access. These new drones you can build can help with defence, mining and more — you can even build a little fort with them. Check out the new trailer below:
Going back to it today, I'm impressed by how far it has come. Even at a 1440p resolution, it's performing so much better than it used to. Some small loading hiccups here and there but other than that, it seems to have progressed nicely. Looks a fair bit better too. If you're after a survival game that you can do in co-op, that's quite different to all the rest, it's worth a look for sure.
The game gets surprisingly spooky at times too. With you always on a timer before a volcano erupts, once it does and you come back up to the smoke seeing all the little lights of various enemies is quite unique.
Available to buy on Humble Store and Steam.
