Mining and base defense game Dome Keeper got a huge upgrade

By - | Views: 30,395

Dome Keeper was already pretty great. Giving you a mixture of mining, exploration, base-building and tower defense and now it's quite a lot bigger with a free update out now.

The Double Dome Update was launched on October 5th adding in two entirely new dome types with different armaments, and a new Dome Supplements system that changes how you do upgrades to make it a lot more interesting across all dome types. Have a look at their new trailer:

Some of the new content includes:

  • Added Artillery Dome.
  • Added Tesla Dome.
  • Added custom sprites for all primary gadgets per dome.
  • Replaced cobalt branches in dome tech trees with a new system, the dome supplements.
  • Added a new chamber type, the power core chambers. Retrieve the core inside to receive a supplement.
  • Added 6 dome supplements.
  • Added run modifier that lets you get 3 dome supplements instead of only one.
  • Added "mine view", where you can watch the mine you dug out after finishing a run and even show the resources you missed.
  • Added run modifier that lets you play completely without monsters.
  • Added classic "Dome Romantik" palette (orange, blue, purple).

Dome Keeper has Native Linux support and it is Steam Deck Verified. Seems the update has pulled in a lot more players too, with the player-count jump from around 200 to over 2,000 so that's nice to see for the developer. It's currently rated
Very Positive on Steam from over 7,000 user reviews.

You can pick it up on Steam with the GOG version only being for Windows.

The player increase is probably from the simultaneous 60% discount last week.

Its a nice Godot engine based game, but the combat isn't really tower defense (and it would be probably a better game if it was).

It's a new kind of tower defense; that's what makes this game innovative.

Yeah the discount and update were too tempting to ignore :P

That said, I also bought the cosmetic DLC, so the price is the same as the base game.

One of the few games I played right after buying (instead of waiting a few years...), I had a blast! I wish there was a bit more guidance on the first run, though, I had to look up a few things like how overdriving the shield would work, or how to unlock some chambers (the new type of camber unlocks with water, I couldn't find this information online).
