OreSome is a 2D strategy game about ore -- exploring space for it, fighting aliens for it, blowing up planets with it. Build a network of frames and bots to defeat your enemies -- or just throw a sun at them. In a dying, decrepit universe full of foes, build up your forces and mine your way to the top of the food chain to explore further and further out into the void. By the time you're ready, you'll be powering light speed jump drives with stars, building Death Star style super weapons with black holes and in charge of the largest scale mining operation ever known to man -- all working for one of humanity's least scrupulous corporations -- and there's a lot of competition.

RSS The Portal

In which the tech tree is completed and the game can be completed... kinda.

Posted by on

Short one today - the final frames (at least for the immediate future) have been added to OreSome, along with a few AI upgrades. This leaves the tech tree complete, with every research item serving a purpose. The tree may be modified in the future, but that will only be in response to necessity rather than simply to add new features. The new frames are to be used in the single player campaign to complete the game. After acquiring the technology to build the portal pieces, they must be assembled and triggered to get to the final moments of the game.

How to set up the portal is shown below, but in order to trigger the portal, you need to have one of each of the star types connected to power it - red, blue, yellow, white dwarf, pulsar, quasar and black hole. When this is done and the active ability key is pressed with a build bot in the central hardpoint, the portal is activated. It's not overly exciting currently, but that will be improved at some point in the future.

Added Portal part frames - only accessible with cheats currently, will be used in campaign to complete game
Added ability to change planning mode key
Added AI will use Shield Ram and Mining Frame more effectively
Added Large bioform AI far less likely to ram stars
Fixed Wrong number of research points required bug
Fixed Planning mode checks research before allowing purchase
Fixed Various minor bugs

So, if you feel like it, try out those portals, curious androids!
