Up for a bit of fun digging? RandoMine is coming in 2023.
Arriving via the Bitmap Galaxy (they previously behind YesterMorrow) and Blowfish Studios teams, with plans to drop onto Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mac via Steam and GOG in Q2 2023, RandoMine is a 2D dwarven roguelite platformer in which you’ll be looking to make the most of a trusty pickaxe in hope of vanquishing all evil. It may sound like Deep Rock Galactic, but it’s far away from that digger.
A light-hearted affair, RandoMine tells of a glorious day when a deserving group of heroes are promoted to demigods at the prestigious Celestial Tavern. With all going well, one seemingly innocent, celebratory drink could cost these heroes not only their good standing but their physical form to boot. It could also release hundreds of chaotic Randos into the world and destroy the ancient tavern itself.
Following this unfortunate incident, in a fit of rage, the wise and powerful Innkeeper revokes the heroes’ promotions and transforms one into a donkey – both only to be restored once the tavern is fully repaired. Right the wrongs of four … well, three overzealous champions by traveling the lands in search of much needed funds. Dive into the treacherous underground to mine gold, gems, and other riches, fending off the very vermin these nincompoops released.
From there, making the most of the groups unique skills will be for the best. There’s Kromp’s rock-solid pickaxe, Loppathia’s trusty shovel, or Praask’s fast-acting drill which will all help you conquer local tyrants across three biomes to vanquish evil from the land, at least if the halfwit heroes survive. If they don’t, it’s no real matter for death is but a mere inconvenience, as you go about respawning at the hub and starting fresh.
Gold will be in plentiful supply no matter how well you do, letting you go about upgrading the group’s arsenal, and healing springs to rejuvenate after battle. When all are ready you can press on until the tavern is repaired and the heroes are imbibing ale as the next demigods of the realm.
“RandoMine is a fun, vibrant game that can be enjoyed for hours on end,” said Alexander Buzgó, Game Designer, BitMap Galaxy. “Heroes can choose which character they want to embody and change it up encounter after encounter, keeping every individual run fresh and exciting.”
RandoMine looks like nothing but fun. Keep an eye out for it as it drops onto Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Mac in 2023.
