UnderMine, the action-adventure roguelike brimming with secrets from developer Thorium Entertainment, blasts open secret passages today on Nintendo Switch after more than 600,000 miners enjoyed the game on Steam and via Xbox Game Pass.
Step into the shoes of an unlucky adventurer and charge through a dangerous system of mines and caverns filled with monstrous creatures, puzzling challenges, and heavenly rewards. Fight carefully, for reckless peasants may find themselves meeting an early grave. Death is not the end, as the next poor potential hero receives some of the fallen worker’s gold and can purchase permanent upgrades or get a financial leg up on their run.
Demolition experience is a plus; use bombs as weapons and tools to locate secret passages containing hidden loot or potential allies. If the hired hand can survive against the many malicious monsters in each level, they then have the chance to square off against the massive, room-filling bosses that guard more spoils.
Abilities granted from relics, magical potions, and treasure add a layer of strategy and planning for the mindful adventurer. Make use of these wondrous items, enhancing the current run’s profit margin. Collect all the gold possible to make the next run easier, or purchase equipment and upgrades aiding the current descent.
Veteran miners can test their mettle in the Othermine, a hardcore roguelike experience; start each descent with no upgrades for maximum replayability. Thorium will dive even further into the UnderMine with post-launch updates in the coming months for all platforms with new zones, bosses, and items.
“We put a lot of work into the Switch version of UnderMine, making sure it runs perfectly at 60 frames per second in both handheld and docked mode,” said Derek Johnson, Founder, Thorium Entertainment. “If it’s your first time delving into the mines or if you’re picking it up to play it on the go, UnderMine on the Switch is the perfect way to play.”
UnderMine is available now on Nintendo Switch for $19.99. UnderMine supports English, French, German, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Russian language text.
