'UnderMine' (ALL) Gets Xbox One and PC Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on June 30, 2020 @ 2:29 p.m. PDT

UnderMine is an action-adventure, roguelike with a few RPG elements, where you adventure deep and discover powerful relics, deadly enemies, hidden secrets, and a few friends to help along the way.

Grab a pickaxe and delve into a mysterious mine where danger and riches await. Explore a hostile environment deep within the earth as a lowly peasant seeking freedom and fortune. Press further into the cavernous depths until that worker meets an untimely end and then send in the next poor sod, who will pick up their predecessor’s gear and hope a better fate.

Make the best of each peasant’s lot in life, using whatever’s on hand to aid in their subterranean travels and discover powerful relics, potions, gold, and more that someone, someday, might use to forge the perfect run. Along the way, miners will be forced to make tough decisions about whether to pinch pennies or spend their savings, going all-in to purchase a key item or upgrade. 

Bomb walls and blow up rocks to uncover hidden passages, loot, and new allies buried within the mine while fending off the creatures that call its tunnels home. Then, at the end of each level, square off with massive, room-filling bosses that require strategy and skill to slay.

UnderMine will be available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers day-and-date across both Xbox One and PC with a host of new content and improvements.

Version 1.0 introduces a new final boss encounter with a cinematic ending, post-credits story content, additional scenarios, plus new items, enemies, challenges, and, of course, secrets. The full game arrives after nearly a year in Early Access, which spanned five major content updates that added new levels, bosses, the “Othermine” true roguelike mode, and more.

"We’re almost there!” said Derek Johnson, Founder, Thorium Entertainment. “We’ve spent years toiling away in the mines and we’re finally nearing the end of this run. Whether you’ve been with us the whole way or are just joining this journey, we look forward to showing you what lies at the end of the tunnel when UnderMine hits Xbox One, PC, and Game Pass this August.”
