Online Multiplayer Solution

We know that much of our audience has been interested in playing this game online with friends. And even though development has halted on the game, we still really want to help people enjoy ORE with friends from far away. So we think we may have found a good solution.

Some very cool people have created a totally free app called Parsec that lets you host remote players on your local machine. Normally we wouldn't promote this sort of thing on our Steam page, but after getting a demo from the Parsec team and trying it ourselves, we were totally blown away at how well it worked for us.

Visit www.parsecgaming.com and watch their super simple instructional video on getting set up - it's as simple as setting up a profile, adding your friends, and launching the game. We recommend the host have strong internet connection, especially on the upload side. With good internet you should have a near-zero latency gaming experience with friends from anywhere. This solution doesn't just work for our games, it works for ALL local-only multiplayer games. But the craziest part is: Parsec is FREE. Definitely worth giving it a shot. Hopefully this helps.

Thanks for all your time and support, and we hope you enjoy ORE!

About This Game

ORE is a couch-cooperative twin stick shooter where you and your friends are space miners draining a hostile alien planet of a volatile resource that's corrupted the planet's inhabitants. Fight through a handful of levels and navigate the planet's varied surface to collect as much ORE as you can before the planet implodes. Once you've gathered enough ORE to upgrade your crazy weapons, take a trip to the planet's core where you will face the corrupted Core Wurm that's causing the planet to collapse-in on itself. Defeat the Wurm, save the planet, and get rich!

ORE merges roguelike game structures with twin-stick gameplay in order to create high-risk, high-reward systems for players to navigate. The game also uses friendly fire, a shared economy, various weapon damage types, and more to encourage intentional cooperation between players. With our game’s intricate and dynamic enemy behaviors, alongside a handful of unpredictable guns, any play session can quickly turn to a chaotic fight for survival.

1-4 Players: Team up with as many as three friends or attempt to solo the game!
Local-Cooperative Emphasis: While you can play alone, the game was built specifically to be enjoyed with friends.
High-Risk, High-Reward Systems: Players are in control of when they want to leave the planet surface with their stash, or keep fighting for more loot!
Crazy Weapons: Each weapon feels entirely unique and has designed to be either great or terrible depending on the situation and enemies you face.
3 Dangerous Biomes to Explore: Travel across our frost, swamp, and lava environments to explore old excavation sites as well as undiscovered terrain.
Shared Economy Structure: Everyone shares the game's resource pool, so work together and spend wisely!
