This is the game jam version of Dome Keeper.

Originally developed in 72h for Ludum Dare 48. The web version can have crackling sound, use the download version if it bothers you. If you saw Dome anywhere in recent time, it was a much newer version than this one here, now called 'Dome Keeper'.

Really great twist on classic concepts! Love the atmosphere and flexibility of mining. Pretty tough in this version!

The windows downloadable version has a problem in the options menu. Impossible to move the mouse pointer... It is always flickering! Maybe use same keys in the game would be a good choice.

(+1)

This is a really polished demo, feels really great, nice and atmospheric.

(+2)

Great game. Casual was fun. I could play and beat it in a single sitting. Great because there's no save.

(+4)

cant wait for the full version to be added onto here

Full version is on Steam as Dome Keeper

(+2)

I loved this game! The only bug that I found was that if you hold space for the lasers and kill the creatures before they come on the screen, the hostile mob indicator will keep on blinking even though all of the creatures are dead.

(+1)

great game

(+1)

I absolutely loved this game! It was so much fun and intuitive, and I really enjoyed figuring out the best way to win. The only downside was realizing it was coming to an end haha, but I genuinely loved the game. Highly recommend giving it a try!

(+1)

There's a glitch where if you die when you have the digging upgrade, the speed upgrade, and/or the anti gravity upgrade (the one that lets you carry any amount of materials without slowing down) and respawn, you respawn with all of the upgrades.

(+2)

really fun game! my only couple of criticisms would be - 

with regards to the difficulty scaling, it really feels like the difference between 'easy' and 'normal' is in the later half of the game? for me at least i wish there was a mode that could ramp up to the hardness - it's just when i'm in the early part of the game i really need to get my bearings/get on solid ground. also - it would be cool if there was an upgrade to show how close you were getting to the core/how many levels down it is, or something else that at least reminds you what the objective is. maybe it's a little silly, but i got caught up so much in the process of mining and defense and upgrades that i totally forgot the goal was to get to the core, and got a little confused/frustrated once i'd upgraded everything and wasn't sure what to do next. 

really cool design, though - it's very cute and i love the colors, and the gameplay is one that imo immediately pulls you in!

(+2)

This is the demo, this isn't remotely reflective of the full game at the moment.

(+2)

ahhhh I was so disappointed when I reached the core lmao, I wanted to keep playing!!

I feel you

im not living with my mom im just broke

I think it's worth the price but you can always replay this version for free while you wait for a sale on Steam, that's what I use my wishlist for.  :)

(+5)

Absolutely loved it. Getting the two-laser upgrade and wiping out the hordes of melee monsters was so satisfying since they gave me so much trouble. The game was relaxing yet tense at times. The aesthetic was perfect. Music design was great and having to switch between mining and fighting kept either from getting too tedious. You ought to be proud of yourselves.

(+3)

This game is great! I played on relaxed mode, and getting all the upgrades is SUPER rewarding!

(+6)

I saw the steam version and immediately remembered playing this during LD48. This was one of my absolute favorite entries! So happy to see it get a full release! Congrats!

(+5)

Are we ever going to get a full release on here?

(+10)

I can't promise it yet, because i can't decide this alone - but i'd love to! Itch deserves as many games as possible that help give them back a bit of revenue. They did so much for us, with hosting all our free games, so i feel i owe them. Right now, the reality is just that we cannot support launching on more than a single platform, because we are so small. I hope we can change this some time after release on Steam (12 days from now, phew!).

(1 edit) (+2)

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, you're right, Itch does deserve as many games as possible.

(+4)

Felt very rewarding + not tedious imo. Absolutely loved it until the end! Hope to see more :-)

(+1)

played it and got to the core, I really liked it!

(+2)

Played this as well as the demo, love how far it's progressed and can't wait for the full steam release!

(+3)

I just noticed you were planning a Steam release for this game!

This made my day: I鈥檓 sooooo happy to see a jam title making its way to a full enhanced release on Steam <3

Good luck!!
