Dome Keeper is a new Roguelike game that combines underground mining and tower defense. It's akin to the arcade classic Missile Command. Dome Keeper has just released an online demo on Steam ahead of the Steam Next Fest 2022 event. You can play it right now and dig underground to find the materials you need to defend your dome against the evil creatures that are poised to attack you. Dome Keeper places the player in a high-altitude dome above the surface of a hostile planet. Every time you play, you have to descend into the depths below, mining out the path to find precious materials for upgrades. The terrain is divided up into square blocks that are familiar to those who have played crafting games mining is as simple as bumping into them enough times to break them. Mining becomes more difficult and slower the further you go. It is recommended to upgrade your equipment before you get too far. Similar to Minecraft and Terraria Resources are usually tightly packed together and if you notice the glimmer of light in your tunnel, digging deeper will usually uncover more valuable materials that are waiting for collection. After being mined, the resources need to be manually brought up to your dome to be stored and used. This is done by pressing a button to tether resources to your suit, although the more you drag behind you, the slower you'll move. Eventually, Email 'll become totally immobile until you drop a few pieces on the ground. Once your resources are at the base and are in the base, they can be fed into upgrades for your drill and jetpack that will enable faster mining and traversal along and the ability to transport more resources at the same time without affecting your manoeuvrability. Additionally, you can upgrade your dome, which feeds into the second (and possibly the most important part) of Dome Keeper: protecting your base from an array of alien creatures. The tower defense portion is handled by a huge laser on top of your dome, that can be rotated around its surface in an arc that targets any direction. Email can hear any threats and direct attacks at your dome from down in the tunnels, so you'll know when it's time to dash back up and clean the house. Upgrades to the dome can also provide helpful information such as the time before the next attack and your dome's current health status. The moment is that Dome Keeper offers two difficulty settings : the default setting 'brutal' and a less intimidating "hard but doable" choice. Email feels pretty punishing initially, and the telltale sound of the banging surface will soon have you running back in a flurry - you can check it out yourself with the Steam demo available now on the store page of the game. We'll keep you informed and up to date on any standout forthcoming PC games that are scheduled for Steam Next Fest.
