Bombing Quest (Early Access)

Team Puh’s Bombing Quest is a single player bomberman fantasy RPG, where the ancient machines of a civilization long gone awaken you as the last protector of a mysterious ark. It was released in Early Access on the 4th of March, and will stay in Early Access for 6 to 14 months. Dive deep into the mists, blasting your way through hordes of fierce foes and unravel the reason for your existence.

“You wake up as a dwarf, chained in an exo-suit with no memory of the past. What surrounds you are the walls of an ancient temple. Your only guides are mysterious shrines. Your only ally is a friendly robot – the suit support unit. You make your way out of the temple to find out that its builders have long been forgotten. Humans have settled over the ruins of the old empire. )̶̺͐̓͋̇D̶̨̫̜͈͠C̷̞̒̈́̽/̸͔̿̾͝n̸̛̥͋p̴͎̻̳̾̆̈́̈j̵̳̰̓h̴̝̀̂f̶̧̮̱̂͠ṯ̷͍̒̒̇ẉ̶̮̂́͆͝S̶͕͂̌u̸̙͆̾͜9̷̖̞̮͚̾̆Z̴̏̋͜M̶̝̎̐r̵̟̰̎̎͗͠Ẽ̵̠͈̖̂́m̴͙͂̂0̴̾̽͗ͅ”̷̤͗͝l̷̝͈̥̓̈́̆̉q̴̢͛̔h̷̺̬̎͑7̵̨̳̺͚̇̒̾0̴̩̠̒͛̈Ḩ̷̭̊ͅa̵̢͎͛̅͒͜p̶͚̺̪͉͒Ċ̶͈̐͘v̶̦̔̽̈́ȃ̸̞̍%̸̸̖͕̲̃̑̈́̆͝͠v̶̡͑4̷̖̜̿͋͂̅ͅḊ̵͕̰̳̱̐A̶͇̱̔̌̌͋L̶͊̈́͘ͅb̵̛̥͓̑ͅa̶̫̘̹͆9̶̨͔̠̅t̵̮̣̘͒͊͗Q̴̵͎̣͕̰̭̾̿͆H̵̤͎̉̀)̶̢̥́̍͝5̷̠̌͛̒Q̸̫͇̇̓O̴͔͙̞͒͝ḫ̵̦̒̏͝m̷͎͕̼̋̌x̶̝͍̲͂̈͐̏K̸̟̼̊͊̌͊t̶̹̍̀*̸̘̬͙͔̂̒̽͛ŭ̴̩̯͛̀̔I̷̢͊̒̆5̸̻̩̀́͂͝L̸̹̯̰̘̅̓͘Q̶̤̃̇̆̕W̷̢̖̞̿̌̾Q̷̬̿X̴̫͍̂͂

Dangerous insects lurk in the shadows. Ancient rusty automatons keep digging towards the core of the world with the same relentless persistence they had in the day they were abandoned. In the middle of all of this is you – the last guardian of a mysterious ark, with your only weapon – the bombs that your suit produces.”

“Bombing Quest stays faithful to the classical bomberman battle mechanic – you fight on a grid, where you plant bombs, which explode in four directions. Once inside a grid, you need to think strategically on where and when to plant bombs to damage the enemies without damaging yourself.

As you progress through the game, the enemies will get quicker, smarter and will also develop more diverse attacks and behaviour, which will require you to react and adapt quicker. You will find components and gadgets to upgrade your battle suit to be able to produce more bombs with greater power, increase your health and speed, give you new abilities and so on.”

“The world is divided in biomes and is semi-open – meaning you walk freely and chose where and when to battle, but you need to progress with the story to unlock the next biome. Each biome has its own distinctive look and enemies, often requiring different strategy to be effective. j̴̛͖̜͉̰͊b̶̰̤͈͎͂͠D̸̩̏N̶̼̼̈́͗͝n̸͎̬͓̔̎ŕ̸͉̒Ũ̵̮̝̇͘M̵̜̼̙͑̕͜h̸̬̣̏̐̂D̶̤͉̪̉͗͆͘Y̵̛͙̞̌͘Ř̵̪͓̇͜d̶̺̳̤͊̏̐Ő̵̰̪̗̀̈́̕A̷͕͈͉͍͠ĥ̷͙͖a̸̙̙̬͇̓Y̴͍̱̳͋̅Y̵͖͔̓̍̓k̷̯̱͆d̸̪̈Ä̶͕͊̈́͝g̴͕̬͎̀́͝W̶̨̆̇͒X̶͕̗̫̊ͅ(̴̞̄̕͝8̷̢͗͊͜3̵̗̯̫̈h̵̦͑͠Z̵̩͘3̶̘̔0̷͙̠͈̚̚͝2̸͉̊̀̎O̶̢̱͈̒͝$̸̙̏͒F̷͖͙̘̀̚͝(̶̺̬̼̽J̸̜̯̀̍̕7̵̘̹̳̏̔6̵̭̘͚͆̈́͠͝ͅṬ̷̨̪̭̓͛̅̐)̸̜̄̎̂͘n̸̼̓́̎͝O̶̧̗̹͍̽b̸̖̥̀̈́͠1̴̬͂͊̈́͗Ẻ̷͓͓͈Q̸̹̜̙̮̇%̷͇̑̓͒̉0̵̱̹̞̦̍̃̍ It has one or more bosses. There is a different sub story related to each one, often with its own quest line. The quests are started by interacting with NPCs you encounter around the game world.
