February 4th, 2016 – The latest monthly update for Planetary Prospectors: ARM (Asteroid Resource Mining) from Nefarious Dimensions is now available. The first asteroid mining exploration video game with virtual reality integration available on Steam will be enhancing its core gameplay and system mechanics, revealing more details of the game’s plot. The developers are asking for feedback from the community on the art and game content as they prepare for the game’s final release.
A major upgrade that was highly requested by the community was the improvement of the Mining Repair Rescue Mech (M.R.R.M.). Upcoming changes will include a newly improved upgrade system that will allow players to spend their credits, earned from mining with the M.R.R.M. to enhance and strengthen its attributes. In future updates the appearance of the M.R.R.M. will also see visual improvements and enhancements.
As players bide their time in jail or drudge to escape the confines of their cell block, they become aware of an alien parasite that has infiltrated the mining barge. After a meteor breached the hull, the advanced alien parasite has commandeered the ship and taken the captain and crew hostage. Without spoiling the story, the latest update to Planetary Prospectors: ARM advances the plot and reveals details of the characters’ origins and desperate need for survival.
Nefarious Dimensions would like to thank its community members who have reported bugs and made suggestions to improve the core gameplay experience. The developers have listened to your feedback and worked diligently to eliminate issues raised by players. They are dedicated to improving the game to create the best possible space mining adventure game before release.
