IMPORTANT PRE-ORDER INFORMATION

This a PRE-ORDER for Gravitic Mines. Once all the printed materials (boxes, manuals, labels, etc.) are in our hands, we will immediately begin shipping orders in the order they were placed. Right now we're looking at the end of February as a reasonable estimate. Updates will be posted in the AtariAge Forum (This message will be updated with a link once the thread has been created).

Gravitic Mines

The 'roids are closing in from all sides. You knew you had put up a brave defence, but now, after hours of stressful piloting you cannot take any more. Reaching forward you reboot the navigation circuits one more time and initiate the Hyperspace Engine, knowing it will not work for long, hoping for something better.

Blackness. Then a brightness so blinding you are unable to block it out. The universe feels like it is being dragged through you. Everything goes completely silent. There is nothing. Endless, infinite darkness.

You wonder if you are dead. And then the darkness explodes into a billion points of light, which slowly fade.

Adrift in space, again. Great. A faint glow on the scanner indicates a planetary system nearby. A strange energy signal is allowing you to lock the Hyperspace Engine and set co-ordinates. With no other option you jump again, to appear in a... hangar?

It appears deserted but the power is still at low levels and the atmosphere is breathable. Exiting the EWS you take stock of the situation, rest and inspect the ship. It is badly damaged, punctures in the hull tell you it will never fly again.

Gravitic Mines

Exploring deeper into the hangar you find what appears to be an old fighter craft. It is intact but was clearly being repaired here before the base was abandoned. It seems familiar somehow...

The scanners are the least damaged, so you set to work to bring them online first. Good to know where you are, right? Energy signatures! ones that you have seen before... when they attacked the home-world. This must be where they came from!

Repairing the communications array now becomes the top priority. You have to warn command of this! Days pass before you get a response to your signal requesting backup, time which you use by fitting the hyperdrive system from the EWS into the fighter. It will be perfect for sneaking past their perimeter defences!

Once the call for help was received things move quickly, and the base is swiftly transformed into a forward attack point. Now you begin to plan how to take the fight to them and make sure they can never threaten your world again.

Gameplay

Gravitic Mines is a love letter to classics like "Thrust", "Gravitar" and "Lunar Lander", but blends classic gameplay with modern flavors of games like "Gravity Crash" or "Pixel Junk Shooter". And it is an exclusive title for the Atari Jaguar 64 bit system!

The gameplay consists of three pillars: 1) exploration and puzzles, 2) shooting foes and managing limited fuel and ammo, and 3) landing your ship on pads to grab items or rescue survivors. The game is very challenging.

The core gameplay mechanics from these games feature tight, responsive controls, and 60 FPS was targeted so that Gravitic Mines would be very smooth and natural to play. Gravtiic Mines is split over two full campaigns, with sixteen missions (and four boss encounters!) in each campaign, along with eight training missions which can be played at any time. New missions unlock as previous ones are completed. Gravitic Mines has a compelling story written by Andrew Rosa to tie it all together and create a sense of world building, where hopefully players will ‘care’ about what they are trying to achieve. The Gravitic Mines AI has a distinct personality!

Multiple mission types are present, from ‘rescue missions’ to ‘recon’ and ‘explosive demolition’ bomb-drops. Under the hood, Gravitic Mines features a scripting engine, allowing each level to contain sequences designed to challenge the player and provide more entertainment. Alongside all of this, Gravitic Mines also has on-line integration. Each cartridge can hold up to three Pilot Profiles which can track a players progress and unlock achievements via a QR code which will update against the reboot-games website.
