Super Motherload Released on Steam Today!
Super Motherload Greenlit — Thank You!
Release date: 2013
Set on Mars in an alternate Cold-War era, Super Motherload is a 1 to 4-player couch co-op digging adventure with storyline by Image Comics' Kurtis Wiebe, a fully voiced cast of Soviet and American characters, and a procedurally-generated world that changes each time you play. Purchase powerful upgrades and supplies for your mining pod as you progress and prosper, as well as rare Specials Abilities with random availability.

You, the player, work for Solarus Corporation, an inter-planetary mining operation that has developed the infrastructure needed to harvest the precious resources of Mars to meet demand back on Earth. Soon after being dropped on Mars, you begin to discover that things aren't quite as they seem.

Hey Playback! We are working every single day on the PC version right now. I made a post in response to the discussion topic here: I hope it gives you a bit of insight as to what's happening on our end. We are pumped to be bringing Super Motherload to the PC and to the loyal fans of the original. You all have been incredibly patient with us and we thank you for it! Our participation on this page has been a bit thin lately, but rest assured, the reason for that is that we are working hard on getting Super Motherload ready for a PC release. Thanks for your continued interest in our game. We can't wait to get this thing out in the wild!

It's been out on PS4 and even PS3 for quite a while now, yet there hasn't been any word on the PC version on either Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or even here on Steam for months... To quote several people below me; why are you pushing it so hard on consoles when the original game was made popular on PC? Releasing on consoles is fine, and probably a great way for you to expand as a games studio, but there are a ton of people here on PC eager to revisit this classic too, yet you now seem to be more or less ignoring us. I don't have any problems with waiting, but an actual update on development now and then would be appreciated by a lot of people here. Thanks.

Looks nice but honestly I rarely get to complain about 2d graphics. But the visual style and detail in this one just sucks, even compared to the first one. It might be the reason I won't buy this.
