Description

Follow a team of notorious Gold Diggers in this Endless Digger with a twist. You take control of one of the wild west's best kept secrets: Gigantic Superlicious Steam-Punk Digging Trams. Your goal? To find yourself some Gold! Just steer the Digging Machine through multiple layers of the earth while you dodge Giant Worms, Flame Pillars and any dangers hidden in the depths as you dig deeper and deeper. In this endless runner you won't just be collecting coins! You'll be mining for gold by drilling through multiple awesome layers of earth each with a distinct gameplay tactic. You'll be dodging obstacles, grinding on mine cart tracks, avoiding lavapits and supercharge your wagons to outrun giant lava worms.

History

Gold Diggers was a game we started developing right after the development of our succesgame Munch Time. This time we were inspired by a couple of great Endless Runners, but we wanted to create one in which action, reflexes and skill were accompanied by a bigger measure of control. We thought of creating an endless runner that would go vertical into the opposite direction. (underground!) and give the player a sense of progress and variety by adding different challenges and gameplay mechanics with each layer the player would drill through. Meanwhile the name Gold Diggers was an intentional pun to the actual cowboys looking for riches in the gold rush era, as well as people looking for riches with their partners. We tried to emphasize this on the characters!
