Deep Rock Galactic.... Space Dwarves!

edited March 2018 in Games and Technology
A 1-4 player co-op game wherein you play as part of a crew of Dwarves shot from space in a drill-headed dropship into the procedurally generated, Bug filled caverns of a hostile world, in search of resources and credits!



There are four classes: The Gunner, the Driller, the Scout and the Engineer. Each with their own guns and gadgets that help them and their team navigate terrain and fight.

Your missions consist of gathering a specific type of resource (as well as a second resource you can gather to get a bonus). Along the way there are resources like Nitra that will allow you to call in supply drops and Gold that will give you extra credits on mission completion. You'll be accosted by waves of various face eating Bug monsters that don't take kindly to dwarfy types messing around in their nice caverns.

The caverns themselves are completely destructible, allowing you freedom to mine your way up slopes and around drops.

Between missions you can use the credits and resources you obtain to upgrade the various classes gear, as well as buying vanity items to change your looks.

It's currently Early Access, but so far I've been having a lot of fun with it and there seem to be a decent number of people to play with. You can play the missions solo, and you get a little hovering robo pal to help you out but I haven't spent much time doing that myself. It's out for Steam and Xbox currently.

    Loving this game, its like if the original Red Faction had a baby with Left4Dead.

    Been playing a lot of Engineer as those turrets are super good and the platform gun is amazing.
    feels more polished at this really early stage of early access than a lot of finished games.

    most missions are manageable, but when things go wrong they seem to go REALLY wrong.

    starting out you want to stick to 1 complexity maps and maybe drop the difficulty down to the 25% bonus until you get a handle on your tools.
    if you collect 80 Nitra and then press 5, you can call down an ammo resupply that has 4 charges of 50% ammo (this will recharge your consumables such as ziplines or platform foam as well)

    if you are 2 manning it then Engineer and either Gunner or Scout makes a very solid team. Engineer can drop platforms that the other can either zipline or grapple to for high up mining.
    You also always want to be thinking about getting back. leave paths or steps so you can retrace your steps once you complete your quota and have to do the mad dash back to the drop pod.

    Oh hey there's already a thread for this, saves me having to make one. I would be down for some PA groupups.

    :edit: things the OP fails to mention: Beard Customization.

    Yeah, haven't gotten much into the customization stuff yet. Spending my resources and cash on item upgrades first!

    Yes. A buddy shot this my way for my birthday Saturday since we'd been looking at it off and on all week and going "Yeah, that seems good..."

    We gave the multiplayer a shot and it was a pretty good time; I enjoyed Driller even though I think it's a little weak.

    todays patch lets you shoot while being grabbed by those roof-tentacles, this is a massive quality of life change for solo-play

    I got the 5k credits from joining the steam group, blew it all on driller because "Oh that has to be important". Driller actually seems kinda not important at all, but ive gone too far and im 100% driller4life now.

    I'm at a point where I've got most upgrades on everyone, I just can't be arsed to actively stick to the zones with resources I need. In any event, shall we attempt some group dorf today?

    It's just that drilling is kind of less effective for getting around than, like, everything else. The flamethrower is pretty rad.

    The drill is great for those times when you get lost so you just straightline it to the drop pod waypoint. Can also be handy on those vertical chasms which'd otherwise eat up basically all your ziplines to make it down.

    Don't think anyone's made one yet, but it'd definitely help organize runs. Of course, there's an important question to be had, do we go for the traditional wang somewhere in the name or keep this one kid friendly?

    I mean "Deep Wang Galactic" is charming in its simplicity.

    And yeah, I'll probably grab this Friday and try to group up with some of you fine folks this weekend. I've been looking forward to it for a long-ass time.

    I think discord has taken over almost every need for a steam group. If you want a channel for DRG we can usually make one on the discord and just use that to see who is playing and chat about it, etc.

    Driller got some buffs today on his flamethrower and drills. Also you now get at least some of your harvested crafting resources on a failed mission now.

    Decent day of dorfing here, finished off my noncosmetic buys, still working on getting scout and engie up to 20. We still need to come up with a good way to try and organize some groups, unless that's been happening without me.

    I get home at 10:30ish central time, tonight. Does anybody want to form up a posse? I haven't gotten to play this yet because solo seems like it misses the point of the game.

    I'll try and catch you for some on the Discord channel but I have board game stuff going on.

    Should be around most of the weekend, though. The driller buffs were Good and made me feel much less useless as one.

    That's really good, the mines didn't let that dwarf go.

    I also didn't really get to play much this weekend, only got a few games in. The escape is always hectic no matter how prepared you feel when you press the button.

    Did some mining Friday and got to experience the new flying guys, as well as join one game in the middle of a turbo-f'd extraction and save the day as the Gunner.

    The flying bugs are a real hassle and, true to form for flies, super distracting. They don't seem that dangerous but they do soak up a lot of ammo to get rid of, which isn't awesome.

  • KarozKaroz Registered User regular
    Oh hey there is a thread for this. I've been having a bunch of fun and they just came out with the Explosive Update

    Update Notes
    UPDATE 24 - EXPLOSIVE EXPANSION
    MAY 15 @ 6:52AM - GSG_JACOB


    Take your seats, Miners!
    We got new grenades, eye candy, personal drop pods, a bunch of new enemies, and a TON of gear tweaks to brief you about, so grab a brew and listen up!

    Also - look out for the [COMMUNITY REQUESTS] - these are things you guys have been very adamant in talking about and bringing to our notice, so keep up the good work! It is, as always, very appreciated. :D

    --- PATCH NOTES ---
    GRENADE LOADOUT
    The boys and gals in R&D have been hard at work once more! All the old grenades have been reworked, and a ton of new ones have been added. Each class can now unlock up to three distinct types of class-specific throwables, with the potential for more to come in future Updates.
    - Engineer: L.U.R.E, Plasma Burster, Proximity Mine
    - Gunner: Sticky Grenade, Incendiary Grenade, Cluster Grenade
    - Scout: IFG, Cryo Grenade, Pheromone Canister
    - Driller: Impact Axe, HE Grenade, Neurotoxin Grenade


    LOADING SCREEN MAKEOVER
    We’ve finally gotten our new orbital drone cameras installed, enabling much better and varied scenic views of mining crews descending to the surface of Hoxxes at the beginning of each mission.


    END SCREEN MAKEOVER
    The End Screen shown at the end of each mission has gotten a much-needed overhaul as well. Now you get to pose and display all your lovely cosmetics in full 3D while the mission data ticks up!


    STEAM ACHIEVEMENTS
    They’ve been a long time coming, but they’re finally here! 50+ Steam Achievements have been added to the game, ready to be unlocked! We’ve strived to make them retroactive anywhere it made sense.


    NEW MOBS
    NAEDOCYTE BREEDER
    Imagine a floating bag of slime, constantly spewing out pulsing egg-sacks full of ravenous young. They may look like gentle giants (depending on how much you like tentacles), but trust us when we say you want to take these oozing blimps out quick.

    NAEDOCYTE HATCHLING
    The result of leaving the Naedocyte Breeders to do their thing. We’ve run into more developed varieties of these before, but this is the first time we’ve ever encountered them in their larval state. They are hatched ravenously hungry, so mind yourselves that you don’t get overrun.

    Q’RONAR YOUNGLINGS
    Younger and softer variation of the Shellbacks. Unlike their more solitary-minded mature state, the Q’ronar Younglings hunt in packs. Do not underestimate them.

    GOLDEN LOOTBUG
    Now, this is an interesting one. Unlike the common Lootbug, this particular breed gorge themselves on gold alone. Management has no qualms with employees taking them out for sport and personal gain.

    HUULI HOARDER
    This rare beastie seems like a bit of an oddity among the otherwise mostly hostile Hoxxes fauna. Often referred to as “The Clown Car”, the Huuli Hoarder is an abject coward and will run away from any potential threat once startled. However, like the common Lootbug, they subside solely on a diet of precious minerals - as in, taking them out will net you a tidy profit, just take care that you don’t let it separate you from your team.


    LATE JOIN DROP POD
    [COMMUNITY REQUEST] Let it not be said that Management does not care about employee complaints. Joining a mission already in progress now dumps you into a personal drop pod, letting you safely land in the mission area instead of utilizing the horribly unreliable teleportation technology used so far. As with the Supply Pod, it is recommended to keep a safe distance to the landing zone.


    BETTER DISCORD INTEGRATION
    Sign up for the Miner’s Union and join our wonderful Discord community directly from the Space Rig! We have bigger plans for this down the line, but for now, you can use it to see the number of active members and such.


    MISSIONS AND ASSIGNMENTS
    - [COMMUNITY REQUEST] The Mission Map now displays Assignment Icons for every team member, making it easier to choose which missions to go on.
    - [COMMUNITY REQUEST] The Hazard 5 Unlock Assignment now requires you to play the associated missions on Hazard 4 difficulty
    - [COMMUNITY REQUEST] Dwarves leaving a game will now drop a resource pouch with any materials they had in their inventory
    - [COMMUNITY REQUEST] Added an option to opt Bosco out of solo missions at the Drone Modification Terminal

    UI AND CONTROLS
    - Personal Temperature HUD overhaul
    - [COMMUNITY REQUEST] Added option to disable Mouse Smoothing
    - Improved gear stats display in the Equipment Terminal


    PICKAXE POWER ATTACK
    Surrounded by awful bitey things? Let them know how you feel about that! While having your pick out, hit Fire to unleash a devastating Power Attack. There’s a cooldown on it, so spend it wisely.


    MODELS AND AUDIO
    - New Heavy Sentry model for Engineers
    - New Sentry models for the Minehead
    - New Floodlight models for the Minehead
    - Several new enemy and weapon sounds
    - New Hoxxes model shown on Space Rig


    GEAR TWEAKS
    PICKAXE
    - Fixed the Q-mining exploit

    "THUNDERHEAD" HEAVY AUTOCANNON
    - Fixed a bug with Autocannon fire rate not resetting
    - Fixed Autocannon lighter barrel assembly mod
    - Tweaked Autocannon fire rate to increase in a more linear manner

    "LEAD STORM” POWERED MINIGUN
    - Decreased Stun mod chance
    - Decreased Stun duration
    - Fixed Aggressive Venting modification to properly function as client

    DEEPCORE GK2
    - Renamed Stagger to Stun
    - Gear stats now display the weapon's stun on weak point hit functionality correctly

    EXPERIMENTAL PLASMA CHARGER
    - Renamed Normal Shots Bounce mod to Bouncy Plasma
    - Renamed Charged Projectile Explodes mod to Unstable Containment Field
    - Increased Radius and Damage of Unstable Containment Field implosion
    - Fixed some EPC shots doing "generic" damage

    “BULLDOG” HEAVY REVOLVER
    - Removed Stun Mod (anyone who purchased it will get a refund)
    - Added stun chance as an inherent property of the gun

    JURY-RIGGED BOOMSTICK
    - Stun Mod proc chance increased
    - Tungsten Pellets Mod armor damage multiplier increased
    - Blast Wave description made more clear (hopefully)
    - Blowthrough Mod changed to Super Blowthrough (can penetrate multiple targets)
    - Fixed Blast Wave mod to work consistently

    ZHUKOV NUK17
    - Removed the Stun mod (anyone who purchased it will get a refund)
    - Rearranged some of the other mods to better balance the potential builds
    - Increased the accuracy penalty while moving
    - Increased the speed with which accuracy is regained
    - Decreased accuracy spread when shooting
    - Increased Tier 4 Expanded Ammo Bags mod from +100 to +150 ammo

    M1000 CLASSIC
    - Added a tutorial hint for Focused Shot
    - Fixed Stun modification to work properly

    BREACH CUTTER
    - Fixed the Breach Cutter so it no longer damages the player if fired directly downwards


    MISC TWEAKS
    - Deeptora Honeycomb is no longer immune to fire
    - Glyphid Praetorian acid gas can now be lit on fire again
    - Fixed cases of mission weapon assignment completed not being counted correctly
    - Fixed some invisible colliders in levels displaying as ‘Unknown Material’
    - Credits pages now change properly
    - Fixed a bug that caused a floating Shield Generator or Satchel Charge to appear at the - location of the spawn point
    - Fixed some bugs related to saluting while reloading
    - Fixed certain armors that caused the player’s arms to be invisible at the beginning of a mission
    - Fixed the revive progress bar so it no longer stays on the screen if another player starts and cancels the revive process
    - [MIXER Interactivity] Resupplying Ammo now works
    - Super Blowthrough modifications changed from 10 penetrations to 3 for all weapons that have them
    - Added a failsafe for Shield Generators that fail to deploy

    Loving the axe grenade on the driller, chuck it into a praetorian and just chunks the health down.

    Busy unlocking weapons and leveling up my various miners, really come to respect each of their strengths with Scout and Driller becoming my favs.

    I thought I was gaining too many credits for a bit but I gleefully spend it like candy so I still have plenty of items and customizables left to unlock.
