Description

Sheep with Homing Mines. Minesheeper is a multiplayer arcade game that blends tactics with mayhem. Pit your wits against up to 7 other players, wielding a deadly arsenal of sheep-seeking homing mines, airstrikes, shrink rays and more. Each deathmatch takes place atop mighty craft including flying battleships and submarines. The game supports single player as well as local and online multiplayer.

History

Minesheeper started in August 2015, originally as a means of learning Unreal Engine 4, borrowing inspiration from the mighty Bomberman to help shape the project's direction. But it quickly took on a life of its own when the key element of "smart" homing mines was added, offering a radically different style of gameplay to anything else in the genre. It became clear that this game was a completely separate beast to those that had inspired it and that this was something the world needed to see. Minesheeper was created entirely by Darby Costello, including design, code, 2D / 3D art and music, along with the website, trailers and all promotional material. Darby has worked across the digital industries in various capacities for over a decade, including games. One day it dawned on him that he probably had a diverse enough skillset to single-handedly produce a commercial game in its entirety. Nobody he told this to believed him.
