Developed by XGen Studios and now available for PS4, Super Motherload is an arcade style digging adventure for one to four players, set on Mars in the retro future. The story is told through fully voiced transmissions, and illustrated cutscenes as written by comic book veteran Kurtis Wiebe.
You must dig around to collect minerals and return to the surface to sell those minerals for cash. That cash allows you to refuel, repair, and - most importantly - buy upgrades so that you can drill deeper into the Red Planet.
The further you dig, the more difficult it is to progress. Your mining pod is upgradable to suit your style of play with various combinations of speed and capacity upgrades, bombs, items, and quest rewards. Eventually you'll find the perfect balance and upgrade progression that allows you to blast through to the core and find out what's happening to your comrades below. There are a number of strategies for efficient digging, and with the aid of co-op players, you'll begin to discover better methods to reach your full potential with each trip.
