Description


Undermining casts you in the role of rival miners, hollowing out an alien world in your Universal Mining Vehicle (UMV) for fun and profit.  Alongside prized resources like uranium, titanium, diamond and niobium, your're also likely to find powerful alien technologies left behind by an ancient civilization.



Players drill through solid rock and rubble to find resources and alien technologies.  When their UMV is loaded they drive back to the refinery on the planet surface where they unload their resources, buy expansions to their equipment, and fill mining contracts that ear star bucks.





Upgrading UM equipment allows player to dig deeper
and faster to fulfill more contracts. 

The game ends when most of the contracts have been filled. The winner is the player who has the most star bucks at the
end of the game.  


The key in Undermining  is to be adept at outmaneuvering your opponents in your Universal Mining Equipment.
