About This GameDeep underground lies a reminder of Boarkind’s darkest hours. All it takes is one little boar to dig it back up. Harkening back to the NES era, Full Bore is an open-world puzzle game that leaves you to your own devices. With curiosity as your only guide, you will figure out how the blocks around you behave, delve deeper into a strange underground, and eventually piece together the story of a world transfigured.Full Bore debuts a unique lighting engine that creates rich, atmospheric environments out of its old-school pixel art. Combined with our original bluesy soundtrack, you will soon find yourself immersed in Full Bore's mines, temples, scrapyards, lava tubes, inexplicable lakes and/or mysterious laboratories.With over 150 areas, no single intended path and secrets everywhere, Full Bore gives you a world in which you can always find something new (until you find everything)New on SteamFull Bore is digging its way to Steam for the first time in May, featuring both Part 1: The First Dig, and the never-before-played Part 2: Into Hard Earth.

More puns!Features Be a pig.* Dig. *You're actually a boar, but that doesn't rhyme with dig. Explore at your own pace as you learn how you can interact with the blocks around you Focus on puzzle-solving and exploration, not conflict.

Cute but nothing amazing.- Lotsa exploration to do, if that's your thing. The world is pretty massive and its not linear. Many roadblocks though.- Many, decent puzzles. Makes up the bulk of the gameplay, so puzzles fans will be happy.- Relaxing ambience and atmosphere. The lighting effects are really good and make a nice mood.Cons:- Lack of direction. I would often get lost or stuck and unsure where/what to do. A lot of backtracking. Not so fun.- Story is incoherent and did nothing to really engage me. Characters spout a lot of unimportant dialog. Player character (a hog) has no personality (blank slate)- No voice acting. Seeing as there are many NPCs and they have several lines, its a real shame.- Many puzzles are frustrating and block progress. Could not be bothered to finish some the harder ones after many tries.- Too many dead-ends and empty rooms. No powerups. No special collectibles to mention. Lacks rewards in general.- Lacks combat or action. Only a con if you like that to be part of your game, which I do, at least a little bit.I personnaly regret my purchase, but only because I got frustrated by the puzzles and unrewarding exploration, and backtracking. If you love puzzles, especially hard ones, and don't need a relevant story, nor combat/action, then you'll like it. It's casual.For a similar experience, one which I personnally prefered, see Steamworld Dig.. Kind of reminds me of FEZ. Might seem short, but gives you a lot to explore and piece together. Puzzles are actually complex and kind of diverse, very challenging and can be frustrating at times so some patience is needed. The controls can get weird especially when climbing or going over edges, but manageable. The visuals it's nice, moody, and has uh "environmental storytelling", can get repetitive for too long. Overall, it's a great game, very recommended.. It's been a long time since I played this game now, but realized I should definitely have left a review for this. I am in love with this game. The way it combines puzzles with an open world is unique and they pulled it off really well. The puzzles are both challenging and satisfying, and it has a great set of simple puzzle elements that it explores in interesting ways. And the atmosphere and bizarre story are engaging and distinctive, with just the right amount of creepy. This is a really excellent game all around - seriously underhyped.. Full Bore is the kind of game where everything feels like it was really well thought out. The central concept of the game is solving puzzles while you explore the game's world. Along the way you collect gems and read about the lore of the events that happened leading up to the present time within the game. Because of some excellent puzzle design and well paced introduction of new puzzle mechanics the game never felt boring to me. Full Bore also features a time travel mechanic that lets you undo the last number of things you've done as well as soft resetting the current puzzle you are working on. This alone helped make what would have been frustrating and tedious puzzle solving into fun and difficult puzzle solving. Only major gripes with the game are that you have to re-solve a number of puzzles when you go through a previously explored area for some, but not all areas. This is exacerbated by the lack of a clear map and very conservative fast travel locations, which make traveling to certain locations to clear out the map a bit of a pain. Overall I quite enjoyed Full Bore.. I feel like I am mindlessly collecting gems too much. It's nice if you do like puzzles and lots of exploring.edit: in the end, I appreciated it and enjoyed the game when I changed my feelings and just enjoyed the puzzles in a puzzle game.. This game is a hidden gem (pun not intended?). Controls are simple, but tight. Don't expect to get any special abilites or to level up. The variations in gameplay come from the levels, and there's way more variation than you'd think when you start. Except for a couple of optional puzzles, no puzzle is unfair. They're well thought out, some of them giving you face-palming epiphanies when you finally get how they work.The story though...oh man. You can finish the game in less than 10 hrs if you don't care for the story or to complete all the puzzles. But you'd be doing yourself a diservice, beyond the fact that it's worth it to actually play the puzzles. Without spoilers, this story of a mining boar goes deep. It deals with philosophy, religion, quantum physics... There's a neat mystery that you can put together if you take the time to do it. Nothing obtuse, and it's satisfying to complete.Definitely recommend it. One of the few games in recent memory that I felt compelled to complete to its true end.
