UnderMine Challenges Brave Souls on PlayStation 4 Today
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – 30 March 2021 – UnderMine, the action-adventure roguelike brimming with secrets from developer Thorium Entertainment, begins its dangerous quest today on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 via backward compatibility.
Enjoyed by more than 600,000 brave adventurers on Steam, Xbox Game Pass, and Nintendo Switch, UnderMine delivers a roguelike experience inspired by the genre’s most beloved titles combined with crisp, detailed pixel art. Enter the titular UnderMine as a worker tasked by the uncaring Overseer with uncovering the source of the mine’s tremors.
Starting with only a throwable pickaxe and a single bomb, collect gold before slimy Pilfers swipe it, collect keys to open treasure chests full of useful items, and uncover power-granting relics. Blow up walls to find secret paths with more loot and even potential allies to help future runs in exchange for that precious gold.
Buy permanent upgrades that make the miner hit harder, survive longer, and cause more powerful explosions. But with shops providing game-changing items for each run and only some money making its way back to the surface upon the peasant’s death, spend that gold wisely.
Reaching the bottom of the mine is not the end, for the truly brave who demand even more challenge can conquer the Othermine. Say goodbye to those hard-earned upgrades, and start each run with a random assortment of relics, upgrades, and curses. And if that’s not enough, prepare for even more challenge, with new content in development for all versions of UnderMine.
“It’s been a wild six years since I first founded Thorium Entertainment and started the first work on UnderMine, and now the game’s finally available on all the major platforms,” said Derek Johnson, Founder, Thorium Entertainment. “This isn’t the end of the story whatsoever, as we plan to keep building on UnderMine and making the game bigger and better.”
UnderMine is available now on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 via backward compatibility for $19.99. UnderMine supports English, French, German, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Russian language text.

Founded in 2015 by Derek Johnson, with his fellow former Relic Entertainment co-worker Clint Tasker joining him, the two-person Vancouver studio brought together by their passion for games. The duo was inspired by their experience in AAA development and the processes that make those games great while having the benefits of independent development, such as artistic integrity and being true to themselves.
