Welcome to the Quarries of Scred.

You will surely perish.

Quarries of Scred harks back to a simple arcade style - dig down, collect different minerals and dirt ore and return to cash in! Strategic use of lasers, land mines and self-destruction will ensure access to hard to reach areas, though care must be taken at all times within... the Quarries of Scred!

Guide Bob the Digger through the Quarries as he attempts to excavate a fortune in hopes of activating a teleporter - enabling him to escape his creditors.

2014-07-06 - Update 004

  • New game modes have been added:
    • Darkness mode
    • 60 Second Challenge Mode
    • 120 Second Challenge Mode
  • The following items are now available for tech slots:
    • Flare launcher/Flares
    • Stabiliser Launcher/Stabiliser
  • Ability to open twitter website & form a #DailyQuarry tweet automagically has been added (Press F12 on Daily Score Screen)
  • The following new threats have been added
    • [REDACTED]
  • To ensure presence of new tiles, spritesheets now conform to XYZbasics004.png rather than XYZbasics003.png.
  • Overlay.png added to sprite files - this will be required for all sprite sets in future, and is used to cover black borders when the game is in widescreen mode.
  • QoS will now check a file on noblekale.com for detection of most recent version. If the version listed in source is lower than that found on the URL, a minor 'Update available' is displayed on the main menu screen. If file is not found (no internet connection or noblekale.com goes down), this will not appear. THIS IS NOT DRM, and will not affect your ability to play.
  • QoS now pulls keys from Keys.dat on startup - meaning that people can remap them if desired.
  • Spectacular new intro tune from @cfxmusic
  • Wonderful new Spriteset, Pelagic by @erichermit
