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.

  • VSync option added, and enabled by default.
  • Timer now pauses when game is in menu, etc (but not during lost focus)
