Story

Rob and John Donkin are brothers and the two halves of indie dev team Bad Viking. They are veterans of the Flash game scene having created games such as Hambo, Super Villainy and Bad Eggs Online. Broken Ground, a spiritual successor to Bad Eggs Online 2, is a multiplayer artillery game which draws inspiration from, of course, Worms but also one of the first games that Rob and John ever played, a little known game called Tank Wars (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tank_Wars).

Broken Ground is their own take on the genre. You play as a soldier and get assigned a random loadout of weapons at the start of the game. There are classic missile launchers, grenades and sniper rifles but things get more interesting when you start throwing around remote control missiles or projectiles that teleport your enemies to random locations or the Gooseberry - a weapon that increases damage every time it bounces, encouraging players to aim for ridiculous trickshots. And that's before you even get started on the maps. Moving platforms/obstacles, destructible terrain, smashable terrain, and indestructible terrain all combine with interactive buttons that have different effects to make maps that are constantly changing and occasionally throw up interesting surprises.
