Deep underground lies a reminder of Boarkind’s darkest hours.
All it takes is one little boar to dig it back up.

A block puzzler with an exploratory twist, Full Bore throws the player into an open world filled with crumbling mines, arcane ruins, and technological wonders with only curiosity to lead the way.

This world is packed to the brim with secrets and hidden rooms, because when everything is made of blocks, puzzles could be anywhere.
