Don’t play this 800-player (!) online version of Bomberman if you have work to do

Look, I really wanted to keep working today, but then happened.

Bombermine is an online version of developer Hudson Soft’s classic Bomberman action games. Only this version features 800 simultaneous real players and insane powerups that turn players into Pac-Man and Nyancat. Also, Hudson doesn’t really have anything to do with it.

You can head to to start playing right now. The developers are holding a beta test, and all of the servers are up and running.

Bombermine keeps track of the all 800 players on a leaderboard, so you can see how well (or poorly) you are doing. I have zero kills and seven deaths right now, and I’m ranked 768 out of 800. Skills!
