Prague, Czech Republic 4.October 2010
This last phase of development was rewarding, but really very hectic. In recent weeks, we have intensified our efforts to establish relationships with publishers and investors. The good news is, We have made a lot of progress in this regard and so we have decided to share our progress with all the fans. Literally! Finally, we are publicly releasing the game in its current pre-alpha state at a 70% discount from the price of the final version! Every player who chooses to buy the game at this stage of development will not only be able to play the game now, but will also receive monthly updates, as well get the full game at its release with no additional charges. We will be adding a lot of content to the game as we progress. As time goes by, and we near our final release date, this offer will become more expensive for you, so now is the chance to get the game for just a small portion of the price.
STATE OF THE GAME
Currently the game has one functional sector and basic single-player gameplay. We will be adding the multiplayer part of the game quite soon with arenas for competitive game-play. We have also added an editor in which fans of the game will be able to make their own sectors. Very soon, players will be able to share these sectors online with their friends. In the near future we will also add the possibility of sharing these sectors with the entire multi-player community. The final state of the first installment will be the single player campaign with full co-op story and multiplayer arenas with deathmatch and team deathmatch modes. After the release of the first installment we will continue to work on the MMO part of the game which will contain all the advertised features along with a few surprises! We are not ready to disclose the final release date yet as we need as much feedback from the community as possible.
TO THE COMMUNITY
We believe that with our ever-growing community we can keep our heads high and bring principle production to a successful close some time next year.The community has continued to grow by leaps and bounds: we currently have something over 70 000 fans returning to the website regularly, and 250 000 unique visits on the website. We have been able to reach these numbers thanks to our ever-supportive fan base which continuesto spread the word! We wish to express our sincerest thanks to all of you, and to future fans who will one dayjoin our cause. In the beginning we would have never thought that Miner Wars could actually be SO successful and that it could attract so much attention. I am glad that the fans of the genre have proved us wrong.
