Miner Wars sales success and new version!

Prague, Czech Republic 12.October 2010

 

Miner Wars is a video game featuring: Space FPS Shooting, Fully Destructible Environment, Single Player Story&MMO

 

Last week Miner Wars has been released at a 70% discount in its pre-alpha version. We have allowed our fans to buy the game before its even released and save a lot of money on its purchase. I can already state that the sales have been going spectacular and the sheer number of new registrations proves it. Never before have we seen so much interest in the game! We have also given our fans the possibility to contribute money to the development. Some of our fans have donated some really nice sums! We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all of the people that have contributed. Your help was much appreciated and will never be forgotten.

At the time of the release we have promised our fans that there will be frequent updates to the game.

 

So here is the first one of many!

 

Sandbox mode - players now can generate their own sectors that will contain random asteroids and enemies.

 

Harvesting / mining - YES! Players can now start to accumulate funds by harvesting materials. We have kept our promise on persistent world so your harvested funds will stay with you all the time. They will never get erased. You have a few good reasons to start harvesting now. All the materials will now give you the same amount of money and your funds will be accumulated instantly. In the future builds different materials will yield different earnings and the player will have to sell the materials on motherships or stations. So start now and get a decent headstart!

 

Editor - start creating your own sectors. Soon you will be able to share these sectors with your friends.

 

Ship customization screen - tweaked

 

Mining drill - now working properly

 

Some minor bug fixes.

 

This is just the first of many upcoming releases. Not only the game will cost less now but you will also get a pretty nice headstart when the game is released. Its a good idea to buy Miner Wars now! :)
