FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Miner Wars– Miner Wars 2081 is a six-axis space shooter featuring entirely destructible environments. The game is playable in a single player campaign, cooperative modes, and includes a further MMO franchise in the works.

Prague, Czech Republic, March 8th, 2011– Keen Software House a. s. is pleased to announce success in raising capital and a substantial step forward in production.

1,000,000 EURO INVESTMENT

Independent developer Keen Software House a. s. has reached one of its many milestones.

The corporation has received 1,000,000 Euros from private investors and the fund-raising phase of the company is finished.

The team is now able to focus entirely on the development of Miner Wars, the VRAGE engine, and other projects yet to be announced.

Keen Software House is setting up office in Prague, and looking to expand upon the current staff base.

The company is seeking to hire additional programmers, artists and web designers.

Keen Software House’s staff are very pleased with the news. The company is now able to provide a more protein rich gruel for emaciated workers, and instances of scurvy and rickets are on the decline. 

CEO and founder Marek Rosa is particularly pleased, citing that since fund-raising is no longer a burden to his schedule, he’ll have enough time to return to programming and finally finish reading New Moon.

To all you die-hard Miner Wars fans a very warm Thank You! We couldn't have gotten this far without you, so while we're in SUCH a good mood, we would like to share it by introducing a new Medal just for those who have supported us thus far: EVERY REGISTERED MEMBER on the forums will receive the First Adopter Award! This will be a special level of distinction among the future generations of Miner Wars players, and all shall know your awesomeness!

The staff is looking forward to your continued support while Miner Wars 2081 continues to become not just a dream... but a dream come true.
