Miner Wars 2081 - Second Investor Signed!

London, United Kingdom, 15 November 2010

Great news in the hunt for investors! Miner Wars 2081 and Keen Software House announces the acquisition of a second investor, an internet entrepreneur by the name of Stanislav Vojtanek, for an undisclosed, but reportedly substantial amount.

"We are still negotiating with a few other investors, and are hoping to close it soon so we can focus more on game development." Says Marek Rosa, founder and CEO, "We feel that running independently of any contract with a publisher is better for everybody, so we want to have good financing for Miner Wars development. Thanks to all of our wonderful fans out there, pre-order sales have increased potential investors' confidence in the company."

If you would like to invest in this company for future benefits, or know someone who might like to invest, be sure to send an email to marek.rosa@keenswh.com
