Miner Wars– new video and screenshots revealing very large but still destructible asteroids


London, UK, August 17, 2009– Keen Software House today released new Miner Wars video and screenshots, revealing very large but still-destructible asteroids. The video was captured from the actual game and the scene contains two 8-km asteroids, five medium-size asteroids, and 300 mining ships.

“In this footage we tried to show how your mining ship is small compared to the biggest asteroid. Even your base ship is little compared to them. All asteroids are fully destructible,” says Marek Rosa, Game Director of Miner Wars.

“I guess that in a few years we will be able to reach the moon’s size. It is only 400 times bigger than our asteroids. Think about it– a fully destructible moon,” laughs Marek.

The video and screenshots are available at http://www.MinerWars.com


Miner Wars is a 6DOF underground and space shooter played in a fully destructible environment and is a combination of single player story game and MMO.

As a player, you operate an advanced mining ship in an open world asteroid belt area. You dig kilometers of tunnels, harvest the ore, travel the solar system, fight your enemies and discover mysterious alien secrets.

Game play is led by an epic story and is a combination of a single/multi-player game, cooperative, or you against everyone.

The story will introduce you to many types of missions: rescue, exploration, revenge, base defense, theft, transportation, stealth, search and destroy, pure harvesting, racing or just flying around and destroying everything you see.
