Desura is experiencing some issues with their servers that is preventing installation. We only know that they are working on it, but don't have an ETA - hopefully we will have more information later this afternoon (will post here).

In the mean-time if you've purchased the game but can't install it, please send us a PM and we'll make sure you can get a copy until Desura is fixed.

thanks (and sorry)!

UPDATE: according to our tests this issue has been resolved, we're still waiting for a confirmation, but we're pretty sure things are good to go again.

Well, we did it again. In our rush to fix pristine install launches, we apparently broke multiplayer joins. Cue the facepalm.

I got the Xbox 360 version several months ago and I have never been disapointed and I picked up the PC version which is exactly the same, an Adictingly Fun Game to Play.

While it has been in Beta the Gristmill Team has not only showed a high level of comitment to it's players but has been fun on the forum as they have listened to players about their questions and suggestions.

It has been fun seeing all of the new features they are continually adding like the newly added Player Named Venator AI.

Also unlike any other game I have seen there is a Programable Alien Robot that you can use to build or mine beside you, and with the comunity on their Forum learning how is an exciting adventure. Personally it is one of my favorite features!

They have a very ambitious plan ahead for the game. New technology, new mobs, new biomes and the list is growing. Gristmill has a very devoted following and are one of the few developers that I am aware of that has really reached out to and regularly interacts with its players regarding new ideas. I think there is a very bright future for Xenominer and Gristmill

A unique thing with this game is that its not only a mob that can kill you, the environment you play in can kill you. Little to no atmosphere means that lack of oxygen or too much radiation are the two biggest enemies in this game. One of the best features besides the programmable bot, is the much deeper crafting system in the game. It requires you to think several steps ahead of a planned build to ensure you have everything to need to make the item. You have to in some cases, fabricate multiple materials to make components to make an item. Strategy comes into play in many ways.

The Xbox 360 Version they do have Multiplayer and have stated on their Forum that when they get the Server Resources Required they will be making the PC Version Multiplayer as well. But it is Awesome to play on Multiplayer sharing components and Meds to stay alive and build Mega Builds on different worlds.

Thereis multiplayer on the Xbox 360 Version (only $1). The PC version is a port of te Xbox version and is still going through bug fixes and such before they add Multiplayer. PC Multiplayer has a lot more things to consider then Xbox Multiplayer (port forwarding server hosting and such).

Looks quite nice, Downloading the demo, I am primarily interested in the scriptable entities though.

After 4 hours of play, I can say I am quite amused, however it needs far more features to be of any significant gameplay.

Right now, there a lot of it is just building. However, it will take toy a good ~10 hours or so to get the the highest tier of materials. There are a decent bit of materials to use for building, and they have a lot planned for the future.

Xenominer is way better than Minecraft, and I'm a hardcore Minecraft player too.
