Prague, Czech Republic, November 28th – The wait is over. Keen Software House just released Miner Wars 2081, the most anticipated 6DOF survival space simulation shooter. Miner Wars 2081 is now available worldwide through all major digital channels, including Steam, GameStop, GamersGate, Desura and www.MinerWars.com

Miner Wars 2081 is a 6DOF (six degrees of freedom) action-survival space-shooter simulation-game set in the year 2081, 10 years after the destruction of all planetary objects in the Solar System. Player operates an advanced mining ship in a fully destructible and open-world environment, which remains persistent as he completes missions or plays online with others. Realism and survival are key aspects of gameplay.

“From day one, I have been pushing myself and everyone in the team to make the best 6DOF (six degrees of freedom) gaming experience of our lives and I'm incredibly proud of my team and our supportive community. Together we have achieved this goal.” said Marek Rosa, CEO and Creative Director of Keen Software House, author of Miner Wars 2081.

We tried to push boundaries of innovation on many fronts - first by developing our own voxel engine VRAGE, allowing us to present fully destructible and persistent environment, set in an open world area containing the whole Solar System, then by polishing intuitiveness of the game controls. We believe that good gameplay starts with immersion and you achieve that only if the game reacts exactly how player expects it.

Miner Wars 2081 is just the first piece in what we want to become a large Miner Wars universe. In this first title we focused on the journey of two brothers, Marcus and Apollo Rainier. Trying to uncover what they expect to be a groundbreaking discovery leading to ancient times, they travel through the whole Solar System, visit vastly different sectors, and cooperate to fight with warring factions. In a desperate attempt Apollo is forced to seek the help of the dark side – The Fourth Reich. We believe that players will enjoy the immersion and story, which is supported by heavyweight musical lineup and professional voice acting.

“Releasing Miner Wars 2081 is the culminating point of my work in the last three years. I am very happy that now I can start focusing on our next projects. I am full of ideas and Miner Wars 2081 just scratched the surface of what can we achieve with our in-house engine - VRAGE. Miner Wars MMO will blow your minds; Also I can’t overlook that the community demands for the continuation of the story and gameplay introduced in Miner Wars 2081.” said Marek Rosa as he jumps in excitement.

“I personally want to thank to our community for supporting as for all these years, keeping our forums troll/hater-free and especially for helping us to get through Steam Greenlight” said Marek Rosa.

6DOF (six degrees of freedom) games are back baby!

Miner Wars 2081 is also available in retail stores in Czech and Slovak Republic. Players may expect an update with Czech localization.

Well an unusual tactic of adding friends to gain attention to your game. I recommend writing news like I do for my mod. That way I have 118 watchers so far.

As for your game it does looks very good very unique indeed. I will track you right away. It seems your game has a great psychics engine. Loved games like Wing Commander & Freelancer-Starlancer, Freespace series etc.

Good luck on the project.

Hello guys,

Sorry for the incovenience. We were not expecting this that people would take this is as negative thing.

Let me explain the reason why we're adding friends on Moddb.

The reason is very simple, Because we would like to get feedback on the work we're doing by people from 'outside'. One way that we thought that would help alot was by adding friends
We're busy with making a game page on Moddb, so that one should be up in a few days.

Kind Regards,

The Miner Wars Team

All forgiven as long as you learn from the mistake mate; we all learn by making those in the first place.

Apart from that, I wish you a pleasant stay on a great website.

So this is a temp page or something?
I must agree with the others. You should have waited for the actual game page. Your point of having "outsiders" comments is valid for almost every other game. Yet they don't use tactics like yours and do it the correct way from the start.
