Miner Wars MMO - Free Copies Until December First!

This week there's a lot of good stuff to cover. Today we're announcing what features we plan to have working within the next few engine updates! Might wanna pay attention, this could make your day.

Also on the agenda this week are a few reminders about some things you may be interested in; the number of site registrations revealed, (pretty impressive number); and then a fun new segment called the "Top Miner Awards", for which there are no actual awards, just the glamor and fame attached to being a world class prospector! (World-class? In space? Shouldn't it be Space-class?)

Important information you should know (regarding a recent MMO Announcement): How you can get a free copy of the MMO version of the game. Hurry up though, the deadline is the first of December. More information below.

UPDATE SUMMARY
*MMO Announcement
*Engine: Some well-anticipated features are in the works.
*Reminders
-Public meetings with members of the team on saturdays
-Catchphrase feedback/ideas
-Vote for Miner Wars 2081 on indiedb!
*Community: A major landmark in site registrations, Top Miner Awards

MMO ANNOUNCEMENT
Keen Software House will grant anyone who has already pre-ordered the game, and ANYONE who orders BEFORE the first of December, 2010 (That's *December 1st, 2010*), will be granted a free copy of the Miner Wars MMO.
We stress that it's important to remember that Miner Wars 2081, and the Miner Wars MMO are two separate products, although "2081" WILL have a 'classic FPS', small server-based multi-player system.

The official announcement/explanation here: Minerwars.com

ENGINE
Some seriously complex features are in the works, and probably just the kind of features you've been waiting for.
The to-do list includes a way more advanced Level Of Detail (LOD) system, (which will feature much smoother transitions and improved FPS), dynamic shadows, and yes... MULTI-PLAYER MODE. Right now, angels are singing in the sky for you, I'm sure.
Of course, the Miner Wars 2081 player should keep in mind it could take a while to get all these features in presentable condition, but now you know some really high-profile stuff is on the way!

A complete loadout on the current build's features can be found here: Minerwars.com

REMINDERS
*Every Saturday, members of the Miner Wars 2081 development team are holding meetings for live feedback from the community.

COMMUNITY

Registrations:
We are proud to announce that the Miner Wars site now has OVER 5000 registrations. The more people around the stronger we get! We can't thank you guys enough.

Top Miner:
The site reports that over 269,008 "money points", (or whatever the hell they are), worth in mined ore has been gathered so far by a lot of enthusiastic miners out there! Keen Software House would like to take this opportunity to recognize the top 3 miners.
*In third place we have "D4rkFr4g" at 8,519, beating "TheVillageIdiot" to third place by only *three* points!

*"raidersgun" takes a firm position in second place with 11,240!

*And in first place, standing victorious is "Nekora" with an astonishing and impressive twenty-six thousand forty points (26,040)!

A pat on the back, and perhaps a tissue, for each of you brave souls!
