Miner Wars Arena - Available on Steam, Desura, GameStop and GamersGate

Prague, Czech Republic, August 29 th– Keen Software House is pleased to announce the release of super-secret project: Miner Wars Arena,“little brother” to Miner Wars 2081.

I am delighted to announce the release of Miner Wars Arena, our new fast-paced arcade game inspired by the PC gaming classic, Tunneler.? It features a state-of-the-art top-down view, 2.5D gameplay in a fully destructible environment, and on the edge split-screen out of the box. It’s a total blast!?

You really need to try it: http://arena.minerwars.com

Miner Wars Arena was a bit of a surprise to everyone. It wasn’t planned at first. But I was tempted by an idea of making a little brother to the six-degrees-of-freedom Miner Wars 2081. I figured that 2.5D top-down gameplay would be easier for players to understand and orient themselves within.

In the end we decided it would be best to create two completely separate games: 2081 and Arena. I believe this was the right decision, because now we have the best of both worlds.

When I sent the prototype of Miner Wars Arena to our investors, however, they were a little upset with me. Why? Because they didn’t get any work done that day!? They spent the whole day playing our game! That’s how addictive it is...

You must see for yourself!? This game will bring you to your roots!? Even if you're under the age of 18, and don't really have video game roots that go far enough to feel it will bring you to your roots, that's how rooted you'll feel!? Miner Wars Arena is available for both Windows and Mac, but perhaps if people nagged us about it we might figure a way to put it on your phone.?

Warning: You might get bad grades at school over it... you might abandon your old friend solitaire... and please remember to fed your pets!

It’s Pirateable generously DRM-free and it’s only $9.99!
