Miner Wars– a video game featuring: 6DOF, Fully Destructible Environment, Single Player Story&MMO


London, UK, February 25, 2010– Keen Software House&Miner Wars development team releases a new video of their current alpha build.

This Video features the current cockpit, basic hud, basic targeting and a rear view from the ship. It also features player making a tunnel and reaching an area in the asteroid where there is ice.

Notice that the fragments of the broken astetoids also interact with the ship. Also if you hit the fragment with a rocket then it exlodes. Our thinking here is that players have to be careful when firing rockets in the tunnels.

This is first of the series of videos of gameplay features that we will be publishing roughly every week. The aim is to show you how our game is progressing and how close we actually are to the single-player beta release of our game.

The video can be downloaded directly from: http://www.minerwars.com/Downloads.aspx please right-click on download button and choose save as.

You can also find thevideo on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aruyeiqoj4E&feature=player_embedded

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.
