Miner Wars – Get Ready For Some… Hm. Mining?
Not too sure if any of you have ever bothered to take a glance at Keen Software House’s new game Miner Wars for the PC and Xbox 360, but for those of you who are unfamiliar or just never gave a shit about the game, I’ll continue on and give you a brief synopsis of what the game’s about. Miner Wars is an underground and space shooter mixed in combination of a single player campaign and an MMO. And here comes the “fun” part…
As the player, you operate a mining ship in an open world asteroid belt um… area. You dig tunnels, harvest ore, travel the solar system and fight your enemies to discover mysterious alien secrets. We’ve included a video that will probably give you as much interest as a monkey’s toe nail. You can check the video out after the jump.
The story in Miner Wars will introduce players to all sorts of missions: rescue, base defense, exploration, search and destroy, and, best of all, harvesting. Someone in that development team had a relative who worked in coal mines to come up with a concept like this. Not saying the game sucks (as I’ve never played it), but it will likely peak the interests of… Jesus… I don’t know. Miner Wars will be available on both Windows and Xbox Live Arcade. Next up, a game about a garbage man who’s out seeking revenge against those who aren’t fond of recycling. And the secret? Recycling doesn’t exist.
