Keen Software has revealed that their game Miner Wars 2081 is now available worldwide and considering the amount of press releases I have covered, it is kind of a happy thing for me as well!
It is a 6DOF–six degrees of freedom– space shooter set in the year 2081 (duh). You can operate a mining ship and have a destructible and open-world environment to play with.
“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.
The game runs on the company’s proprietary engine called VRAGE, and it is one of the reasons why the game has a fully destructible environment. The game is set in an open world area which contains the whole Solar System.
The story revolves over two brothers, Marcus and Apollo Rainier, who are “trying to uncover what they expect to be a groundbreaking discovery leading to ancient times.”
“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.
