Ty and R00k’s ABSOLUTELY OUTRAGEOUS Update!

Ty and R00k (Jonny) bring forth to you a Murder Miners 1 update from the depths of their hearts:

  • Zombie Acid Vomit Attack! Zombies can now projectile vomit to create an acid pool on the ground for area prevention or to execute satisfying kill shots on miners.

  • Zombie Regurgitating! Sharing is caring, and what better way to care for your fellow zombies than by regurgitating up some sweet nourishment for them to level up on?

  • Vile Wind Attack! In the interests of maturity, we decided to tone down our inner 12 year old and include a more measured, practical ability: The “wind” will travel to wherever the cursor is pointing when activated and serves primarily as a smoke grenade and secondarily for area prevention. They say if you listen to the wind as it passes (hehehe) you can hear the souls of devoured miners softly crying out in disgust.

  • We’ve also added a text popup urging hosts to not abuse their banning authority, keeping it mainly for cheaters, spammers, and other extremely loathsome individuals.

  • Some miscellaneous changes like the Miner Gun defaulting to blaster.

With the zombies getting so much more powerful, how can the Murder Miners even hope to survive?

Stay tuned…

About This Game

***The split-screen mode shown in the trailer is only on the Xbox version***

Murder Miners is the #1 rated Xbox Live Indie Game. We still host community playdates every Wednesday at 6PM Central. Join the Murder Miners Steam group to be notified of the weekly playdate. We'll also notify you when the sequel, Murder Miners X, is released on Steam Early Access.

Halo-inspired core gameplay

3-shot-kill pistol included, with new additions such as wall-jumping, unlimited sprint, multi-directional dashing, alt-fire modes, and the ability to choose any weapon at spawn.

Unique Infection mode

One player starts as a zombie with the goal of infecting the other players until they've all turned over to the zombie army. The humans can use the Minergun to build forts, while the zombies can dig through walls and use their tentacle grab to reach higher places or pull players toward them. Unique to our game is the ability to feast on player corpses to level up your zombie. You can play this mode with up to 30 players. We'll usually have a full 30 player lobby in our weekly JForce play date. Come join us! It's a very intense experience when you're the last man standing and you have a whole swarm of player-controlled zombies coming after you.

Online co-op map making + completely destructible maps

The Minergun makes map-creation easy and fun. Almost every popular map you can think of has been remade by our community, and you can share them via Steam Workshop.
