About This Game

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.

*Please note that I am reviewing both THE GAME and everything INVOLVED. Also, for some reason, Steam didnt register some of my playtime*

So here I was, when a friend gave me a key for a steam game. I didnt know what to expect, but after seeing some backlash, I tested it myself.
It is great. It really is. Unfortunately, I would ONLY recommend it if you can play with friends.

+Yes, its Minecraft-like aestetic, but nobody said you cant do it. The game has some interesting ideas with this destructable enviorments, as you can sneak and attack your foes when destruction is allowed. Also Graphics < Gameplay

+Runs very well on the 2 pc's I tested it.

+Gameplay is simple, but damn, its fun! From a guy who loves old-school FPS, this is mah jam. Smooth controls for the most part, guns that , while sorta lacking, feel powerful, and outstanding lack of lag. This is like a modern version of DOOM / Quake Arena !

+The Developer hosts a public match every Wednesday! I suppose its super fun and problem free. Lots of fun with friends, but ONLY with friends

+Developer ,side note, is as far as I can tell, very, VERY friendly and open to everyone's complains and advice, a + for that!

+Many game modes, (lame names tho) Theres something for everyone to enjoy, from a zombie survival to absolute carnage deathmatch

+Fully customize the look of your avatar! Its a rather useless addition, but welcome and charming in its own right


So, this Murder Miners thing is cool. Gameplay is, while uninspired, great. But why I dont reccomend unless you got friends?

Yep

Sadly, the high amount of game keys given away, the public servers are troll/hacker/children galore.

-Hackers roam freely. Urgently needs a method to report these t**ts
-Holy sh**e , these kids are horribly disgusting. My experience with these folks feels like an incentive advertisement to use anticonseptives! :toneh:
-DONT GO PUBLIC FOR THE LOVE OF GOD
-Game is also, despite playable and fun, heavily unoriginal, can put off some people.
-Some people can intentionally mess the server up, or cause a ♥♥♥♥♥torm that ruins the entire server
-People make public servers and expect nobody to join. They screamed and insulted me, and then kicked me 3/4 of the times I joined!

So I DO RECCOMEND BUT OLY IF YOU PLAY ON THE DEV MATCH OR WITH FRIENDS IN A PRIVATE SERVER
If not, avoid.

Sadly, this game does not have:

- Anti-hack security.
- A good community.
- Original concepts (Vehicles are original, but weapon mechanics are the same ones from Halo CE and Halo 2)
- Good framework response.
- Better...names. (Seriously, putting "murder" in every gamemode is not promising)


I'm not stopping you. Buy it if you want.
You'll get surprised with the load of bullcrap it has inside.

Wrapping this thing up: Murder Miners is a copy paste of Halo CE and Halo 2 mechanics with few original concepts and lacking complexity.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS GAME. It's a dead game. Check games on steamcharts before purchasing especially ones like this that are made for multiplayer.

I've played Murder Miners a bit more and I am surprised. I got onto a server and the community wasn't that bad, The game is one of those, so bad that it's cute and you have to give the devs credit for creating a game with a decent community.
P.S they host servers every Wednesday.
