"A cute little game with a lot of potential. Play hide & seek, survive waves of zombies, build forts. This game has it all. Minecraft meets Halo."

Murder Miners X - Sneak Peek 2

Nothing shown in this video is finished. It's still very early. A lot of networking / 'under the hood' type stuff has been worked on in the past couple of months. We just got custom armor colors in. You'll be able to change two colors on each armor piece instead of one, plus we plan to have custom user-made skins available for both armor and weapons. We should have something for you to play on PC this summer!

About This Game

Murder Miners is the #1 rated Xbox Live Indie Game. After a year of updating the game on Xbox and several months of work porting it to PC, we're finally ready for Steam.

*The game currently does not have split-screen play as shown in the trailer (that's in the Xbox version). We may add split-screen in an update.*

Halo-inspired core gameplay

3-shot-kill pistol included, with new additions such as wall-jumping, unlimited sprint, multi-directional dashing and alt-fire modes.

Unique Infection mode

One player starts as a zombie, hunting down the miners one by one, turning them into zombie teammates. Miners 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 miners toward them. Unique to our game is the ability to feast on miner corpses to level up your zombie attributes.

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.

Bought 3 Copies, at $0.97 each, and we had fun all night. Runs smooth, Playes well. Cheaper than Arcade games I played as a kid, that lasted for 2 minutes per 4 Quaters.

That's really all you need to know.

1.) It's LEGIT: The game runs well, and the controlls are TIGHT. This is not crap. It's a real game.

2.) It's simple. Start it up, choose a mode, jump in.

3.) Online works fine. Not many players, but, we had no problem playing with people all night.

4.) It's a buck. Even if we never play it again (we will), it was worth the night of fun we had.

5.) It's not "Like Halo". Don't know what all that is about. But, it does play like a solid FPS.

-You will be kicked if you play well.
-You will be allowed to stay if you're a girl.
-Your friends will be kicked for "soliciting prostitution." (actual quote).
-Being better than the host is a direct front to the united states of america and will be assessed with a ban.
-Users must agree to use at least one middle school insult in every chat message.
-You must be/act 12 or younger.

You are probably looking at the graphics and name of this game, and are extremely skeptical. Trust me, I was too. However, hidden underneath the minecraft graphics and halo character models, is actually a very solid, addicting, fun FPS. The gunplay and movement are fairly similar to halo, but with the addition of a mining gun (can place/destroy blocks), and a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ grappling hook (like in just cause 2). Mix in a gigantic map selection and some hilarious potential game settings (turbo fire alone is rib-crushingly funny for a good 20 minutes), and you have a game that's worth FAR more than the 2 dollar price tag.
The only major downside I would like to point out is the lack of players online at off-peak times. Only a couple of games will be up at a time if you aren't playing during the evening on a weekend. Would recommend getting a couple of friends to buy, or gifting a 4-pack to them.
Spread the word! Let's get some more people playing this super fun game!

HEY AVERAGE STEAM SHOPPER!!

This game you see... Murder Miners? Its a pretty fun game

With 2 parts Halo and 1 part Zombie Survival with just a dash of Mine Craft, you get this little miracle!
What makes this game super fun and addicting is that, you are not on a race for RANKS and NEW ARMOR, Giving it the fun gaming feeling you should get when playing a FPS! You do not have ranks and have every weapon available! (Except if the Host disables it) You have the same power and abilities as everyone else does! You are able to customize your player with Halo-Like Helmets and a decent size color list with making about every body-part a different color!

You are able to create your own maps with a minecraft ease OR quickly join in and rekt havoc into a DEATHMATCH, TEAM DEATHMATCH, and CFT! Dont even get me started about Infection or Zombie survival! 2 DIFFERENT but similar game-type where you are able to fend off endless hordes of zombies-things on ANY type of map, or join the ranks of the undead and destroy the lives of many who cry under the nearest desk! (BTW your able to disguise your selves as blocks shhhh ;P )

Every Wednesday, a person from the Developers itself hosts a game that lasts from 6 pm to 7pm (Central) with on average 15 to 20 players at once!

If your looking for a fun and easy FPS without the hassle of worrying about what your rank is...then this game is the one you want! Even buy 4 copies at once to give it to your friends, so your able to enjoy a fun and spooky time with them (Zombie Survival gets pretty spooky!)

I Highly recommend this Fun and Spooky Game! For only $1.99, your getting it no better anywhere else! (except when its on sale for $ .99)

I've only played about 5 hours, and I'm in love with this game, as with 3089.
Amazing gameplay.
Horrific undead.
Extreme competiveness.
LOTS OF CUSTOMIZATION.

It's a cheap game, so I'd reccomend buying it. Definitely.

It's the most fun of the block based shooters on steam but the population is low a lot of the time.

If Minecraft and Halo were combined, this would be it. Everything feels right about this game. The charming outdated looking graphics combined with the space setting. And the gunplay is as smooth as it gets. No lag and very slight FPS drops, this game deserves a gold medal.

Great game got it for 0.99 and do not regret it. Very fun to play with friends in fact a friend recommended this to me. The game is pretty balanced and is a combination of Halo and minecraft although there is very little minecraft elements in here. The building mechanincs through the miner gun is very fun but it'll take sometime to get used to it. I'd buy it to play it with friends the sheer competitive nature of the game online will probably not hold u long enough.
