Murder Miners X - May update

Hey murderers, sorry again for the lack of updates on Murder Miners X (the sequel to Murder Miners). Jonny's had some big technical hurdles to get past while developing this game so he hasn't been as productive lately, but updates should start to get more frequent once he gets back to programming the more fun and exciting features. One of the things that took him awhile to get right was our networking solution, Bolt (now called Photon Bolt after the buyout). This is the best networking engine you can purchase for Unity. It means we should basically have AAA-quality networking.

Another thing that's been taking a lot of time is perfecting our animation system, trying to get aiming/rotating, strafing, etc. to work properly (unlike in MM1, where aiming straight up doesn't look correct from 3rd-person view, and doing a 180 turn just rotates the whole player around without leg movement, and strafing/backward walking animations don't exist). This has been pretty complicated, but we'll show this off in our next sneak peek video.

In the meantime, here's some progress on a new weapon that will be in the game.

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.

Everything I love about classic FPS titles, and much more. Server hosting is easy, great gameplay, great design, and the use of inspiration is beautiful. This game is a lot of fun for hours, and great for parties. 9.5/10

Great indie product that would be definitely on my recommendation list if it wasn't completely dead. Lots of fun game modes and controls great, runs well, classic Halo action but with parkour and some extra mechanics. But as of now, don't buy. You won't find anyone to play with unless you bring your own friends.

Review has been changed because the devs are humble and made a great product that I shouldn't be bashing just because there's nobody to play against sometimes. I have noticed the community hosted events go off often but have never been able to join them since they always happen while I'm working or playing another game. The game is great and it's dirt cheap. Just ♥♥♥♥ing buy it and wait til they host community events and then go have a blast.

This game is fun with or without friends, you can kill eachother in a deathmatch on tons of community made and developer made maps, or survive with or without a team from zombies on loads of maps to choose from in this game. tons of weapons to use and play around with.

Great game loads of modes and good guns, but hardly any players anymore. When I first played almost a year ago there were more servers up. I encourage people to buy this game and host servers.

Don't let my few hours total on this game fool you, I played this alot on Xbox back then, when I found it on steam I was like ♥♥♥♥ YEAH. Awesome price for such a great game with great potential. The developer seems pretty chill and active as well. Bought 4 copies to share with my friends.

Before buying this amazing game, you must understand and agree to the following:
-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.
