About the 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 the miners to infect them and bring them to team zombie. 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, then feast upon their corpse to level up abilities.

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. Share your maps via Steam Workshop.

Get a blender. No, not that blender. A cool one, with holographic lights or something. I don't know man, duct tape Christmas ornaments to it. There you go. Now go grab your Halo collection. Yes, all of them. No wait, put Halo 4 back. There you go. Now dump 'em all in the blender. Okay, grab Minecraft. What? No, that's Terraria. Grab Minecraft. Okay, that's Yogscast Adventures, and that game doesn't even exist. Grab. Minecraft. Okay good, now throw that into the blender. Turn it on. No, no stop fiddling with the buttons. On. Turn on. Yes, it's plugged in, turn it on! It's on? Okay, good. Let that sit for a minute. Mmm, tasty right? Grab a glass. A... plastic cup? What is this garbage? I said glass, man. Glass. Okay, that's a bowl, and now you're just screwing with me. Thank you, a glass. Pour the holy combination of Halo and Minecraft into that glass. Okay, well, you spilled some on your shirt, but hey, we all make mistakes. Go to your computer. Open the disc tray. Okay, that's a waffle maker, not a disc tray. Is the disc tray open? Okay, put the cup in it. See? It's like a cup holder. Close the disc tray. Is it working? Okay then, have fun!

I've been playing MM since it was first released on the Xbox 360, and man this game has come a long way! First off, what you need to know is that this game is a multiplayer FPS. It's not a "mining" or "survival sandbox" game by any means. You're shooting other players in a competitive enviornment. The only similarity this game has to minecraft (and I honestly dislike that it can even be compared to minecraft) is that you build the maps with blocks. That's it. Secondly, you need to know that this game moves and shoots exactly like a Halo game, with the exception that you can do some wall kicks and other moves like that. If there were one game to compare it to, it'd be Halo. Definitely not Minecraft. Anyways, the last thing you should know is that this game still needs more polish in the graphics and presentation departments. Some of the textures aren't that great, there's no lighting to speak of, and the menus are pretty bland. However, I was able to overlook those shortcomings when I experienced how well the game plays. You'll probably be able to do the same! I'd be sure to hop on this game quickly, because Jforce plans to add a lot to it. These devs have a lot of good ideas for the game. Well, that's all I've got.

Best Xbox Indie game out, will update review when fully released. Lets just say its worth every penny.


Murder Miners. Originally launched back on the Xbox Live Indie Marketplace in 2012, this title takes the best aspects of the FPS Halo (In particular, Halo: Combat Evolved) and shoves it into a Voxel Battleground, reminiscent of Minecraft.

The game just got out of a closed beta, and in it's current state is pretty much the ultimate edition of the game. For $5 (Currently $4) you get access to hundreds of maps pre-made by JForce and the community, with plenty of your favorites (I'm talking maps like Blood Gulch, pretty much every Halo map, and even Unreal Tournament 2004 maps). You do have the ability to make your own maps, with a pretty in depth map editor comapred to other titles in the genre.

Gameplay is where Murder Miners shines. The developers have fine tuned this monster to Quake 3 levels of responsiveness, leaving you with tight, fast controls. Of course, you can always lower it to suit your playstyle; Want to play like your playing Halo? Drop it down to 4. Minecraft? 3. The gunplay is great. You'll have access to 6 weapons; A Halo Battle Rifle, 3 Shot Magnum, Sniper, Energy Sword (Looks like a medieval sword), Shotgun, Machine Gun, and a Hookshot (Grappling hook). These pretty much play like you'd expect them to, and you end up with some sweet ♥♥♥ montage clips when using the grapple hook.

The game isn't all running around though. Take to the skies in a Helicopter style vehicle and reign death from above with heavy missles. Take 2 friends up with you to give some additional firepower from above. Or perhaps you're after a burst of speed? No problem, grab a hoverbike and get to work.

One of the BEST features of Murder Miners is the Infection Game Mode. Zombies versus Humans. The maps that you get default with this game for Infection are awesomely amazing, such as burnt out cities, military bases, all giving that erry vibe that an enemy isn't too far away. 30 people in an infection game on a big map equals lots o' fun. Plus, if you're a lonely person, you can have zombie AI bots! There's fun for everyone here!

The amount of possibilities in Murder Miners are pretty much endless, and if you're a fan of Halo you'll be drooling from nostalgia after playing this.

This game is the kind of shooter I've been waiting years for. It takes me back to a time where games remembered how to be fun, not tedious grind fests, or focused on ranks, or aesthetically unpleasing and overly serious.

This game has a huge variety of gamemodes that can be interchanged with one another, as lobbies are hugely customiseable. The gunplay feels like an updated Halo CE with the addition of optional swords, mining/building guns, and grappling hooks. There is a huge variety of levels in the game by default but players may choose to create their own maps, and many popular community maps have been imported over from the Xbox 360 version of the game so you will have no trouble finding remakes and tributes to your favourite games, along with creative maps that take advantage of the customiseable game modes such as parkour and chase maps.

Whether you are a casual player looking for something to not take seriously, a competitive player, or just someone looking for a good co-operative experience with friends, this game is perfect for you. At $5, it's a ♥♥♥♥ing steal.

Buy it.

Long-time Halo fans will absolutely enjoy this game.
It's like Halo CE but with Minecraft inspired blocks & zombies.
If you haven't play this game yet, your missing out on a hidden gem.

My Rating: 10/10

Note: The review will be expended in depth when the game goes on live.
