"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 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!
