While chatting on the Metal Drift IRC (which you should totally check out!), I was linked to an upcoming game entitled Miner Wars. It's similar to EVE Online, where the gameplay takes place in space, but if differs in the fact that Miner Wars also adds in the FPS perspective.
You may be wondering why I'm posting this. Well, Miner Wars is being made by an indie company called Keen Software House. After testing Metal Drift and seeing its release onto Steam, I know how hard it is for indie companies to get their game known and develop and decent playerbase (which, sadly, Metal Drift has not yet obtained). So, by posting this, I'm hoping to get Miner Wars some recognition before it goes into beta.
I sincerely hope that you will follow the link to the Miner Wars site and check out what looks to be an epic game made by a fantastic group of indie devs.
