It is a perfect place for mining. Varied topography and beautiful scenery encourages for digging.

One day, The Mine - owner of all mines on the planet, announced competition for the best mining team. Winner will receive the first prize - one of the richest mines on the planet!

It may take a while till it's released. I wish It was released somewhere else and keys were provided when it's greenlit.

@ Concedo If game would be faster, it will be hard to manage all these 5 miners. It will be also quite easy to lost them all pretty quickly. I think that The Miners and Motherload are two different games.

Not bad. Feels a bit slow-ish. Why not make it faster paced, sort of like Motherload.

I loved (and still love to play) Diggers and I'm voting yes for this game. The Miners looks great.!
