  1. I thought for just the tiniest of split seconds that Miner Wars 2081 was an updated version of Miner 2049er. Unless the screen shots are seriously misrepresentative of the actual game, this does not appear to be so.

    1. Wow, I barely remember that one, but I do. :) Sadly no, not an upgrade to that. ;)
