Development

On August 30, 2012 Keen Software House announced support for the Oculus Rift in their forum [1]. On March 14, 2013 it was announced [2] that full game and engine source code has been released.

In March 2013 Marek Rosa (CEO of Keen Software House) said in the Oculus Rift forum thread that they didn't receive their Oculus Rift yet and that anyone could try to integrate Rift support since the source code was available.

On May 24, 2013 Marek Rosa published the postmortem of the game [3] where he said that the Miner Wars 2081 project was finished and that the team was working on a new project.
