Another day, another shameless attempt to get more people in on the awesomeness that is Infiniminer. At least I have a good excuse today: It's Friday! That means that it's time to rock some multiplayer with your fellow Dtoiders, so why not try out something new while you're waiting for the usual games to pick up steam?
In case you didn't catch my last blog
, Infiniminer is a free PC game for Windows that can be downloaded here
, along with the runtime packages required to play it and the Hamachi networking software that will allow you to play online with the rest of the Destructoid Army. Infiniminer is all about digging and building in a giant pixel-y 3D world full of dirt, gold, and lava. It may not look like much, but let me assure you: It's pretty damn fun.
How to get online with Infiniminer:
1. Install Infiniminer v1.5
, the XNA 3.0 Runtime
, and the .NET 2.0 Runtime
(if you haven't already).
2. Install Hamachi
and join the network dtoid-mines
with the password alsococks
3. Edit your Infiniminer client configuration file (client.config.txt
) with your preferred settings (player name, screen resolution, look inversion, etc).
4. Start up Infiniminer and direct connect to my Hamachi IP Address: 188.8.131.52
5. Mine like there's no tomorrow!
Infiniminer is a load of fun and I hope to see some of you give it a shot. I'll keep the server up for the rest of the night, so feel free to pop in whenever you've got some free time. Also, I have the ability to save maps, so please let me know if you want to hang on to an awesome creation you made within the game.
I'll see you in the mines!
