Spaceminers Online Space Empire Building Game new round starting

I'll be honest, I don't know anything about this game.  SpaceMiners looks very interesting, but I haven't given it a whirl yet... I'm such a fantastic journalist, ya know?  However, these guys sent me news that piqued my interest, so maybe it will do the same for you:

The latest round - round 17 - of Spaceminers the fantastic empire building game set in space has opened signups!

Ticks of 30 minutes are due to start on 11th August in a game that allows you to take over the unverise with your amazing fleets or simply become crushed by your enemy.

With a great community and good solid coding, Spaceminers is the ultimate strategy, team working and adrenaline pumping Space game. Come check us out and you'll never turn back
