According to the press release this new influx of money will allow Keen Software House to "focus entirely on the development of Miner Wars, the VRAGE engine, and other projects yet to be announced." That includes hiring new team members at the company's offices in Prague.
The game itself has been sold as an alpha build for some time for 70 percent off the final version's price. However there's no word yet on when the final version of Miner Wars will be released.
