Miner Machine is the only Finnish game ever released internationally on the MSX. Astonishingly, this was done without any permission or knowledge from its developers whatsoever. The French publishing house Eaglesoft first released their own copy of the game without ever contacting the developers. Spanish developer System 4 then took the Eaglesoft release and published it with slightly altered cover art. Finally, it was featured in a compilation called "30 MSX Hits" from Premium III.

It wasn't until 2005, 17 years after the game's original release, that the developers found out about this. Neither developer ever received any royalties for their copied games.
