Default Weird Worlds Mac Attack!

News Release For Immediate Release


Weird Worlds Mac Attack!
Weird Worlds Now Beaming Onto Mac Systems!


Hampstead, NC, 26 April 2006

Developer Digital Eel and publisher Shrapnel Games are very excited to announce that
the galaxy's greatest thirty-minute space opera, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space,
is now available for the Mac! That's right, the same exciting game that thrilled PC
owners can now be played on the Mac. This is also a true port, and not simply a
universal binary version of the game, although plans are in the work for that.

The Mac version of Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is currently purchasable as a
digital download, although it will be available in the near future on a hybrid Mac/Win
CD, for those who prefer to bask in the odors of newly pressed CDs. Head on over to the
Shrapnel e-store, the Gamers Front, to snag your Mac download:

www.gamersfront.com/xcart/home.php

The Mac port of Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space allows Mac users to experience
the very same award-winning gameplay that Win users have been enjoying. Explore the
infinite possibilities of Sector Prime for scientific knowledge, a military show of force, or
a healthy dose of space rum and alien parrots with a crew of cutthroat pirates. Enjoy a
short ten year mission, or try your luck at surviving the hard vacuum for a full thirty years
(in gameplay that is; in the real world expect your missions to last an average of twenty
minutes).

Exploration is done in a leisurely, turn-based, one-click mode. Strange encounters in
outer space or planet-side are common, ranging from the benign to the malevolent to the
just plain wacky. Sometimes it's even a wacky malevolent encounter. Those tend to not
end well for your crew.

You're also not the only starship zooming around in Sector Prime. You may encounter a
friendly trader, a lost fighter pilot, or other alien vessels. And let's face it, most alien
races are rather angry, and they like to take their anger out on humans by blowing them
up, enslaving their women, and probe parties. Weird Worlds continues this fine tradition
of human-hating aliens bent on your destruction.

In combat the action unfolds in real-time, as the darkness of space is seared with beams,
rays, missiles, projectiles, and other implements of destruction, all in glorious Destructo-
vision. Gamers can ever practice their battle skills in a separate combat simulator.

And just when you think you've seen it all, that you've explored every single planet you
could explore, that you've encountered every single encounter, that you've fought every
single probe-happy alien vessel you could, there's more! Weird Worlds: Return to
Infinite Space is so mod friendly we often have to turn a hose on the game, just to keep
the mods apart. The Weird Worlds experience never has to halt!

For more information on Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space please visit its
gamepage at www.shrapnelgames.com/digital_eel/weird_worlds/1.htm. You'll also be
able to download a Mac demo for a sampling of the groovy game. And while there be
sure to check out all our other titles for the Mac, such as Dominions II and Dominions 3
and Salvo!.
