Default Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite Space Is Complete

News Release For Immediate Release


It's Gold, Jim!
Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite Space Is Complete!


Hampstead, NC, 13 October 2005

The other night the staff of Shrapnel was enjoying a night under the summer sky, sipping
a wonderfully robust cognac while discussing whether, in a fight to the death, if a rabid
platypus suffering from narcolepsy could beat a drunk Carrot Top, when something fell
from the bejeweled heavens in a blaze of light. Crashing into the ground the mysterious
object left a smoking crater that we cautiously approached. Was it a meteor? The
remains of the Monolith as it burned up in orbit?

Closer to the pit we could make out a tiny saucer, and from that tiny saucer a tiny figure
emerged. Large of skull, gray of skin, the small humanoid was coughing up its tiny lungs
onto its tiny, shiny suit. With one last ragged breath it stretched its hand out, holding a
CD. Its universal translator squawked out, "Greetings from Digital Eel. It seems I
miscalculated the gravitational effects of your planet when I programmed my ship to
land. I came to bring you this."

The hand wavered as we took the CD from it. Mission accomplished, the poor little guy
wheezed and keeled over. The neighbor's dog ate him. He seemed rather chewy.

Back to the CD.in our hands, delivered straight from the aliens themselves, was the
gold candidate for Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite Space!! We have gold, Houston!!

Shrapnel Games is extremely excited to announce that Seattle-based Digital Eel has just
completed their next great game, Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite Space. Now golden,
the next stop is the Shrapnel production facilities, and from there onwards to conquer the
known universe!

Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite Space is the staggeringly brilliant follow-up game to
the original, epic coffee-break game of space exploration, Strange Adventures In Infinite
Space. Designed for Windows, the sequel is everything you enjoyed about the first
game, along with a whole parsec or two of new stuff guaranteed to make even a Vulcan
get excited. We're talking gorgeous new graphics, amazing new encounters, even more
challenging combat, and more secrets than the strange guy down the hall who always
wears that stained raincoat.

But what if you never played the first game? Shame on you. But here's what you can
expect.

Imagine it's the future and you're the captain of your own starship (which is one of three
possible designs). Imagine now that you could become rich and famous by taking said
starship out and plying the unknown space lanes of the infinite universe. The catch is
that you only have a limited amount of time. So you do just that-explore the universe--
and along the way you discover strange new lifeforms, gather unique artifacts from
previously uncharted worlds, and battle fiends from beyond time and space. And you do
all of this in under thirty minutes. And never even double-click once.

Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite Space is an endlessly replayable game that boasts
addictive gameplay, ease of play, friendly modability, and a wealth of discovery, all
playable on your hectic schedule. And it's only $24.95. So what are you waiting for?
Make the jump to lightspeed and head over to the Gamers Front and grab yourself a copy:
www.gamersfront.com/cgi-bin/store/category.cgi?item=42210&type=store . When it
ships you'll be one of the first ones to have it!

Stay tuned for the official announcement for when Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite
Space ships, and in the meantime please stop by www.shrapnelgames.com and check out
all our games.

What was the result? Who would win: the platypus or Carrot Top?
