Default Weird Worlds Now Purchasable As A Download!

News Release For Immediate Release


Bringing The Weird Direct To Your Computer!


Hampstead, NC, 29 November 2005


Oh, those crazy larbringians from Primus Seven! It seems that they've been upset that
the new hit sci-fi game from Digital Eel, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, has
only been available as a physical product. Apparently USPS won't ship beyond our
known galaxy (and truth be told, they won't even ship to outer space.attempts at
launching a truck into space were quite problematic, and once a successful launch was
made it was quickly learned that the trucks provide no protection against explosive
decompression) and so the larbringians have threatened galactic destruction on a scale not
seen since the rampaging space monster from Gamma Fifteen! Here at Shrapnel Games,
publishers of Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, we do our best to avoid galactic
destruction and so we're proud to offer Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space for
purchase as a digital download.

That's right, now you can choose between the physical copy, shipped right to your door
in a high-quality DVD case, or you may purchase the game as an electronic download,
transferred lickety-split to your hard drive. Like things that you can reach out and touch?
Go for the physical copy. Trapped in Antarctica, studying how humanity was a big
cosmic mistake of the Old Ones? Well, you may want to grab the downloadable copy.

Either version provides you with the same fast-playing, highly addictive single-player
game that folks around the world are falling in love with. Choose from three different
mission types and explore the uncharted space realms of Sector Prime in ten, twenty, or
thirty year tours of duty. Discover a catalog of items to enhance your ship with, gather
new lifeforms, explore a multitude of worlds, battle exotic aliens, and face numerous
surprises, all in under thirty Earth minutes! With each adventure created anew, space
truly is infinite. And if you ever need a break from meeting and greeting aliens, you can
fire up the battle simulator found in Weird Worlds and skip everything but the plasma
and vortex destruction in deep space!

Already Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space has scored a 9.3 amongst the readers of
Gamespot, and Out of Eight says, ".Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is a great
space strategy semi-4x game, especially good as a "quick" game to play, when you have
15 minutes to spare before some other non-computer activity (perish the thought!), and
should not be overshadowed by more heavily hyped, larger budget games." See what all
the buzz is about by downloading the demo of Weird Worlds, featuring a full-blown
pirate mission, here:

www.shrapnelgames.com/digital_eel/weird_worlds/6.htm

When you're ready to experience the full game in all its glory, stop by the Shrapnel
Games e-store, the Gamers Front at www.gamersfront.com, and snag either the physical
copy or the download version!

In keeping with my previous rant, I will buy this game before the week is out. Any chance of getting LoL the same way? I pretty much promised HiroAntagonist the same thing

Thanks for that! Would hate to respond to customer demand to find no one meant what they said! We are looking seriously at adding Land of Legends to our list of downloadable products, but the project is not yet at a stage where we can make any guarantees. We'll keep you posted. Meanwhile, thank you for your suggestions and support.
