News Release For Immediate Release
Shrapnel Games Unveils Its Newly Upgraded e-Store!
Just In Time For Christmas The New Gamer's Front Is Now Live!
Hampstead, NC, 13 December 2005
With only twelve shopping days left until Christmas (thirteen, if you're the cheapskate
that shops for presents at the corner gas station on the way to visit the family) Shrapnel
Games is pleased to announce that your shopping worries are over! Simply stop by the
newly retooled Gamers Front, the official Shrapnel Games' e-Store and your one-stop
virtual shop to strategy gaming nirvana!
So what's new with the Gamers Front you might ask? Well, if you drop in by visiting it
, the first thing you may notice is the newly redesigned look.
Sleek, easy to navigate, with all the information you'll want to know at your fingertips.
More details on the games you know and love, with screenshots and demos a click away.
If the interface was a texture it would be rich velvet, and believe us, if society would
allow it you'd want to drape yourself in it. But the new Gamers Front, while good
looking, has much more to offer beneath the hood than graceful lines and tight handling.
New membership options allow you to earn credit towards future purchases when you
shop through Reward and Bonus Points programs. Reward Points are awarded based on
each full dollar you spend on the store, with each dollar spent equaling one Reward Point,
and for every 75 points earned you receive one dollar in discounts. The more you end up
spending, the more you can save!
Bonus Points work a little different though the net result, saving you money, is the same.
Bonus Points have a higher ratio of earning, with ten Bonus Points equaling one dollar in
discounts. Bonus Points must be converted to a gift certificate to be used, but the gift
certificate can be to yourself. Bonus Points are also awarded in various fashions, such as
purchasing a particular game for that month. They can also be awarded in a variety of
other ways. Currently, anyone who signs up for the Premium Membership (it should be
noted that your old Gamers Front account will not carry over, so old members will need
to re-sign up) earns Bonus Points totaling to a five dollar gift certificate, which again, can
be used by yourself or given to someone else. Hurry though, as this offer only lasts
Other new features of the new Gamers Front include the ability to purchase gift
certificates in whole dollar amounts, which can then either be sent via email or good ol'
fashioned snail mail. Easier payments through Paypal, and of course the Gamers Front
still features the ability to pay with a wide variety of credit cards, including Discover and
Another truly cool feature of the new store is an integrated customer support base.
Previously to access the customer support features you had to create a separate login from
your store account. Obviously this was somewhat awkward. Now your one registered
account takes care of both ordering new games and any customer support that you may
We're excited with the upgrade, and we think you will be too, so please stop by the new
Gamers Front today! Remember, if you register in December you'll receive Bonus
Points that will get you a $5.00 gift certificate, applicable immediately. Apply it towards
one of our hot new releases, like Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, Land of
Legends, or Prussia's Glory. You can even earn more Bonus Points this month by
purchasing Coliseum, The War Engine, or the Charles S. Roberts award-winning Horse
and Musket: Great Battles of the Eighteenth Century.
