Default IGF Awards!

News Release For Immediate Release


Weird Worlds' Awesome Aural Achievement!
Digital Eel Snags The IGF 2006 Innovation In Audio Award!


Hampstead, NC, 24 March 2005

On Wednesday, March 22nd, in San Jose, California, the Seventh Annual Independent
Games Festival awards were presented. Digital Eel's Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite
Space had been nominated in three categories: the Seumas McNally Grand Prize,
Innovation in Audio, and the Audience Award. Among all three categories was an
amazing array of talent and superb games.

Digital Eel snagged the Innovation in Audio award, a category they're quite familiar with
as they also won the Innovation in Audio award in 2004 for their title, Dr. Blob's
Organism. Shrapnel Games would like to congratulate Digital Eel (the fine folks of Eel
consisting of Rich Carlson, Iikka Keränen, and Bill "Phosphorus" Sears) on this most
excellent achievement! Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is very deserving of this
honor, and we're quite pleased to see it recognized. Be sure to catch Spike TV's weekly
gaming show, GameHead, for coverage of the IGF 2006 awards and to see the Eel on the
tube April 7th! (Check your local cable listing for time and channel.)

Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is published by Shrapnel Games and is available
either as a download or a physical copy shipped directly to your door. If you want to find
out exactly why Weird Worlds is one of the most-talked about games of recent times
there's no better place than to start with the demo, which can be found here:

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

The demo allows players to play a full ten-year pirate mission (in the full retail game you
can choose between science, pirate, and military missions for your career, each one
pursuing different goals) on a small map. While there is much more to see in the full
game the demo is a great sampling, and a heck of a lot of fun by itself. Try it today!

Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space the full, retail game is mixture of turn-based
strategy, role-playing elements, real-time tactical battles, and lots of surprises. Captains
exploring the mysterious Sector Prime will encounter a dizzying array of aliens (both
friend, foe, and in between), artifacts, environmental mysteries, followers, swap meets,
rogues, and much, much more. Every game is different, and with the ease of modding
Weird Worlds, gamers can easily continue to experience new adventures years down the
starlane.
