Windows And Mac Patches Now Available!
Hampstead, NC, 01 October 2007
Shrapnel Games and the greatest anguilliformes ever to grace the computer world, Digital
Eel, would like to call your attention to a shiny pair of patches now available for
download, still with that fresh-from-the-factory new patch smell! Rolling out today for
your gaming pleasure is version 1.22 of the award winning, critically acclaimed, and
much beloved Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space. And yes Mac owners, one of
those patches is for you!
The version 1.22 Windows patch is as follows:
* Added a new sound to Primordius fighters launching (NEW)
* Mods load default game high scores/settings when first run (FIX)
* Extra space in soundfx.ini (FIX)
The version 1.22 Mac OS X patch includes:
* Everything just mentioned in the Windows patch.
* Everything in the Windows version 1.2 and 1.21 patches!**
**The PC 1.2 and 1.21 patches were released last December and included an amazing list
of really cool additions like another main quest with a new race, a new Urluquai starship,
missile trails sure to transfix you in awe of their visual magnificence, and much, much
more. Unfortunately the Mac coding was delayed. You'll find a comprehensive list of
the changes in the Mac patch on the download page.
Applying the patch is easier than shooting wamp rats in your T-16. Just download, run,
and you're done! The patch works for both the boxed version and the download. You
can find the patch at the following location, along with the complete list of changes:
If you don't own Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space you probably shouldn't
download the patch, but we can't stop you. You will find that on the very same page as
the patch is the demo download. We recommend downloading that instead. The demo
lets you play as a space pirate (insert your own pirate joke) on a ten year mission to do
piratey stuff amongst the stAAARRRS. Get it? StAAARRRS?
We'd be remiss if we didn't also remind you that soon you will be able to experience the
Weird Worlds universe in action-packed cardboard!
Eat Electric Death! is the upcoming exciting board game of tactical Weird Worlds
starship combat featuring gorgeous artwork, a rich scenario selection, and engaging
gameplay. Command vessels of the Terrans, Garthans, Tan Ru, Zorg, Urluquai, Klakar,
or the formidable Yellow Kawangi, all with their own unique characteristics. Play hide
and seek amongst asteroid fields, unleash secret weapon cards, and beware the dread
'Reactor Blows' damage chit! Plenty of chrome (point defense systems, wormholes,
ramming, and more) is included without bogging down gameplay.
As you would expect from the folks who allow you to discover a universe in under
twenty minutes, Eat Electric Death! plays fast, with even the largest scenarios taking
under an hour to game. Complete an entire campaign for Sector Prime in a night! Create
your own scenarios and share them with your friends.
