While we were hoping to have released a v1.0 by now, we have been making good progress recently. The current, just-released version of Sea of Stars (Early Access) now includes the first large “quest” event that randomly occurs and throws you into a desperate struggle to save your homeworld from an extra-galactic invader. (You may get to save some other folks’ homes along the way.) Also, with the amount of content now exceeding what can fit on the starmap in one game, the mix of alien races appearing in each session is randomized to help make the game different each time you play.
We’re also very happy to announce that Henry Kropf, who recently helped us re-release Weird Worlds on Mac OS X, is now working on Sea of Stars for the Mac! If all goes well, we’ll have it running by the time the PC version comes out, and released soon afterward if not at the same time.
When there’s a nip in the air, snowflakes on your nose and you hear the sound of Santa’s sleighbells, you know it’s either time to have your head examined or time for the Steam Holiday Sale! (Thankfully, it’s the latter.)
Please note that ALL Digital Eel games are alien-tested and approved for KIDS, TEENS, ADULTS and REPTILOIDS from Bellatrix IV. Feeling festive? Who the heck isn’t! Remember: Digital Eel games make perfectly silly and surprising virtual stocking stuffers. Happy Krimble!
The long awaited day has finally arrived. Digital Eel is pleased to announce that Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is available once again for the Mac. This release brings the Mac version up to date with the PC version, and it runs on OS X 10.9 Mavericks or greater.
In celebration of this special event, Weird Worlds for Mac will be available on Steam at a 50% discount. Now everyone can return to Infinite Space, and we hope to see new explorers as well! Also, three Kawangi honks for Henry Kropf whose effort and TLC made this release possible. Thanks Henry!
Sail the high Sea of Stars early with a little help from our friends at Bundle Stars. For a limited time you can get Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars and five other Steam Early Access games for the introductory price of $3.49. Bundles are a great deal and this one’s no exception. Check out the Early Access Evolution bundle HERE.
Our admiration and best wishes to all of the 1000 or so entrants and finalists. It’s a worthy achievement to get a game ready to submit. IndieCade happens in Culver City, California from October 9 through October 12, 2014. Hope to see some of you there!
Hello, folks! While we have been putting out updates almost on a weekly basis on Steam and many of you have seen them if you’re playing the game, I figured it would be a good time to post an update here as well, as we are releasing a new trailer video. Check it out below!
The development of the game is trucking along at a steady pace, and a lot has changed in the last few months. All the user interfaces are much nicer, and content-wise we have already surpassed Weird Worlds in many ways. For example, we now have more types of starships than WW and are busy adding more – in the next content update you’ll see a new alien race that had no presence in the previous game aside from one random event, but will now have a full-featured fleet and signature technologies. Thank you for helping make this possible!
This just in via hypernoodle: For those of you who missed the previous discount period, you can still get into the weird universe of Sea of Stars Early Access and save a couple bucks by doing so here. Offer ends this week however.
Also you can listen to podcast interviews with Sea of Stars developers Iikka Keranen and Rich Carlson here and here.
Isn’t summer grand! BUT before you head out to the beach or campground, be sure to stock up on lots of Digital Eel games, and this is the very best way! Remember the old adage? He who seeks, obtains. Well, thanks to Steam, all Digital Eel games are discounted this week to make obtaining them…a snap (or a click even). Plus, they’re irresistible! (Not to mention gluten-free.)
A mid-month Sea of Stars Early Access update has been posted with the latest additions to the game. Be sure to check it out. Also see James “Capntastic” Murff’s positive early preview of Sea of Stars. We look forward to future coverage as development continues. Good things to come. Watch the skies!
