Sea of Stars v1.1.0 update: mod support, new content and FTL fun!

Seasons greetings from the Purple Void!

To celebrate the traditional Terran solstice festival, Digital Eel is proud to announce a great new update for Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars!

The new version 1.1.0 introduces totally revamped mod support with a handy browser for launching mods, and now lets mod makers access the built-in editing tools that we used to make content for the game.

We have also added new content to the game in the form of a new special quest featuring a special guest, the notorious Tiberian swamp pirate Arch Fenster! Oh, and just possibly a ship from that other space roguelike-like game created by one of our Kickstarter backers may make an appearance!*

For all of our Steam fans, this update just keeps on giving by adding over fifty achievements, as well as Steam trading cards, badges (not steenking), profile backgrounds and emoticons!

Sea of Stars will be updated to the new version on Friday (today), December 18. Get it from STEAM, IndieGameStand (DRM-free) or the Humble Store (Steam or DRM-free). Non-DRM users may download a v1.1.0 Windows patch HERE.

May the Star-Krampus be gentle!

Iikka, Rich and the Sea of Stars gang

Sea of Stars released – Weird Worlds now $4.99

The space roguelike series that started it all continues!

We’re so proud that you can finally play this cool (I even say “creepy”) little game. What is Sea of Stars? A kind of “lunchtime roguelike set in deep space” or “instant space opera”, if you will.

Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars is a starship roguelike, a sandbox adventure game of interstellar exploration and space battles.

Travel from star to star, discover strange artifacts and lifeforms, upgrade your ship with new systems and weapons, build up your flotilla with allies and mercenaries, and take on a variety of alien menaces.

Get the Mac or Windows version of Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars from STEAM or IndieGameStand (DRM-free) for $6.66 (33% off) until November 8.

Additionally, the price of the previous Infinite Space game, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, has been permanently reduced in price to $4.99 (50% reduction).

Weird Worlds is very similar to Sea of Stars except that it is presented in 2D rather than 3D. Weird Worlds was a 2006 IGF award winner. It’s available for Mac and Windows via STEAM, IndieGameStand, and other fine game software vendors.
