Sea of Stars Update – 3/9/2015

Hello, space cadets! Today’s Sea of Stars update brings you perhaps the most alien of all the alien races in the game so far – the Ravians. Their take on starships and weapon technology is certainly unique – I think you’ll be surprised and delighted! They are also featured in a major quest that can randomly occur. Other notable additions include the Hyperdrive, a device that provides an alternative way to travel between stars.

We have also released a brand new trailer video, showing off all the new additions to the game since the previous one. The variety of content that now exists in the game really makes a huge difference! Check it out below.

On Mac OS X front, we have some good news – Henry now has a version of the game running on the Mac! We’re planning to release it as soon as possible after the Windows version reaches 1.0.

Sea of Stars development update #23

Happy New Year from Digital Eel!

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.

Have a great year and watch the skies!

Seasons greetings from Digital Eel!

Beginning today, Thursday, December 18, and continuing until Friday, January 2nd, INFINITE SPACE III: SEA OF STARS (Early Access), WEIRD WORLDS: RETURN TO INFINITE SPACE (space!), DATA JAMMERS: FASTFORWARD (arcade!) and BRAINPIPE: A PLUNGE TO UNHUMANITY (??!!) are each available for less than the cost of a Back in the Box hanguber–and yum yum. They taste better too!

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!

Sea of Stars Update – 8/28/2014

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!
