The Humble Winter Sale Begins!

Humbly we’re happy to announce the Humble Store Winter Sale. So, check out what we did! (Are we crazy?) You can get both Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space AND Infinite Space 3: Sea of Stars for the low, low price of $2.49 each! Wow!

There’s no time like right now to Engage! Weird Worlds of wonder, and a gaggle of disgusting aliens, await you! What is a gaggle, btw? Anyway, please note that a portion of every Humble purchase goes to charity*. Since 2010, Humble has given over $117,000,000 to charities like Make a Wish, the Red Cross, Save the Children and more. I guess that’s why they’re Humble–because they are!

The Winter Sale runs for the next 13 days. Get on it so you can explore the galaxy during your lunch hour. (Or dinner, or 2nd breakfast, or a late night snack–wait a minute, Ripcord is getting hungry!)

Ripcord out (to lunch).

Steam Summer Sale = Space game time!

Well, spring sprung a while ago now. Summer has finally arrived (no kidding Sherlock, it’s hot out here!). Time for beaches, family picnics, ball games, fireworks, traffic (!) and, beginning today, the spectrum of groovy games on sale from Steam, including Digital Eel’s fantabulous space roguelikes. Get ready to engage!

(You know the phrase: Get ’em all! Hey, there’s only two, and at prices so low–66% off!–that you’ll actually want to give Digital Eel more money for them! Unfortunately the system doesn’t work that way, so just feel free to take the games and run.)

So, from today (June 22) until the 5th of July, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space and its sequel, Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars, are fast-food cheap for your summer purchasing pleasure. Also note that Digital Eel’s award-winning Brainpipe: A Plunge to Unhumanity and Data Jammers: FastForward are now free and available from Steam as well.

Meanwhile, stay cool. Play a great game in air-conditioned comfort.*

Ripcord out.

*Air-conditioning unit not included in price.
