It’s an Infinite Hypersale in Humblespace!

Attention, would be rocket jocks and space cowgirls! Weird Worlds and its sequel, Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars, are on sale at The Humble Store for the next 10 days. Both games feature the hybrid space roguelike design first introduced in 2002 with Strange Adventures in Infinite Space (Free, for Win98/XP, Mac Pre-Lion OS X and Mac OS 9) and are 50% off.

Feel free to get familiar with the Infinite Space game system by playing Weird Worlds first. If you like it, and we’re sure you will, give Sea of Stars a go. While it is similar, it has its own unique quirks, twists and special features. It also features a dynamite space soundtrack by British compser, Edwin Sykes–music not to be missed!

Get Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space @ 50% off for $2.49. Get Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars @ 50% off for $4.99. Listen to Edwin Sykes’s Sea of Stars Suite.

Enjoy your saga among the weird worlds of the Purple Void and remember: the stars are your destiny, that disgusting alien on your left might be your friend, and happiness is a warm particle vortex cannon.

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

*Discover and command the Kestrel from FTL!
