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!

For all full change lists and discussion about the game, check out the Steam Community Board!

It’s Steam Summer Sale time!

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.)

First up is Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars (33% OFF) which is a Steam Early Access game–this means it is a “work in progress,” but allows you to own and help playtest the game before its full release. Also available are Sea of Stars’s precursor, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space (50% OFF), the innovative and award winning space SF roguelike hybrid, Data Jammers: FastForward (50% OFF), a retro-styled 3D racing and destruction “arcade” game, and Brainpipe: A Plunge to Unhumanity (50% OFF), the original, and award winning, mind bending psychedelic arcade game that “changed little Billy.”

Thanks to Steam for putting on a heck of a sale, and thanks to you all for checking out and supporting Digital Eel games!

Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars Early Access Begins

Sail the high Sea of Stars with Digital Eel!

Even as development continues, we’re very excited to be able to share Sea of Stars early with Kickstarter backers and the gaming community at large. Steam’s Early Access allows you to play work-in-progress versions of the game (new build updates are automatic), provide critical feedback and actually help shape its creation.

Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars follows the design tradition of its precursors, Strange Adventures in Infinite Space (2002) and Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space (2005) with turn-based space exploration, real-time starship combat and roguelike elements. Sea of Stars differs in that it is presented in 3D and offers new features and content as well.

When Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars is released it will be priced at $9.95.

Sea of Stars Update – February 2014

Hi again, it’s time for another update on Infinite Space 3: Sea of Stars! This month we have been busy basically tying up loose ends and turning all the separate bits into an actual game. At the rate things are going, a beta release around the end of March seems quite doable.

The highlights of this update video include new user interfaces for buying ships at your homeworld; diplomatic (or undiplomatic) messages from alien races; lifeforms placed on planets that they could actually live on; color-coded weapon icons; deadly new carrier ships and the fiery destruction they cause!

In other Digital Eel news, as Sea of Stars beta release draws closer, we have lowered the prices of Brainpipe and Data Jammers: FastForward on Steam and other portals to less than a fancy cup of coffee. Check them out!
