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!
This just in via hypernoodle: For those of you who missed the previous discount period, you can still get into the weird universe of Sea of Stars Early Access and save a couple bucks by doing so here. Offer ends this week however.
Also you can listen to podcast interviews with Sea of Stars developers Iikka Keranen and Rich Carlson here and here.
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.)
A mid-month Sea of Stars Early Access update has been posted with the latest additions to the game. Be sure to check it out. Also see James “Capntastic” Murff’s positive early preview of Sea of Stars. We look forward to future coverage as development continues. Good things to come. Watch the skies!
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.
It’s official. The Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars Early Access preview begins today. Kickstarter backers who pledged $25 or more will get a sneak peek and receive Steam keys that will grant immediate access to the current work-in-progress version of the game. Backers in the lower tiers (we love you too) will start receiving keys after the Early Access launch next week. Engage!
Hot news just in from the Purple Void: Get Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, the lunchtime roguelike-like that’s as much fun to play as lunch is to eat, right now for only $1.99 (.048 Altairian dollars) via Daily Royale. That’s like 80% off and the lowest price EVER! Go see and pass the word!
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!
