  1. Weird Worlds for Windows returns!


    From out of the Purple Void it comes, tentacles searching….with an update, a crazy sale and a new low price!

    Shipshape and starbound with a spiffy new version 1.30 update, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, the original award-winning space science fiction roguelike-like, is back on sale beginning on December 3 via IndieGameStand.

    This initial, very special “pay what you want” offer is available for four days (December 3 – December 6) and includes a massive Infinite Space game pack featuring fan favorite mods, all versions of the original Strange Adventures in Infinite Space game, the unsupported Weird Worlds for Mac (Pre-Lion OS X) game and lots more.

    After the IGS sale, Weird Worlds will be immediately available from Desura and soon, Steam and other fine game portals, for a new low price of $9.99.

    Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is a hybrid roguelike game of space exploration, adventure and starship combat set within a peculiar region of the Milky Way galaxy known as the Purple Void.

    Each time Weird Worlds is played, a new and different “instant space opera” is generated (star systems, nebulae, black holes, planets, alien races, starships, lifeforms, artifacts, quests, etc., are intelligently randomized), but unlike other games of its roguelike kind that go on for dozens of hours, it plays to its conclusion in less than thirty minutes. (Tip: Weird Worlds is the perfect lunch break game.)

    Features also include a fully animated star map, a unique turn-based movement system, real-time starship battles (naval/Wrath of Khan style), full color hi-res graphics, award-winning music and sound, mod friendliness and a robust battle simulator.

    Be sure to visit Weird Worlds on Facebook. Stop by, say hi to friends across the cyberverse, and help us celebrate the re-release of a terrific space game.  See you there!
