  1. Sea of Stars Update – October 2013

    1 Comment

    Hello, everyone. Unfortunately, we have to start this update with some bad news. Last month, our friend and art team member David Cash passed away after a long battle with chronic illness which he kept private from everyone. Rich and I have known Dave since we worked at Ion Storm in the late 1990’s. He will be missed.

    On the game itself, the video shows some new features like the hyperwave radar screen and multi-body systems. Sea of Stars will still only have one “primary” planetary body per system for you to explore (to keep the gameplay brisk), but moons and asteroid belts will add visual interest to special locations.

    Things have been a bit slower than I had hoped lately, and we’re not ready to announce a date for the release of a beta version yet. We are, however, just about ready to start delivering some of the other reward goodies for those backers in the $50 tier and above.

  2. Eat Electric Death! Lives


    What’s this about? Eat Electric Death! is our starship combat boardgame set in the Infinite Space universe. It was created in 2007 but has never been published. Now, with the help of Andrew Tullsen and Print and Play Productions, we’re able to offer a very special hand-crafted edition of the game with its original art for a close-shave price of $45. However, note that until November 1, the introductory price is only $40. Thanks, Andrew!

    Eat Electric Death! is a “beer and pretzel game,” easy to pick up and play and chock full of the kind of explosive action we see in space science fiction movies and TV shows. Replayability is always important to us so lots of scenarios and special setups are included. Essentially, if you like old school turn based tactical games that are played on a hex grid and involve throwing lots of dice, you’ll enjoy Eat Electric Death!

    This is exciting for us, and more information will appear here soon (including an additional special offer). Meanwhile, get the scoop from the Digital Eel news page and the details (description, component details, game images, etc.) from the Eat Electric Death! order page. Also, you can view the whole kit and kaboodle in one image here, and here you’ll find a 1280×1024 box top image. Go see and stay tuned!
