Shrapnel Games sale

Strategy game discounts available till this Sunday.

News Release: For Immediate Release

Hampstead, NC, 03 September 2008

Labor Day has come and gone, signaling the end of summer and the ability to wear whites (but do gamers own anything but black t-shirts with hip ironic messages on the front?). For many the end of summer also means the end of fun as carefree days of sunny bliss are replaced by long nights and the grind of work and school. Shrapnel Games doesn't want your summer to end just yet though!

Continuing on through September 7th is our very special sale at our online store, the Gamers Front, celebrating our new site design. All in stock computer game titles have been discounted as much as $8.00 off their regular retail price! Sales like this don't come along every day, so be sure to take advantage of the savings today! And hey, if you're already the proud owner of our complete catalog don't forget the end of summer means the powerslide into the holiday season. Be the hit of your neighborhood when you pass out The Falklands War:1982 on Halloween, stuff the Thanksgiving turkey with Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, and top the Festivus pole with a copy of winSPWW2 Enhanced Edition.

And speaking of winSPWW2 and The Falklands War: 1982, not only can you save on them through September 7th but they also happen to be the monthly specials at the Gamers Front. This means that if you're strapped for cash until the 8th, fear not, you'll be able to save on both titles until the end of September.

The Falklands War: 1982 is a real-time (but don't confuse its real-time with your typical real-time title) simulation of the brief conflict between Great Britain and Argentina over the sheep covered islands in the South Atlantic. Command company to brigade size units, fighting over high resolution digital elevation maps of the terrain, in dynamic weather and both historical and hypothetical scenarios. High fidelity combat modeling allows even bayonet charges, and an extensive weapons database is sure to please the discerning wargamer. On sale through the end of the month for only $38.95.

winSPWW2 Enhanced CD Edition is THE tactical turn-based hex game on your PC! Forget measuring your play time in hours, weeks, or even months, winSPWW2 will give you years of gaming pleasure. Based on the classic SSI Steel Panthers series, winSPWW2 is a detailed look at combined arms warfare from 1930 until 1946. Besides the hundreds of scenarios that ship with the game crafting new scenarios and campaigns is easy to do, all with the support of a very active community.

The Enhanced CD Edition of winSPWW2 provides gamers with a printed quick start manual and CD, higher resolutions of play (up to 1600x1200), cut and paste map editor, encrypted secure tournament play with 250 save slots, encyclopedic sorting ability, fully enabled ScenHack utility for scenarios, and CampaignHack for converting existing DOS based campaigns and more. It is on sale until month's end for only $33.95.

The FREE version of winSPWW2, which does not feature the Enhanced CD bits, can be downloaded at the below link. While it does not include the cool enhancements above, it is highly robust, providing the same addictive gameplay as the Enhanced CD version.
