News Release: For Immediate Release
Hampstead, NC, 23 November 2009
Shrapnel Games doesn't want you to wait until Black Friday, that traditional day of sales and savings here in the US, for you to get your gaming on a discount. No, we want you to start saving right this instant! And continue to save until December 13th. We're talking savings so huge it'll feel like Black Friday, Christmas, Boxing Day, Hanukkah, Festivus, and Flag Day all got together, cornered you in a back alley and beat you senseless. Yeah, okay, that analogy might not make a lot of sense, but you know what does? Our freaking sale!
Whether you like machines of war spewing death and destruction on the modern battlefield, performing blood rituals in the name of your god, befriending galactic chickens and ripping them off for a new set of warp drives, the Shrapnel Games sale has something for almost everyone. Even for gamers who aren't warmongering, sociopathic, fowl foes. Let's take a look at what's on sale, yes?
Save $3.00 off the following titles:
Battle Group Commander: Episode One. An education in the British military, but you don't have to wear a crest adorned blazer, nor have to eat kedgeree.
BRAINPIPE: A Plunge to Unhumanity. A deep, engaging look at the delicate nature of diplomacy in the 21st century. Or maybe it's a fun arcade game featuring lots of pretty colors and awesome sounds. Your call.
And hey, while three dollars off might not seem like a big deal since both titles sell for under a song already this is a pretty sweet deal.
You'll save $4.00 off the regular retail price on the following:
Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space. Become an explorer, warship commander, or pirate (but not ice pirate) in a sci-fi romp that takes less than thirty minutes and is new with each play. Plus everyone loves space chickens.
winSPMBT Enhanced CD Edition. Like modern tanks? Like hexes? Like classic gameplay? Here's a game for you. Now wipe that drool off the keyboard. Umm, that was drool right?
winSPWW2 Enhanced CD Edition. Like winSPMBT but only with World War Two (and pre) tanks. You can never go wrong with a tactical wargame featuring lots of combined action warfare.
War Plan Pacific. Hey, remember when you used to be able to play SPI's War in the Pacific every weekend for a full year? Remember how that was twenty years ago, before the wife, before kids, and before your career? Get your PTO fix now in a single session! Refight the entire conflict in just a few hours.
On the following titles you'll save $5.00 off their normal retail price:
Air Assault Task Force. Airmobile operations from Vietnam through Afghanistan. Recent Afghanistan, not Soviet invasion Afghanistan. Flight of the Valkyries not included.
BCT Commander. Bacon Cheddar Tomato Commander, the ultimate sandwich simulation! Oh wait, no. Actually a hyper realistic simulation of modern ground combat, treadheads looking for realism in their games should look no further.
The Star and the Crescent. Not one of those terrible coexist bumper stickers. Refight pivotal battles of the Arab-Israeli conflicts. Lots of tank on tank action, bow-wow-chicka-wow-wa.
Save $6.00 off the following:
Air Command 3.0. Takes a highly stressful real life occupation and turns it into a fun, engaging non-violent game perfect for gamers looking for something different. Of course if you prefer something violent you can always make the airliners collide.
Salvo!. Relive the days of fighting sail without such nastiness as peg boys. Turn based naval wargaming with a scenario editor means an endless supply of wooden ships and iron men.
ATF: Armored Task Force. More fun with tanks because games based on M817 dump trucks would be pretty dull. The core game in which many ProSIM titles are based off of, another fine realistic simulation of modern ground combat.
The Falklands War: 1982. Galtieri took the Union Jack/And Maggie over lunch one day/Took a cruiser with all hands/Apparently to make him give it back. Step back in time to 1982 and wage war at the bottom of the world.
Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War. Next stop on the regime change world tour, take the fight to the Commies in North Korea. Features a variety of challenges and plenty of chrome dealing with what would be a very unique conflict.
Finally, take a whopping $8.00 off of:
Dominions 3: The Awakening. Isn't it about time you finally got this? Or do you enjoy being shunned by all your strategy gamer friends?
Space HoRSE. A horse is a horse, of course of course, unless it's a space horse! Easy to learn, multiplayer economic gaming fun that will bring back fond memories of the 8-bit era.
Remote Assault. There was a Cops episode once in which a drunk shirtless dude threw a television remote at his wife. This isn't that kind of remote assault. This is a real-time strategy game of near-future warfare.
Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa. Be the dungeon master! Play the core game or create your own Rogue-like games with Scallywag's modding ability. Remember, there's nothing wrong with a grudge monster.
