Space Game News and Deals – 11/28-30/12

Newsy News

End Your Week with Some Newsiness!

Hey y’all, happy Friday! SO, SO sorry about the lack of news for the last couple of days, lots of busy work stuff that had to be finished and I just had neither the time or the energy. Things have slowed a bit now, so now I can get caught up, so let’s dive in, shall we?

Now, in deals, there’s a bunch to discuss.

  • There’s a new bundle at Bundle Stars which includes Star Wolves 2. Currently the price is $6.88 for all of the games.
  • If you’d like Star Wolves 3: Civil War, the new Indie Gala bundle lets you get it and other games if you pay currently more than $3.94.
  • You can pre-order Iron Sky Invasion for 60% off at Green Man Gaming, bringing the price to $15.99.
  • Finally, you can get the amazing Hardwar on sale this weekend at DotEmu for $2.40.

These are some fantastic deals, all told (well, I dunno about Iron Sky yet, but the rest are really awesome).

That’s it folks! I hope y’all had a lovely week, and may you have a fantastic weekend ahead!

Spacey News – 11/26/12

It's the News!

Newsiness = Happiness. I Think?

Hey y’all, happy Monday, and welcome back to the work week (for those of us with a traditional work week at least). There was a decent bit of news since yesterday’s update, so let’s jump in, shall we?

In non-space gamey news, the folks at Gamasutra have a look at the beloved TRS-80, which I played my first-ever spacey games on. Finally, in non-gamey news, there’s a new piece of spacey art by MANCHU over on the Concept Ships blog, and a reader with the great name of Brian turned me onto this website called ShapeWright wherein you can build a ship in a web-based WebGL environment. I can’t try it here at work, sadly, but he recommends it. ;)

That’s it for today folks. Thanks for reading, and have a wondrous day!

Limit Theory Q&A: Limitless Procedural Good Timiness

Limit Theory Mining Screenshot

Mining! Yay!

A few days ago, I was clued into a nifty looking Kickstarter campaign for a spacey game called Limit Theory. Unlike other campaigns, this one was well-pitched, and captivated me from the start. Even though I loathe to write Q&A questions (I can never think of good ones, I feel), I felt compelled enough to contact the game’s lone developer, Josh Parnell, and try to get more information. The Q&A below is the result. ;) I hope you enjoy the answers as much as I did. :)

News Satellite Dish

Bring On the News!

Hey y’all, happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a great weekend (or in our case here in the U.S., a long holiday weekend)! A lot happened over the long weekend and while I don’t usually post on Sundays, some of this is time sensitive. Therefore, let’s get the week started with a ton of spacey gamey news! Remember, all videos that can be embedded will be after the cut.

In other news, Cliff Harris has a great article on Kickstarter inequality which is totally worth a read. In non-gamey news, the lead dev of Beyond Beyaan has a life update, and there are some lovely Halo 4 ship drawings over on the Concept Ships blog. In bargains, there’s a new Fueling Up bundle over on GamersGate which includes Aeon Command and Space Pirates and Zombies.

Finally, the devs behind the Interstellar Marines: Prologue Kickstarter asked me to promote their campaign, and while it’s not a spacey game, I’m happy to help as much as I can.

That’s it folks. Have a great day, and thanks for visiting!

2012 Space Game Holiday Buying Guide

Santa's Spaceship

Santa’s Here with Savings Again!

It’s that time of year again where we buy presents for others (and let’s be honest, ourselves) for whatever reason or holiday you follow. :) If you recall, I did a holiday buying guide for 2011 last year that people seemed to find helpful, and a lot of the games on that list still apply. :) To avoid repetition, however, I’ll make an entirely new lest for this year and each year thereafter. ;)

Now, 2012 was a pretty good year for space games, both new and old, so while this list will be shorter than last year’s, taken together they will hopefully be a valuable resource in your gift research arsenal. :) This year I’ll be recommending games that have been released since the last guide, specifically games I have enough time with that I feel comfortable recommending. That being said, let’s take a look at the guide…
