Some Spacey Gamey Deals

Tons of Space Games on Sale!

Go! Buy! Save!

Hey folks, I’m still mired in work and such, but I wanted to let y’all know of some deals going on at the moment covering some spacey game goodness.

First, Steam’s weeklong deals include the following:

  • AI War Collection for $4.24 (AMAZING deal right there, seriously, best I’ve ever seen for all this specific content) as well as the base game and individual DLC being 75% off apiece
  • Space Empires Collection for $4.99 which includes both IV and V, which are also 75% off apiece. Personally I’d say go for IV and skip V, but maybe you’re a completest like me, I dunno. ;)

Then, GetGames is having an Indie Carnival, and apparently the discount gets deeper the more games you add to the cart. The spacey games they have include (and remember, these prices I believe change if you add more to the cart):

That’s it for now folks. I’ll be getting back on the update horse soonish, but until then, happy gaming. :)

It’ll Make Sense Once You Listen…

Hello, and welcome to the latest episode of the Space Game Junkie podcast. This week, Jim and I sit down with James Woodall and Andrew Ackermann of Blind Mind Studios to talk about Star Ruler 2, the sequel to their well-received 4X space game from 2010 (along with a bunch of other stuff, like Clippy!!). :)

Edit: Okay, a new file has been uploaded, sadly at a lower bitrate, but it should still sound okay, please let us know if there any any problems. Thanks!

We hope you enjoy the show, look forward to your comments below, invite you to follow us on iTunes or through RSS, and thank you for listening. :)

Spacey Game Newsies and Dealsies 7/27-30/13: The Recovering-From-The-Weekend Edition

It's the News!

News. You Know It. You Love It.

Helllllooooooooo everyone, and happy Tuesday! How y’all doin’? Me? I think I’m coming off of a space game break…or at the very least, a “I only wanna play Skyrim” break. Those seem to crop up every once in a while, but thankfully I was able to put a bunch of hours in it recently and get it out of my system, so now I’m excited about other games again! Yay balance (at least I hope this is balance)! I have a good deal of stuff that needs catching up, too, primarily Ring Runner, which deserves a review, as well as Distant Worlds: Shadows and a Historicon report covering Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager, all of which should be up within a week-ish. :) Now with that out of the way, let’s divei nto some news! :)

Next up, in deals, Steam’s weeklong deals include Space Empires IV Deluxe for $2.49 and Space Empires V for 3.74. If you ask me, IV is the one to get.

Finally, in related news we have a few things. First up, Space Sector has an interview with Ian McNeil of the Slitherine Group about their upcoming Sci-Fi titles taken at Historicon (an article covering which I’m also working on). Then, Eurogamer has word of twenty cancelled Star Wars games being recently revealed, one of which was Star Wars: Han Solo, so one thinks there’d be some Millennium Falcon flying action in there. Finally, podcast co-host Jim has a new podcast called Your Favorite Podcast, and brought me on to talk about indie games and press conferences. Check it out.

That’s it for today. Have an awesome day y’all!

Spacey Game Newsies and Dealsies 6/13-14/13: The Freaking Exhausted Edition

News and Coffee

Mmmm…Coffee…

Helllloooooo everyone, and happy Friday! Sorry about the lack of news yesterday, the day just got away from me and I just had no energy left by the end of it. That kinda bleeds into today, where I’m staying home because I slept soooo poorly last night (and for the last few weeks, honestly) that I could barely get out of bed. Also, some moron ringing my doorbell at 2 AM didn’t help. I’ve barely had energy for anything of late, even gaming, sadly. I hope that getting a bunch of extra rest today helps with that. Now, with that said, there’s a good bit of news and deals to get through, so let’s get to it.

But wait, we have more. There’s a good amount of deals happening right now as well! :)

  • First off, today’s daily deal on Steam is Strike Suit Zero for $9.99.
  • Steam is also having a weekend deal on Kerbal Space Program for $15.40, which is a freaking steal people for how much stuff there is here.
  • Then, the latest Indie Gala bundle includes both Sword of the Stars Complete and Star Ruler, plus a bunch of other games, for $5.96 currently.
  • The Indie Gala store has deals on both Space Empires IV Deluxe for $4.99 and Space Empires V for $2.99.
  • Finally, GamersGate is having a Stardock Weekend which includes deals on both Galactic Civilizations games and all of the Sins of a Solar Empire stuff.

And that’s it folks. Thanks for reading, and have an awesome weekend!

Spacey Game News and Deals 2/25-26/13: Catching Up Edition

News Satellite Dish

SO MUCH NEWS!!!

Hello everyone, and happy Tuesday! Sorry about the lack of news yesterday, had a dentist appointment and no time to put into this, sadly. Fun times! This mean I have news from today, yesterday and the weekend to cover, so let’s dive in!

Next up, sales, and there’s a good chunk of stuff! Steam is having several midweek sales, which includes the following:

Finally, related news! First, since we cover older games here, I though that a new version of the Amiga emulator WinUAE being released was somewhat relevant, thanks to Indie Retro News for the update. Next, I missed this somehow but Artem Bank — the gentleman who composed the amazing music for Star Ruler — has two new bits of music out, “Facebook 5” and “Natural” which sound great. Finally, the Concept Ships blog has fantastic ships from Joseph Cross and a gorgeous orbiter concept from Rasmus Poulsen.

That’s it folks! WHEW! Thanks for visiting, and enjoy!

Spacey Gamey News and Dealsies 2/21-22/13: Random Bucket of Randomness

Radio News

OMG NEW NEWS GRAPHIC! ;)

Hey folks, happy Friday! Sorry about the lack of news yesterday, was a crazy day and just didn’t have time. There’s two days worth of stuff here, so let’s get right to it!

Now, in deals, there are a LOT to go over, so let’s dive in:

  • Gratuitous Space Battles is having a free weekend on Steam, plus the game itself is 75% off, meaning the base game is $3.74 and the “complete” pack is $4.74. The discount isn’t on the latest DLC though.
  • Lunar Flight (PC, Mac) is on sale at GetGames for 4.99.
  • The Indie Gala Colossus bundle includes a copy of Galactic Civilizations 1: Ultimate Edition along with a buncha other games if you pay around $5 as I write this.
  • Amazon is having a HUGE Farewell to February sale, which includes a few space games such as Space Empires 5 for $4.99, O.R.B. for $2.49 and Spacebar (which I’ve never heard of) for $1.24.
  • While not technically a space game, Sword of the Stars: The Pit — from the folks who made the Sword of the Stars space games — is finally available and going for $8.99 on GamersGate. Initial impressions are quite mixed on this one.

Finally, in kinda-related news, one of the co-founders of the Unity engine, which a lot of space game devs are using these days, it seems, has left the company to make games on his own. Finally finally, Ziff-Davis closed down 1Up, UGO and GameSpy yesterday, all of which gave decent coverage to space games, so I wish all those folks luck in finding new gigs.

That’s it for today folks! Have an awesome weekend!
