Hot on the heals of the free Bounty Hunter expansion being released for Space Pirates and Zombies, Steam has cut the price of the game today to a piddly $2.49. That’s for the base game AND the new expansion pack (my review of which you can read here, if you’re on the fence). If you have ANY interest in spacey combat, this is an amazing deal, so check it out, and enjoy!
Space Pirates and Zombies (SPAZ) was the first game I ever reviewed for my beloved blog here. I spent a lot of time and had a lot of fun blowing up ships, gaining new hulls and making new friends and enemies before and since the game was released. Once I wrote that review, I moved on however, due to my short attention span — I RARELY finish games — and so many other games to cover, but in that time, SPAZ has become a pretty big success.
Now, months later, a new and FREE expansion is being released — called Bounty Hunters — which adds a new faction, new ships, and more reasons to potentially return to this awesome game. I spent some hours with the expansion — thanks to the awesome folks at MinMax games sending me an early copy — and now feel confident in sharing how I feel about the expansion. Is it worth your time to return to the game, or does it make it a better value if you’ve not purchased it yet? Read on, my friend.
How the hell did I not know about this until now? I have a theory — last time I actually went to the official Space Pirates and Zombies (SPAZ) website, I didn’t notice an RSS feed — so it’s fortunate that Rock, Paper Shotgun had a story on this today. According to the official website, MinMax games will be releasing a FREE expansion pack to SPAZ on March 19th. According to this thread, the expansion will add the new Bounty Hunter faction, ten new ships, strongholds and more! Yay! I can’t wait to give this a whirl in ten days!
Hey y’all, how are ya? I’m dang busy with work and working on my next SOL: Exodus diary entry, but I wanted to chime in and let y’all know that Steam is having a sale on the fantastic Space Pirates and Zombies throughout the entire weekend until Monday morning for $4, so if you’ve not jumped on the SPAZ bandwagon yet, now is a great time to do so. Enjoy!
The folks over at RTSguru are having a Space Pirates and Zombies Giveaway. They’ll be giving away thirty copies of the game to folks who spread the word about SPAZ by linking to their contest over Twitter or Facebook. If you don’t own the game already, head over to RTSguru and take a shot at winning a copy! Good luck!
