Spacey Game Sales Underway!

Tons of Space Games on Sale!

Save Your Moneys!

Hey guys! I’m still chipping away at that massive news post I keep promising with now about three weeks of news (around 150 items currently) backlogged, but some sales hit today that I wanted to make y’all aware of. First, Amazon is having a massive Last Summer Deals sale which includes some spacey goodness such as:

Steam is also having an unexpected sale, this time to celebrate one year of Steam Greenlight. Spacey game deals include:

If someone was to ask me what the best deals here were, I’d say X3: Gold in the Amazon sale (since it also includes Alnion Prelude, which is pretty decent) and Ring Runner. On Steam, though there’s not much of a game there yet, Kinetic Void has a ton of potential, so it’s a small price to pay for what hopefully will be a great game. Enjoy!

Edit: This just dropped as I wrote this post, but there’s a massive Paradox Humble Weekly Bundle that, white at its base doesn’t include any space games, if you pay $125 you get nearly fifty Paradox games which includes Sword of the Stars II. I’ll likely get the smaller bundle just for the soundtracks alone my own self, but wow, overall that’s a damned fine deal.

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

News and 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!

OH MY GOD that was a lot. But wait, we also have DEALS! Besides the two mentioned yesterday, we also have the following:

FINALLY, we’re done. That took FOREVER to put together, but I love y’all, so y’all are worth it. ;) Have a great weekend!

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

News Satellite Dish


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!
