Firecracker Savings With The July Gamers Front Specials!

News Release: For Immediate Release

Cary, NC, 02 July 2010

It's the beginning of a new month which means two new titles are being discounted at the Gamers Front, the official Shrapnel Games online store. All month long in July gamers demanding the very best in their independent strategy titles can snag Dominions 3: The Awakening and the Enhanced Edition of winSPMBT at reduced prices.

Remember your first kiss? First job promotion? First car? First time you buried the body in the crawlspace? Dominions 3: The Awakening is the digital equivalent of all those euphoric feelings exploding all over your monitor in a gooey puddle of delight. It is, without hyperbole (umm...), the single greatest fantasy turn based strategy game to be played on a computer. It inspires threads hundreds of pages long across the Internet, is praised by even the most hardened critics, and continues to be played years after its release. It's so freaking amazing that there are even rumors that a woman in Northwest Canada married her copy of Dominions 3: The Awakening, declaring that "unlike every man I've known it keeps me satisfied night after night with new and exciting ways to play."

Dominions 3: The Awakening is a game that is in it for the long haul with you. This is a turn based strategy game of expansion and conquest that features scores of nations, hundreds of units, spells, and magical items, and limitless strategies for them all. This is a game in which years after its release discussion of tactics is still a fresh topic. This is a title that still receives continual support by the developers and community. This is not a game that goes quietly in the night, Dominions 3: The Awakening kicks the night's ass and then parties with dawn.

A perfect multi-player game, Dominions 3: The Awakening supports up to twenty-one players and is playable as a PBEM, meaning players can play around their schedules. It also boasts robust operating system support, playable on not only Windows but also Mac and Linux systems as well!

Dominions 3: The Awakening is available as both a physical product, which comes complete with a 300+ page manual written by the great Dr. Bruce Geryk, or as a download. The download also comes with the manual but since it's electronic it cannot be used to eliminate household pests like quasits. For the entire month of July it is on sale for only $49.95.

Read more about Dominions 3: The Awakening at its official product page.

The second Shrapnel product on sale this month is the Enhanced Edition of fan favorite winSPMBT.

winSPMBT is the companion game to winSPWW2, picking up where that game stops. In winSPMBT players command an awesome arsenal of modern day weapon platforms from 1946 until 2020. From the well known to the obscure, if it exists in the real world (or has at one time) and is used to kill things it is probably in the game. Heck, it even features equipment that doesn't kill things.

winSPMBT is a tactical game. It's not a game of abstract combat sweeping across vast distances, it's up close and personal. Every bullet counts. Behind every hill could be death. This is the type of game in which stories naturally evolve from, whether about the time your battered Centurion took out an entire company of Russkies, or that exciting PBEM game in which you came back from near defeat and claimed victory.

This is a classic wargame. Turns and hexes in a gorgeous 2D environment. A highly playable system that is easy to get into. Go against the AI or another human. Friendly to a wide range of systems, making it a perfect wargame for toting around on your laptop.

Featuring a couple hundred scenarios, several campaigns, and simple ways to make more either on the fly or through carefully crafted scenario editing, winSPMBT Enhanced Edition provides plenty of bang for your buck. After all, not only do you get enough gaming to last a lifetime you also get to enjoy it at resolutions up to 1600x1200, edit with multiple levels of undo, and more.

winSPMBT Enhanced Edition is available for Windows and can be purchased as either a physical product or as a download. All month long it is on sale for only $34.95.

Find out more about the game at its product page.
