Ludo Lunacy With Digital Eel!

For Immediate Release

Hampstead, NC, 09 September 2009

Are you a fan of the award winning Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space? Do you long for Weird Worlds bedsheets, Weird Worlds underwear, Weird Worlds canned beets? Have you named your child after your favorite Weird Worlds alien race? If so, good news, as Digital Eel has expanded the Weird Worlds universe with Space Ludo!

Space Ludo takes the familiar game of Ludo (which you may have played before as Pachisi, Fia, or Mens-erger-je-niet. No? How about Sorry!? Yep, that's Ludo.) and awesomfies it with colorful Weird Worlds artwork and game bending wackiness including wormholes and deathmatch play. That's correct, hardcore brutal deathmatch! This sure isn't your grandma's Mens-erger-je-niet!

Space Ludo is playable by two to four players (or one lonely individual with imaginary opponents) in under a hour. It's self-published by Digital Eel's newest enterprise, Let's Play Games, and uses The Game Crafter service. Youcan find it here: https://www.thegamecrafter.com/games/space-ludo

Now if you've gotten this far into the release but you don't know what Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is-beyond the fact that it is award winning and Weird Worlds underwear sounds cool-here's the scoop. Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is an amazing game available on your computer (either Windows or Mac) developed by Digital Eel and published by Shrapnel Games. You can purchase it for only $24.95 either as a physical copy shipped to you anywhere in the world, or you can buy it as a download.

Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is a lot like the adventure/story telling genre found in the world of board games. In Weird Worlds players become starship captains of scientific, military, or rogue backgrounds exploring the uncharted stellar realms of Sector Prime. Watch your story unfold as you explore strange worlds, meet interesting allies and foes, and collect plenty of phat lewt. Each mission is randomly generated and on average takes about thirty minutes to play. Epic stories have never been made more accessible.

Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is extremely mod friendly. From tweaking a mechanic or two to a full total conversion, your voyages amongst the Purple Void will always be fresh.

And coming soon from Shrapnel Games and Digital Eel take your Weird Worlds experience to the tabletop with Eat Electric Death!. Eat Electric Death! ditches the exploration aspect and focuses on lasers going pew-pew-pew and starships exploding in the inky black. Take command of seven races from Weird Worlds and pilot everything from nimble fighters to massive decimators. Unlike many starship combat games learning to fly is easy, and within minutes of opening the box players will be dealing out the harsh justice of plasma rays.

More information on Eat Electric Death! and the ability to pre-order (expected arrival this quarter) can be found here.
