Save Big With The Shrapnel Games Back To School Sale!

For Immediate Release

Hampstead, NC, 25 August 2009

School is back in session which means many things for many people. For the kids it's a glimpse into what adulthood holds for them. Get used to waking up early and spending the majority of your day rotting away under fluorescent lights and petty dictators. But don't worry, after forty years you'll finally be able to sleep in. For adults it means snarled traffic, lungs full of school bus exhaust, and a bleeding wallet to keep your kids hip with the in crowd.

To help ease the suffering Shrapnel Games wants you to play games, specifically our games, and so we're offering our biggest sale of the year so far, even bigger than our anniversary sale.
