Shrapnel Games Celebrates The Pure Awesomeness Of National Catfish Month With A Freaking Sale!

News Release: For Immediate Release

Cary, NC, 11 August 2010

Did you know it's National Catfish Month? That's right, an entire month dedicated to those wacky and adorable creatures of the muddy rivers and lakes of North America. Of course besides living in muck catfish enjoy peering out from ceiling tiles and attacking unsuspecting cattle that stray too near the water's edge by way of launching venomous mucous and then burrowing into the stunned bovines' intestines.

To celebrate this most glorious creature Shrapnel Games is pleased to announce our best sale of the summer, the Gone Fishing sale, running from August 11th until August 20th. Cast your line into the water for discounted savings on all our currently available computer games direct from the Shrapnel Games e-store, the Gamers Front.

Hook 25% off the normal retail price of the following titles:

BRAINPIPE: A Plunge to Unhumanity - Imagine someone reaches their hand into your head and squeezes your eyes from the inside while Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds plays in the background.

Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War - Not for export to the DPRK.

Remote Assault - It has robots in it. Robots that like to BLOW THINGS UP.

Salvo! - It's like a starship tactical game, except instead of starships you have sailing ships, and instead of space you have sea, and instead of photon cannons you just have regular cannons that shoot large spheres that don't really go pew-pew-pew.

Scallywag: In The Lair Of The Medusa - Of lairs it tends to be a rather nice one, although the throw pillows really don't match the color of the duvet.

Space HoRSE - They said it couldn't be done; launching a horse into space. They were wrong. Of course the horse imploded once it got outside the atmosphere, but that's a tale for another time.

The Star and the Crescent - As the song says, peace sells but who's buying? Arabs. Israelis. Fight!

Filet 20% off the full price of the following games:

Air Assault Task Force - "How can you shoot women and children?" "Easy, you just don't lead them so much!" Join the Air Cav in Vietnam, Somalia, and Afghanistan.

ATF: Armored Task Force - Tanks for all the memories. The game of modern armored combat that plays out in a realistic real-time manner.

Battle Group Commander: Episode One - Learn that war isn't cricket as you command a British Battle Group in this ProSIM mini-game.

BCT - The classic game that spawned the ATF and AATF line of games. Learn the true meaning of real-time strategy.

Lure 15% off all these games:

Dominions 3: The Awakening - Don't all those AARs floating around the 'net just make you want to jump into the game? So buy it already and do so!

War Plan Pacific - Speed wargaming without losing historical plausibility. It can be done. And it has.

Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space - Space doesn't have to be big and scary. It can be tamed, and it likes presents and hugs. Give the purple void a hug.

winSPMBT and winSPWW2 - For fans of tactical combat these two games are akin to watching a lemur and an octopus get into a knife fight; it just doesn't get any more entertaining. All the tanks, guns, and planes you could want from the '30s until 2020.

And don't forgot all month long we have Air Command 3.0 and The Falklands War: 1982 on sale at the Gamers Front as the monthly special.
