For Immediate Release

Cary, NC, 15 June 2010

Shrapnel Games has your cure for the summertime blues! From now until June 25th we're having a massive sale on all our current games. Games for Windows, for Linux, for Macs. Games shipped to your door or downloaded directly to your hard drive. Games of grand strategy, of tactics, of space and time. Award winning and critically acclaimed. Mod friendly. They're all on sale at our official store, the Gamers Front.

Gather around and let's check out the awesome discounts and even more awesome titles associated with said discounts...

Take $3.00 off the following titles:

Battle Group Commander: Episode One - You're British. You blow up Soviet equipment while eating Salisbury steak. Actually, while on the plains of Salisbury. Pip pip, cheerio!

BRAINPIPE: A Plunge to Unhumanity - Scary, metaphysical stuff that will blow your freaking mind. Dare you stare into the abyss of your mind? Dare you become more than human? Dare you beat your high score?

Save $4.00 off these fine games:

Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space - If Ernest Hemingway wrote computer games he would have written Weird Worlds. No, we don't know what that means either. What we do know is Weird Worlds is a game of infinite possibilities that takes less than twenty minutes to play.

BCT Commander - Wikipedia says BCT is a brigade combat team. Or the Broward County Transit authority. Either command a force of modern military units or a bunch of buses and light rail as you fight against the Axis of Evil and friends around the globe.

Remote Assault - Futuristic real-time strategy warfare that involves blowing the crap out of the enemy. Here at Shrapnel we have a lot of games of warfare that involves blowing the crap out of the enemy. We like those kinds of games.

Take $5.00 from the retail price of these titles:

Air Command 3.0 - A game that actually doesn't involve blowing the crap out of the enemy. Instead, the object is to ensure that no one gets blown up. Wait, what??? Stimulants to replicate the true feel of being an air traffic controller sold separately.

Salvo! - Before radar, ship to ship missiles, submarines, and carrier air strikes naval warfare consisted of wooden ships piloted by colorfully dressed sailors shooting big balls at each other. Relive the glory days of big balls and stout masts with Salvo!.

War Plan Pacific - Sequel to Peace Plan Pacific you can fight the entire PTO in a single evening even after they said it couldn't be done. Featuring multiple victory conditions, not to mention a slew of fatalities and secret endings, this is THE Pacific game to have your on your hard drive.

winSPMBT Enhanced Edition - It's like someone took the greatest modern tactical miniature game and using technowizardry transferred it to your computer. Chock full of so much gaming it threatens to collapse time-space when you play. Yes, it's that awesome.

winSPWW2 Enhanced Edition - More magick! Shermans, Panthers, and Cromwells fight on the beaches, in the fields, and beyond. Way too much gaming is contained here, with hundreds of hours of scenarios, campaigns, and quick battles.

Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa - Who doesn't like to kill monsters and take their loot? Dungeon crawls are much more satisfying when they involve hack and slash as opposed to the "friendly debate over cucumber sandwiches" genre. Kill lots of creatures whose only crime is being ugly (and wanting to kill you first) and then whip up your own adventures.

You know what's coming next if you've been paying attention. For the following games you'll save $6.00 off their normal price:

Air Assault Task Force - Because modern militaries rely on helicopters to deliver troops and not underground giant drill machines these troops are considered Air Assault. Crank up the Wagner and bring death from above in another superb modern warfare simulation from ProSIM.

ATF: Armored Task Force - Does not feature any type of public transportation. Does feature tanks though. More globe trotting fun in which yes, you blow the crap out of the enemy. Does an excellent job of reminding oneself of the little pleasures in life.

Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War - Tired of watching the news and seeing South Korea constantly being picked on by North Korea? Stand up for professional Starcraft players and take it to the DPRK!

The Falklands War: 1982 - The eighties was a simpler time, one in which men without head gear urged the world to safely dance. But not all folks cared for dancing. At the bottom of the world the British and Argentineans faced each other not in a dance-off, but in a battle of Exocets and Harriers.

The Star and the Crescent - Not a modern morality play about a Hollywood starlet and her disdain for crescent rolls, this is another simulation of excellence from ProSIM. Battle in the Mid-East in past and future conflicts.

Space HoRSE - Another game that doesn't feature mass killing. Or even precision killing. Space HoRSE (of course, of course) is a fast-playing economic game set in the future in space. All games should be set in space. Space is cool.

Dominions 3: The Awakening - You. Yeah, you, the guy who says he'll pick up Dominions 3 when it's not at full price. It's not at full price. So finally buy it so you can discover what the other five billion owners already know: this game motherbleeping RULES!!

So there you have them, all our titles on sale until June 25th. Right now there's no better time to stay indoors and play computer games. Really, what does going outdoors get you? The sun will burn you, bugs will attack you. You know what else happens outdoors? Wars. Traffic accidents. Oil spills. Pieces of falling satellites. Nothing good happens outdoors. So stay in, complete your Shrapnel Games library, and have some good clean discounted fun!
