Start Your 2012 Saving With Shrapnel Games!!

Cary, NC, 11 January 2012

The holidays are over, the grind is back in full swing, and January is looking to be its usual bleak self. Time to settle in and enjoy the warm azure glow of your monitor while playing the very best in independent strategy and just plain cool titles from Shrapnel Games. And to help get you started from January 11 until January 23 all our titles are being discounted!

Take advantage of the sale to snag our latest release, Data Jammers: FastForward by Digital Eel for only $4.95. Experience a hallucinatory race to penetrate the deepest darkest reaches of the ‘net within a ‘net. Another trippy title, BRAINPIPE: A Plunge to Unhumanity is also only $4.95. For a few dollars more take on a serious wargame with the micro-title, Battle Group Commander, for only $9.95.

Traditional wargamers will appreciate such titles as War Plan Pacific and the Enhanced Editions of winSPWW2 and winSPMBT. All three titles are on sale for $34.95. War Plan Pacific is an exciting game that will remind gamers of the classic Victory in the Pacific. From Pearl Harbor to the surrender of Japan in a single session, War Plan Pacific plays fast yet retains a sense of history.

winSPWW2 and winSPMBT are tactical hex games that between the two games allow players to experience land warfare from the 1930s until 2020. With literally hundreds of individual scenarios, plenty of campaigns, and the ability to create more (both with a few simple clicks and with handcrafted precision), both games yield thousands of hours of gameplay.

Speaking of thousands of hours of gameplay let us not forget Dominions 3: The Awakening. On sale for Windows, Mac, and Linux for $47.95 this is the last fantasy wargame anyone would ever need. Featuring hundreds and hundreds of units, spells, and items, not to mention scores of playable nations and three distinct strategy-changing eras, Dominions 3: The Awakening is a game that can be approached in multiple ways and yield multiple strategies. Of course the icing on top of everything else is how mod friendly the game is.

If modding games is your thing there are plenty of Shrapnel titles that would be right up your alley. Everyone’s favorite Zorgs in space title, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space ($19.95), is easy to mod, as is the beer and pretzels conquer the world strategy title World Supremacy ($24.95). Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa ($19.95) is entirely based on the idea of being able to mod it out, with basic Windows applications allow wannabe dungeoneers the ability to create their own hack and slash adventures.

Hardcore strategy gamers looking for the very best in modern warfare simulations will appreciate the entire ProSIM line of games being on sale. BCT Commander ($14.95), Air Assault Task Force ($34.95), ATF: Armored Task Force ($22.95), The Falklands War: 1982 ($34.95), Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War and The Star and the Crescent (both $34.95). Another great serious title is the Age of Fighting sail game Salvo!, available for both Windows and Mac (with cross-play ability) for only $34.95.

Finally there are the lighter strategy games. Perfect for the beer and pretzels crowd, you have Bronze for $24.95 (and soon to be an officially licensed board game from Spiral Galaxy Games UK) and Air Command 3.0 for $34.95. Space HoRSE is only $24.95 and features terrific non-violent multiplayer action.

Remember the sale prices are in effect until January 23rd! For more information on any of the games, including checking out demos, be sure to stop by www.shrapnelgames.com and view our complete catalog. There you’ll find full details on the individual titles, bonus items, and links to purchase.
