Strange Adventures In Infinite Space Now Available For Free

Shrapnel Games and Digital Eel, perhaps best known to Mac users for the Infinite Space sci-fi games, are now offering the first title in that series for free. Strange Adventures in Infinite Space is now available as a free download on the company's site. Strange Adventures allows players to explore the mysteries of a universe in quick 20 minute or less play sessions.

Ernest Adams, noted game designer and one of the founders of the International Game Developers' Association called it "a perfect short game." Critics erected temples and worshipped its greatness. Fans adored it so much that they named their children after its most famous characters. Probably. Or maybe darling Zorg Tan Ru from Kalamazoo was just a strange coincidence.

What is "it"? Why, Strange Adventures in Infinite Space. Created, developed, and unleashed by Digital Eel the 2003 IGF finalist game was the predecessor to the 2006 IGF winning Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space and the upcoming board game, Eat Electric Death!

Up until now if one wanted to see the birth of the Infinite Space universe a monetary transaction was involved but those days are now over! Digital Eel, in their bid to attain Beatles-like popularity in the indie gaming world, has now made Strange Adventures in Infinite Space available for FREE.

Free. No check, money order, credit cards, or CODs accepted.

Strange Adventures in Infinite Space is twenty minutes (at a time) of pure retro sci-fi gaming bliss. Explore a randomly created universe, meet aliens, acquire artifacts in the name of scientific progress and stellar manifest destiny. If you're a fan of Weird Worlds take a trip to see where it all began. If you have yet to experience either game there's no better way to get your feet wet. Enjoy the free, full game and when that desire for more sears your soul be sure to check out the sequel, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space.

You're feeling pretty good right about now, aren't you? Sitting there with a grin on your mug, happy that you've just scored a really sweet game for nothing.
