Happy birthday to... Actually, it's looking more like it's OUR birthday! You can save $4-8 on some quality Shrapnel games today, compliments of Shrapnel Games for their 10 birthday. Keep reading for the huge list of games on discount. Looks like there're some pretty awesome games in there. With all these discounts lately, maybe I'll get a chance to buy myself a new game. (All the best games can be pretty expensive!)


Hampstead, NC, 09 July 2009

Ten years ago this month Tim Brooks, designer of 101st: The Airborne
Invasion of Normandy and other tactical combat PC games, was fed up
with the world of mainstream game development and retail shelfwhoring.
Listening to not only his heart but the tiny voice in the back of his
skull that sounded an awful lot like Maynard G. Krebbs, Tim decided to
do something about the situation. And so working tirelessly he created
his very own baseball diamond in his back yard. Unfortunately that
didn't really help with the whole computer games thing so he decided
to form his own independent publishing company, and thus Shrapnel
Games was born. And it was good.

From the humble beginnings of working on a single title to today's
extensive catalog of award-winning and critically acclaimed games,
Shrapnel Games has enjoyed a decade of success. The success comes from
not only the awesome developers we have the pleasure of working with
but all our wonderful customers over the years. If we were married
tradition says we should be giving tin or aluminum (Wait, really? Hey
look, I bought you a carton of aluminum foil, happy anniversary!) but
we figure you'd just hate us in the morning. So instead we're having a
sale. A sale may seem cold and impersonal, but realize that every
discount comes straight from our hearts. Cue the Bryan Adams mix tape.

The Shrapnel Games 10th Anniversary Sale runs from now until July 22,
2009. Save big bucks on the following titles:

some of our games away! If you've been waiting to purchase, strike now
and strike true! Remember, the sale only runs through July 22nd. Tell
your friends, tell your momma, tell it to the mountain!

Now just because the sale only lasts a short while doesn't mean we're
halting the celebrations. For the rest of the year we'll continue to
celebrate this first decade of business so expect to see some more
cool happenings in the near future.

Speaking of near future this quarter will see the release of Digital
Eel's starship combat board game set in the Infinite Space universe,
Eat Electric Death!. Yes, it has been delayed from its original slated
release period and we apologize for the inconvenience but appreciate
everyone's patience. To help alleviate some of the pain we've brought
back the discount on pre-ordering for the sale. Additionally, this
quarter will see our official online store, the Gamers Front, get a
facelift. Keep watching for a brand new e-store, bigger and better
than before!

To take advantage of our sale head on over to www.shrapnelgames.com,
check out the games that you're interested in--maybe download a demo
or two--and then click on the "Buy It" icon. Besides our collection of
amazingly inspiring independent strategy, war, and niche games for
sale we offer many full freeware titles to download for your gaming
pleasure so be sure to check those out too!

Shrapnel Games has been in business for ten years, but you've already
figured that out from the fact we're having the 10th Anniversary sale.
Recent releases include War Plan Pacific (Win), BRAINPIPE: A Plunge to
Unhumanity (Win/Mac), and Battle Group Commander: Episode One (Win).
Prepare for Electric Death, puny humans!
