Strange but true

Another oddly named game emerges from Digital Eel

Following on from their psychedelic Snakes-inspired game PlasmaWorm, the bizarrely named Digital Eel have released a demo version of their latest game - [insert cheesy 50's B-movie theremin sound here] Strange Adventures In Infinite Space. Set in the depths of space some time in the distant future, the game leaves you to "boldly blow up stuff where no one has blown up stuff before" while exploring strange new star systems randomly populated by a wide selection of planets, black holes, alien lifeforms and even the occasional useful item. A limited 4.75Mb demo version of the game featuring a single preset map can now be downloaded, while the full version complete with random maps, additional ships, weapons, aliens, planets and artifacts will be available to buy on CD-Rom from the appropriately named Cheapass Games some time next month. For more information, check out the Strange Adventures website. Related Feature - Plasmaworm released
