Tim Brooks, President of Shrapnel Games, said, "This is the second game we are publishing both as a jewel case offering and as an electronic download. The jewel case product is available now, and the download version will be available on December 23rd. This allows those who want a physical product that option, but those wanting to save on shipping can just download the game from the Gamers Front."

Thunder Pack Platinum, the work of designer Derek DiBenedetto, is a four pack of strategy games, designed with replayability in mind. The games are:

Interstellar Trader

You do this by traveling from planet to planet in the galaxy, buying and selling items in the various marketplaces.

Detailed strategy medieval city simulation where you become an Overseer of 4 local cities recently founded. The King has given you the task of watching the cities, helping them grow and stepping in with assistance, army training for defense, and important decisions at crucial times to enable the cities to reach independence.


Deep, detailed strategy/board game where you step into the shoes of an underground revolution leader intent on overtaking the city from corrupt political influences. But the city police, rival gangs, judges and law enforcement officials have other ideas!
