Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is a grand space opera that will take you from a down and out starship captain to an amazing intergalactic hero whose renown travels light speed ahead of you!

Like things that you can reach out and touch? Go for the physical copy. Trapped in Antarctica, studying how humanity was a big cosmic mistake of the Old Ones? Well, you may want to grab the downloadable copy.

Either version provides you with the same fast-playing, highly addictive single-player game that folks around the world are falling in love with. Choose from three different mission types and explore the uncharted space realms of Sector Prime in ten, twenty, or thirty year tours of duty. Discover a catalog of items to enhance your ship with, gather new lifeforms, explore a multitude of worlds, battle exotic aliens, and face numerous surprises, all in under thirty Earth minutes! With each adventure created anew, space truly is infinite. And if you ever need a break from meeting and greeting aliens, you can fire up the battle simulator found in Weird Worlds and skip everything but the plasma and vortex destruction in deep space!

When you're ready to experience the full game in all its glory, stop by the Shrapnel Games e-store, the Gamers Front at, and snag either the physical copy or the download version!

Set in a randomly generated universe of endless possibilities, this single-player experience will let you explore new worlds, meet exotic aliens, discover black holes, witness the deaths of stars, encounter drifting space hulks that promise untold riches or untimely death, and much, much more! And all this happens in under thirty minutes or less!

Although quick to play, Weird Worlds boasts a deep, feature-rich system that ensures each session is as fresh as the first play. Players start off with their choice of one of three ships to explore the universe with, each ship completely customizable through the acquisition of new components, either via trade or encounters. The majority of the game takes place turn-based style on the gorgeously rendered star map (always newly generated each game), and uses a simple one-click system that even your grandmother can quickly master. When your starship encounters hostile aliens the action moves to real-time, and while players have dozens of weapons and tactics at their disposal, the combat system manages to provide this great depth while still maintaining the highly intuitive system of play found elsewhere in the game.

And though it would practically take a lifetime sailing amongst the stars to experience everything that Weird Worlds has to offer, the game never has to stop thanks to the moddability ease. Gamers will find that with a little artistry and virtual elbow-grease they can take Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space into an amazing array of new directions, and truly go where no man has gone before!

Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space will provide you with countless hours of challenging gameplay, as you create your own tales of daring do and high adventure in the cold reaches of outer space. With scores of weapons, encounters, artifacts, goodies, and mysteries you'll be lured by the siren call of exploration to push yourself further and further with each session. Find out if you have what it takes to be a star-hopping galactic hero in Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space!

Weird Worlds: Return To Infinite Space is the staggeringly brilliant follow-up game to the original, epic coffee-break game of space exploration, Strange Adventures In Infinite Space. Designed for Windows, the sequel is everything you enjoyed about the first game, along with a whole parsec or two of new stuff guaranteed to make even a Vulcan get excited. We're talking gorgeous new graphics, amazing new encounters, even more challenging combat, and more secrets than the strange guy down the hall who always wears that stained raincoat^Å

Imagine it's the future and you're the captain of your own starship (which is one of three possible designs). Imagine now that you could become rich and famous by taking said starship out and plying the unknown space lanes of the infinite universe. The catch is that you only have a limited amount of time. So you do just that^×explore the universe-- and along the way you discover strange new lifeforms, gather unique artifacts from previously uncharted worlds, and battle fiends from beyond time and space. And you do all of this in under thirty minutes. And never even double-click once.
