Space Pirates and Zombies
« on: May 11, 2011, 12:11:57 AM »
Space Pirates and Zombies (AKA SPaZ) is a space exploration/conquer game similar to EV Nova, or Starscape. If you like those game, then you need to check out SPaZ. I just played through the demo, which took me just under 2 hours and I think it's really fun! I could have finished the demo faster than that but I was having too much fun doing non-essential stuff.

If the game looks interesting to you you can see more info on the Space Pirates and Zombies website and you can also pre-order it for 25% off now on Impulse.

Space Pirates and Zombies is a mix of the deep old school space adventure genre with modern physics, action and graphics technology.

  • 33 ships to research, build, outfit and pilot
  • 70 unique components to discover to customize ship performance
  • Totally physics based combat system
  • Explore a persistent randomly generated galaxy containing hundreds of star systems
  • Freedom to explore the galaxy and take on challenges at your own pace
  • Aid, flee, or exploit the warring factions in each star system
  • Change the balance of power in any system by interacting with its unique event system that responds to player activity
  • Carefully spend your hard earned research points on hundreds of upgrades across 15 categories

Here's a screenshot and some videos if you're a "show-me" type person:

And here's a review, which is basically some guy playing through the first half of an early version of the demo.





The narrator of the game has a new preview up of the beta version (which you can play if you pre-order on Impulse):

I watched the first video, but it didn't really inspire me much. I still have no idea what the game is. That's just as well though, as I should be playing games anyways... But man... The name is way cool. Love that - SPaZ. :) Almost makes me want to try it just for the name!

for those who prefer their games on Steam, SPAZ will be available in less than a week.

They told me that if you buy it from them or on Impulse you can use the same key to redeem it on Steam. So I already "pre-ordered" it for 25% off on Impulse and I get instant access to play the beta. :Thmbsup:

I bought it a while back on impulse and had quite a bit of fun with it - more than with space rangers 2 for example

Interesting to know the key will work on steam :)

it seems that the devs are working on integrating keys bought from other distributors into Steam as well. the other choices are Gamersgate and BMT Micro. so one can buy from any of the three and play in Steam.
