Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is a hybrid science fiction space adventure and strategy game set in the plausibly implausible universe of Digital Eel's critically acclaimed computer game, Strange Adventures in Infinite Space (SAIS).

SAIS players will appreciate that the core gameplay elements remain essentially the same (intelligent random universe generation; one-click interface; turn-based movement; real-time starship combat; etc.), however, Weird Worlds is not simply a remake of SAIS. Noooo...

The universe of Strange Adventures in Infinite Space has expanded in both size and depth. Whereas the tag line for SAIS was "Explore the galaxy...in 20 minutes or less!", the Weird Worlds motto might be "Explore the galaxy...in 20 minutes or more!" Weird Worlds is bigger, prettier, more detailed, deadlier and completely extendable so modders can create their own strange adventures to share with friends and other Weird Worlds players.

With surprising new mysteries, threats, ship types, weapons, artifacts and lots of disgusting and inscrutable aliens, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space will tempt and challenge gamers to explore ever further, take bolder and bolder risks and create their own legends of high adventure among the stars!

Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, the original award-winning space science fiction roguelike-like, is back, shipshape and starbound with a spiffy new version 1.30 update and a new low price!

Weird Worlds is a hybrid roguelike game of space exploration, adventure and starship combat set within a peculiar region of the galaxy known as the Purple Void. Each time Weird Worlds is played, an instant space opera is generated, but unlike other games of its roguelike kind, it plays to its conclusion in less than thirty minutes.

With its combination of humor, roleplaying, adventure elements, non-linear exploration and starship battle tactics, Weird Worlds emphasizes variety, surprise and replayability. Features also include a unique turn-based based movement system, real-time starship combat, otherworldly sound and music, full color graphics and access to all starships in the game via a robust combat simulator.

Porting seemed easy enough, but for such a small indie game, who knew it would get this type of love. Well, I'm glad it did.

The mission breifing music is broken on my system, it plays about the first 2 seconds of the song, then loops endlessly until you tell it to continue.

Not a bad bug, but really , really annoying when you are trying to read something.

No. It's a high quality, indie space opera. It focuses on the engine's flexibility for mods.

First off, let me say that Indie developers are the foundation of all PC gaming. Even when there are giant like EA and Ubisoft around, they would be so giant if it weren't for the little guys. Graphics Weird Worlds uses a custom 2D overhead engine. While simplistically using sprites instead of the usual polygon, it maintains some level of eye candy to fill fans heart with joy. Sound The audio is not bad. Not good, but not bad. A little flat, kind of monotonous, but unless you are specifically listening…
