Despite the (futile) efforts by the NSA to cover it up

Data Jammers: FastForward is now jamming on the Mac!

Yep, it's true! Thanks to Henry K's efforts beyond the call of duty, Jammers is finally available for Mac gamers via Steam (with other groovy game portals to follow - watch the skies). So let's get jammin'!

A casual game with fangs.
- Adam Niese, Pixelsocks

Data Jammers: FastForward is a continuously moving three dimensional driving and destruction game set within a retro wireframe world of impossible race tracks. Prowl twisting bitstreams amidst bizarre geometrical environments enhanced by otherworldly soundscapes as your nimble avatar encounters more dangerous denizens, hazards and boss guardians along the way!

Key features

Zen-inducing frenetic arcade gameplay
Arresting 3D visuals and audio
Mindbending race tracks
Increasingly challenging environments
New critters and hazards per level
Easy to learn and play
Brisk play sessions
Excellent replayability
Hands on tutorial
Supports game controller and keyboard

From the makers of Brainpipe: A Plunge to Unhumanity, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, Dr. Blob's Organism, Strange Adventures in Infinite Space and the soon to be released Infinite Space III: Sea of Stars!

The Digital Eel guys have done it again: another outrageously retro, tongue-in-cheek, weirdly beautiful, and very inexpensive video game. As if Brainpipe weren't enough, now it's Data Jammers: Fast Forward. What Atari might have produced if they had had a sense of humor and a better CPU. I don't normally flack video games, but these guys' imagination and polish consistently impresses me -- and there's only three of them.
- Ernest Adams, Facebook post

Data Jammers: FastForward is reminiscent of all that is good in the world. Or at least some of the things that are good in the world, like Tempest and speeding through cyberspace.
- Adam Smith, Rock, Paper, Shotgun

The colourful, vibrant wireframes, and hypnotic collage of abstract 3-D models screaming past at a million miles per hour is very satisfying on an aesthetic level. If ever there were calls for examples of videogames to be considered as legitimate art, Digital Eel's creations would be amongst the first I'd proffer.
- Steve Blanch, Bytten

What makes the game a real pleasure, however, are the two things as which Digital Eel always excels; the use of code to produce trippy graphics, and the excellence of the music. Playing Data Jammers is like being at a rave, with glowing Tron-like visuals and a danceable techno score; indeed, weaving and gyrating through the game feels a lot like dance as well.
- Greg Costikyan, Play This Thing!

10 light years and going strong, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space continues to transport players to the deepest strangest regions of the galaxy. Meantime, thanks to the Humble Store for believing in the game and for helping to continue the adventure! (There are still many space-happy gamers in orbit who haven't heard of Weird Worlds!)

Here's a cool thing: the Humble Store gives 10% of proceeds to charity. These are the good guys, folks. So be sure to check out Weird Worlds at the Humble Store. It's more fun than earthlings should be allowed to have!

Ripcord out.

The Steam MONSTER Summer Sale runs from today until June 21

June 3, 2015

Hello, starship captains! Today's update brings two big changes: Loadout Options and Ship Hull Upgrades.

The first allows you access to any ship systems and weapon technology that is considered "off the shelf" at your location. At nearly any home world that offers trade, you can click on a system or weapon slot on your ship and see what loadout options are available. The selection depends on the world, and changes over time as each race develops new technology. You may need to sell an item or a few to earn credit before you can take advantage of this. (Tip: if you haven't found any better drives after a while, check back at Hope!)

Ship hulls can be upgraded at the ship's origin world - Hope for Terran ships, Loryx for the Zorg, and so on. Simply go to the home world and select your ship to see if upgrades are available. Larger ships like frigates and destroyers become available as time passes - as well as new "advanced" versions of Terran military ships with additional rear-firing weapon mounts. These upgrades are also paid for by store credit, so bring something to trade!

Go here to see the full change list.
