I love working with other indie game devs. We never need to talk to lawyers or draw up ten page (or 40 page!) contracts. We just come up with ideas on how to work together and then just do it. It’s how I’d love all business to be…

So Positech games (me!) and the guys at MinMaxGames (makers of SPAZ) got together and agreed a deal for the next seven days. That deal is very simple. You buy Gratuitous Space Battles, and you get Space Pirates and Zombies for free. If you prefer to think of it as buying SPAZ and getting GSB free, go ahead, it’s a free galaxy.

So what are these games?

At its core, Space Pirates and Zombies is an action based, skill oriented, top down space combat game. Check out the site:

and the video:

Gratuitous Space Battles is an unusual hybrid of RTS and management games, set in space. The big twist is that the battles are hands-off, the game is about starship and fleet design and positioning.

    Hello! Wanted to know if users who already have Gratuitous Space Battles – will they recieve Space Pirates and Zombies? Or you get the second game ONLY when buying Gratuitous Space Battles?

    No, it’s a limited time bundle. It’s not an entire game being sudenly made free.

    Strikes me as a good idea, I’d be interested to know how well it does when all is said and done. Shame I already have both games.

    Best of luck in the endeavor.

    Just wanted to say thanks for writing about SPAZ. The first time I seen it I was a little put off by the “Space Zombies”. But after digging a little deeper into the story of the game, I decided I had to buy it. The best $9.99 I’ve spent in a long time. More importantly, MinMax now have a fan and I will be awaiting there next project with much anticipation.
