As you may remember, the Kotaku offices were invaded by a horde of awesome members of the Kotaku community bearing gifts. Turns out the gifts weren't just for us — Kotaku Kristmas Project leader Chuloopa actually gathered up loads of extra stuff to giveaway to Kotaku readers, today he's giving away copies of Space Pirates and Zombies!
Take it away Chuloopa!
Ahoy there, my brain-loving astronauts! It is I, your friendly neighborhood Chuloopa!
Today is a glorious day!
Why? Because thanks to the good people at MinMax games i have 5 Steam codes for the breakout hit Space Pirates and Zombies, or the acronym i love ever so much, S.P.A.Z!
Don't know what Space Pirates Versus Zombies is all about? That's ok, i'll let the good people at MinMax break it down for you...
IN A NUT SHELL At its core, Space Pirates and Zombies is an action based, skill oriented, top down space combat game. It's similar to the ones we knew and loved in years past, but now using full physics simulation and modern graphics for those oh so pretty explosions. But as you dig deeper, SPAZ becomes much more.
KEY FEATURES -33 ships to research, build, outfit and pilot. -70 unique components to discover and customize your fleet's performance. -Totally physics based combat system. -Fight Zombie infestations, battling a full zombie ecosystem comprising four stages of un-life. -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.
Now, i don't know about you guys - but that sounds like more fun than i can poke an astro-stick at!
