Digital Eel Takes Home The
Excellence In Audio Award At The IGF!

BRAINPIPE’s Awesome Audio
Recognized!

Congratulations to Rich Carlson,
Iikka Keranen, and Phosphoros (collectively making up that extraordinary
independent game developer Digital Eel), who just nabbed top honors in the
Excellence In Audio category at the 11th Annual Independent Games Festival
Awards for BRAINPIPE: A Plunge to Unhumanity! Somewhere Jonathan Winters is
smiling.

BRAINPIPE: A Plunge to Unhumanity
uses the brand new Eelmix technology to deliver a transcendental audio
experience that transfixes, hypnotizes, and gently massages the listener. It’s
so good that it should win an award or two. And it has. You didn’t skip over the
first paragraph, did you?

BRAINPIPE: A Plunge to Unhumanity is
the latest game from Digital Eel. Published by Shrapnel Games and available as
an immediate download for both Windows and Mac at the recession friendly price
of $14.95, it is the very best endurance run game involving glowing glyphs that
you’ll ever play. Race through electric tunnels of cascading colors using a one
click control scheme collecting glyphs while avoiding a multitude of dangers.
Face ten levels of difficulty on your way to becoming something more than human.
A higher being? An immortal? A talking piece of luggage? Play the game and find
out for yourself!

Besides being recognized by the IGF
Awards BRAINPIPE: A Plunge to Unhumanity has been hailed far and wide for its
innovative and addictive gameplay. Bob Mandel of the Adrenaline Vault said of
it: "You get sucked into the mesmerizing setting immediately, and you will not
want to blink or turn away for even an instant." Not only that, he considered it
one of the top casual games of 2008. Eric Bailey feels "It is a gem in its
appearance, a virtuoso of sensory delight…" while Joseph Vanburen thinks the
game is "…a testament to Digital Eel’s sense of pushing the envelope in game
design and content."

If you have yet to have experienced
the joy of being uplifted by this wonderful piece of software please download
the demo today! Grab it from its official product page.

We’d like to remind those already in
possession of the full product that Digital Eel recently released a patch
bringing the retail version to 1.01. The patch corrects a joystick calibration
bug and can be downloaded from the product page.
