Digital Eel Wants You To Play
With Their Bloxs, Blobs, and Worms! Three Digital Eel Classic Titles Available
Many years ago, at the dawning of
the new century, a trio of industry veterans gathered together to form the
ultimate independent triumvirate. Under the name Digital Eel they plotted to
storm the digital world with games of wit, ingenuity, creativity, and a healthy
dose of good ol’ fashioned fun. Deep in the bowels of their sprawling Seattle
Gamecommand (actual size may vary) they hammered away at the furnaces, carefully
crafting their first game.
In 2001 Digital Eel unveiled the
fruit of their labor and the world met Plasmaworm. Now, in 2008, Digital Eel is
making it available (along with two other classics from their award-winning
library of titles) to gamers everywhere for FREE!
Plasmaworm is the fiendishly
addictive arcade game of weird worms eating random probability eidolons in a
tank of otherspatial plasma. Wait, what happens where? Fret not, it’s a fairly
straightforward game that can be enjoyed by gamers young and old alike.
One or two players (on the same
computer, in either co-op or deathmatch mode) control a plasmaworm through
twenty increasingly difficult levels of play. The worm starts off as tiny
fellow, gliding merrily along in its pulsating plasma tank by your control, on
the prowl for the eidolons that randomly spawn. Players then guide their
plasmaworm to the eidolon, gobbling it up. With each probability snack the worm
grows longer. The object of each level is to devour a certain number of objects
without crashing into the walls, or yourself, which is usually easier said than
Plasmaworm also features several
cool elements not often seen in Snake-style games, such as shooter elements in
some of the levels, and an end game boss, the Plasmangler! While we wouldn’t
want to ruin the surprise of facing the Plasmangler, we will mention that it
involves a tentacled beak, multi-layer destruction, and Plasmoidians. You can
never have enough Plasmoidians in your game!
Plasmaworm provides gamers with the
signature Digital Eel gameplay; easily enjoyed in quick bites, but just as
readily enjoyed for hours at a time. Beguiling graphics and a hypnotic
soundtrack will captivate gamers, while a high score list will push them to new
limits. Plasmaworm even includes a full suite of editors that players can use to
create new levels, unleash new plasma, and even craft their own soundtrack!
Plasmaworm is available for Windows
and has very modest system requirements. Download the full game for FREE today
at… wait! Digital Eel has even more games for your downloading pleasure.

Big Box of Blox can best be
summed up as Tetris on acid. So crank up some Floyd and challenge yourself to
game modes such as Flaming Peelout, Blok Atak, Groink, Mushroom King and Asylum
Cubez. Enjoy mind-blowing visuals as only Digital Eel delivers as you smash and
squish boxes with six different game variants, special blox, ten levels of
difficulty while bopping along with eight far out music tracks.
Both Windows and Mac users can trip
on the Big Box of Blox.
Are you a gamer sick of blowing away
Nazis, terrorists, and aliens? Ever think there has to be something else to
shoot at? Does Digital Eel have the game for you…

Dr. Blob’s Organism, winner
in not one, but two, IGF categories (2004 IGF Innovation In Audio and Innovation
in Visual Art), is a game about shooting one-celled organisms in a petri dish.
Think of it like the old arcade game Tempest, only with much squishier targets.
Blast blobs over twenty levels, using ten different power-ups. Three difficulty
levels, bonus levels, and five special blob abilities will keep you coming back
for more protozoan destruction. Like you’ve come to expect from Digital Eel
gameplay is easy to pick up but a challenge to master.
