Free Game Watch: Sins of a Solar Empire & Speedball 2: Tournament

Update 2: What a bloody mess. Anyone who did get a Sins key out of this: “They” are apparently de-activating all keys obtained through this promotion.

Update: Sorry, all. They’re all out of Sins keys, but Speedball keys remain up for grabs.

CD-Action, a Polish gaming magazine / website, seemingly have a lot of copies of Sins of a Solar Empire to give away. The same publication previously gave away copies of Speedball 2: Tournament – and still appears to be.

Bargain-hunting blog SavyGamer has all the details, with the Sins of a Solar Empire key working on Impulse, and the Speedball 2: Tournament key working on Steam.

Sins of a Solar Empire, the 2008 “RT4X” (Real Time Strategy eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate) game from Stardock, was met with critical acclaim, as reflected in the game’s Metacritic score of 87.

On the other hand, Speedball 2: Tournament received middling reviews, averaging out at 62 on Metacritic. By French developers Kylotonn, the game has fairly low production values. I’ve played it, and for free, I guess I can’t complain.
