Spacebase DF-9 free to Hack ‘n’ Slash owners, and vice versa

Spacebase DF-9 has hit version 1.0, and to celebrate Double Fine is offering fans a neat cross-promotion.


Spacebase DF-9 was conceived of as one of those Early Access projects that just keeps growing and growing and growing, but it didn’t work out the way Double Fine intended.

As such, it’s decided to end Spacebase DF-9 development (but not ongoing support) with the latest release.

That build hit Steam this week – there’s a launch trailer below – and the simulation sandbox has dropped in price to $20.01, with a further 40% off during launch week.

Double Fine is also offering SpaceBase DF-9 in a bundle with its other “Amnesia Fortnight turned Indie Funded” game, Hack ‘n’ Slash – but if you own one, you already own the other.

“As a bonus for the customers who have supported us thus far, anyone who already owns the game gets a free copy of Hack ‘n’ Slash and anyone who owns Hack ‘n’ Slash gets a free copy of Spacebase,” Double Fine wrote on its website.

This may help smoother the ruffled feathers of those who bought Spacebase DF-9 at full price, or expecting a much more extensive feature list, although probably not those of the super loyal Double Fine fans who already bought both games.
