Llamasoft are positively stoked to announce that a much-requested feature has been added to Gridrunner Revolution in the form of online scoreboards for all play modes. Users can sign up in-game to join the Llamasoft online scoreboards and rank themselves amongst players from all over the world. The online score tables are viewable both in-game and on the Llamasoft website.

We have spent a few weeks to create a robust and practical online scoreboarding system which will be used in every new Llamasoft release from now on. Register your profile once to have access to the system in all upcoming Llamasoft releases on any platform.

The updated version of the game containing the online score functionality is available right now. Existing users should just download a new copy of the game, uninstall the old version and install the new one. New menu options in-game allow users to register for and use the online scoring system.

Furthermore, in the spirit of the season, we are offering our games for an offer price which, if you haven't already got them, you'd be as crazy as a Scientologist to miss out on.

Both Gridrunner Revolution and Space Giraffe are now available for just $9.99 each.

Gridrunner Revolution is one of Metacritic's Best 40 games of 2009.

It features a graphically unique style coupled with gameplay which is enjoyable and accessible and which goes far beyond what appears at first glance to be simple shoot-'em-up action; all set to a pulse-pounding soundtrack created by the artists of Turbo Recordings.

Players learn that beauty is worth more than mere aggression, and that using the game's mechanisms creatively to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing results is what truly yields the best scores.

Scores which you can now compare with other players all over the world thanks to the new Llamasoft online scoreboards.

That such a game is available for less than the price of a chicken Vindaloo is quite remarkable.

Space Giraffe PC is quite simply one of the best and deepest abstract shooters ever made, and those who love it are truly passionate about it to the point where many list it amongst the best games of all time.

Players learn to push the boundaries of their perception in order to prevail in a game which leads them through astounding synaesthesiac vistas to entirely new and inordinately pleasing states of mind.

Discover for yourself why PC Gamer rated this game a "Must Buy" at 92% and why Space Giraffe PC is considered by many to be one of the most original and beautiful games ever. The PC release improves considerably over its Xbox 360 ancestor, featuring enhanced shader effects, extra levels, and sensuously accessible gameplay that will invigorate your senses and expand your mind right from the very first level.

For such a groundbreaking game to be available for less than the price of a couple of London pints represents outstanding value in both gaming and recreational procedural neuromodification.

Perhaps most incredibly, in a Galaxy-shaking event the likes of which has not been seen in this sector of the Universe since Great Lord Xenu started blowing up space ghosts with H-bombs in Earth's volcanoes 75 million years ago, Llamasoft has harnessed the power of Matter, Energy, Space and Time to bring you both these excellent and outstanding games for the seasonal sleighbell eggnog Rudolphtastic price of only $14.99 for a bundle of both games. That you can buy two of the best and most distinctive PC games of recent times, created by Llamasoft (founded in 1982, one of the longest-established software houses in existence, and still actually making software rather than simply trying to sueanyone who dares to use the words "llama" or "soft" in their games) for less than the price of a dodgy kebab and a tin of Red Bull after the pubs have kicked out but you're still pissed and hungry - it's truly one of the most outstanding bargains in the history of Mankind, and a true marvel of the modern age.

The new versions of the games are available from Llamasoft right now:

And will be available on Direct2Drive as soon as the new build goes live there (any time now; check the prices, when they are the new ones then the new build will be live there) and shortly on Steam too.

We would also like to mention that Turbo Recordings have released an excellent soundtrack album of the tunes from Gridrunner Revolution.

It's a great way to enjoy the music from the game even when you are not playing, and a great way to check out the work of some of the great artists on Turbo's books.

That's it for now. We would be most happy if you would spread these tidings of great joy far and wide, and if you spot any lost reindeer send them to me };-).
