Gratis Weekend for Gratuitous Space Battles

Steam News announces a free weekend is now underway for Gratuitous Space Battles, Positech's space strategy game. The game can be played at no cost between now and Sunday at 4:00 pm EST, and it is on sale for 75% off for those who enjoy themselves. Here's word on the game:

Gratuitous Space Battles combines the visual appeal of an RTS, with the addictive unit-placement and design gameplay from tower defense games. In GSB, the player does not control individual ships at all during battle. The ships fight to a pre-determined set of orders and formations given to them by you before the battles.

GSB casts you as supreme space admiral, tasked with the design of individual spaceships, and the composition of your fleet, as well as general orders of engagement. This is not a twitch-based real time arcade game like many an RTS, but a game of careful thought, planning and big-picture strategy. Huge space battles can be won or lost depending on just how cleverly you balanced the needs of defensive shielding and armor against the expensive punch of laser cannons and plasma torpedoes.
