Did you know that Memorial Day in the U.S. started after the American Civil War? Microids and Anuman Entertainment did, and that’s why you’ll find The Bluecoats: North vs. South (Our Review) available for $0.99 on May 28. This sale will apply only to the iPhone/iPod Touch version, however.
CGMatic Co. were in touch this week to let us know their uber-stylish runner/slicing mashup ChickenBreak(Our Review) just received its first major content update. Included are new kick animations for your jailbreaking chicken, an option to skip lower-difficulty sections, new power-ups and more coin-garnering opportunities to purchase them.
Watch This Space
The team at Kukouri Mobile are steadily making headway with Tiny Troopers and have started a blog in the leadup to the game’s release. There they give a little more insight into the game’s inspiration and announce a PC/Mac release in addition to the iOS edition. Check out our hands-on preview of the game and our studio interview — this is definitely one to watch out for.
Videos of the Week
Things are really getting down to the wire for Aoineko Studios (obligatory interview here), which has reached 80% funding for Kitaru‘s Kickstarter campaign with just over a week left to go. Team Aoineko are pulling out all the stops, literally whipping out some ninja moves in test battle footage you can find as the first video in this week’s gallery. Check out the full collection of live interviews and outtakes at their Kickstarter updates page.
Also check out an environment flyover from Breach Entertainment’s Shardlands, an upcoming puzzle adventure game. We’ll be keeping an eye on this one over the coming months.
