To quote: Since we released Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess a few weeks ago we've had a lot of kind comments and great feedback on the game - we're super excited the game is now live and people are playing it!
The soundtrack for the game has gone down well so I'm really happy to tell you all we're releasing this as a free-download on the PlayStation.blog today!
All of the game soundtracks are based on iconic pieces of classic music given fresh life and played on the organ - the Duke's instrument of choice.
The first five tracks were composed by the talented Andrew Bertoni with the final two tracks from the excellent Dean Claydon. They've put together some special remixed and extended versions for this giveaway:
• "Toccata and Fugue in Demonic" (Bach: Toccata and Fugue in D minor) (right click and "save as" to download)

189w ago - Mediatonic Co-Founder & Creative Director Paul Croft has shared a video announcement showcasing Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess! for PS3 and PSP, which is available beginning today on PSN.
To quote: Today we're super pumped to announce that our first PlayStation Mini, Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess!, goes live today on the PlayStation Store!
For those who aren't familiar with the game, here's a short summary.
Monsters have (probably) stolen your princess! Those fiendish and misshapen fools have (as far as we know) made off with your true love – and they haven't even had the good grace to leave a shred of evidence to follow. Only sweeping accusations and devastating style can save her from the fate she will (possibly) face now!
Available exclusively from the PlayStation Store, MPSMP comes with a full story mode, six unique stages, awesome animated cutscenes and an incredible soundtrack the Duke himself would approve of. With 24 levels of monster pounding justice, this is (probably) the best deal ever.
Check out the trailer to see the game in action:
The game is available on both PS3 and PSP worldwide for the price of $4.99,...

April 22nd is later than we've announced previously - since I last posted we've been working closely with Sony to resolve a few issues with running the game on the PS3. These are now all sorted and we're super excited about the launch of the game!
202w ago - Mediatonic's Co-Founder & Creative Director Paul Croft has announced today that Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess! will be hitting PSP on PSN soon, as follows:
I'm posting here on the PlayStation Blog about Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess!, our brand new title developed specifically for the new PSP Minis service.
In the game the player controls a massively powerful (and slightly unhinged) aristocratic demon known as 'The Duke' who wakes up to discover his Princess is missing.
Without a single clue to go on, he can only assume that monsters were (probably) responsible, and sets out to track her down by beating up monsters largely at random in the hope that it will (somehow) reunite him with his beloved.
At the center of the game is the Story mode, which follows the progress of The Duke as he beats down monsters across six different levels in the quest for his Princess.
The real challenge of the game comes into play in Score Attack mode, which contains eighteen unique levels, each unlocked by breaking target scores in the preceding levels. The Duke is a flamboyant character who likes to reward himself based on how stylishly he managed to complete each level and destroy his opponent.
Through moving the Duke from platform to platform...
