40w ago - Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow unveiled a new Skullgirls update today which includes a free character and stage with details below.
To quote: Last week, Lab Zero Games, the new developer of Skullgirls, started an Indiegogo campaign to keep the game growing with the addition of new characters.
The results have simply blown us away – our amazing fans raised $150,000 to fund Squigly, our first DLC character, in under 24 hours. And now, a week later, we've more than doubled that and are well on our way to funding a second character.
So sometime this summer, all owners of Skullgirls will be able to download Squigly free! Not only will you get this awesome, parasite-infested opera singer to play with, you'll also get her story mode and a new stage.
In addition to Squigly's stage, we'll also be developing a new stage, the River King Casino, that will be also be released free. Check out this early concept sketch:
I did say it was early. But in the coming weeks, you'll see that rough sketch turn into a beautiful, hand-painted 3D stage.
In addition to an all-new track by Castlevania: Symphony of the Night composer, Michiru Yamane, this stage will feature our "Patron Saint" contributors'...

42w ago - Sony Director of Emerging Platforms Chris Mahoney has announced that OMG Zombies is the final weekly free PS Mobile game available today!
Below are the details, to quote: It seems people can't get enough of the undead. Laughing Jackal's OMG Zombies – the last of our six free PS Mobile games - casts you as the sole survivor of a police team that has been attacked by (you guessed it) zombies. Your mission: tear through hordes of zombies across a maze of levels, and escape the city.
Your progress in this game depends on the amount of chained combos you get from killing zombies. This game is an upgraded version of the OMG-Z game that was released by Laughing Jackal as a PS mini back in 2011.
There are weapon upgrades, branching levels, rewards, and various zombie types to encounter. This game is the easiest - and safest - way to take out zombies.
PS Vita owners will be able to download OMG Zombies for free on the PlayStation Mobile section of PlayStation Store.
Owners of PlayStation-certified devices (see full list here) can obtain it through the PlayStation Mobile Store - click here for full instructions.
We hope you enjoyed our six weeks of free PlayStation...
44w ago - Sony Director of Emerging Platforms Chris Mahoney has announced today that Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender is free this week on PlayStation Mobile.
Below are the details, to quote: Normally, you wouldn't expect cats, milk, action and water to go together. But in the case of PlayStation Mobile's fourth free game give away, it does. Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender is available for free this week.
This action-oriented, side-scrolling shooter puts you in charge of a team of cats whose mission is to search the depths of the oceans for massive reserves of tasty milk buried underground. This game is a side-scroller's dream and reminds gamers of the intense action, cool music, and colorful graphics of the 16-bit gaming era.
The founder of Tikipod, Dugan Jackson, had this to say about what influenced him in designing Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender for PlayStation Mobile.
A lot of games from my younger years certainly have influences on Aqua Kitty. Amiga games like Turrican, Rainbow Islands, New Zealand Story - as well as late '80s arcade games such as R-Type, Raiden, Mr Heli and In The Hunt - all great examples of fantastic pixel art design which have fed back into my own art style over the years.
47w ago - Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Paul Sullivan has announced today that they will be offering a free PlayStation Mobile Game every Wednesday for six weeks!
To quote: We're still in a giving mood long after the holidays have come and gone. To prove it, we're giving away six PlayStation Mobile games. Each week for the next six weeks, you'll be able to pick up one PlayStation Mobile title for free - that's a new free title each week.
To kick off this party we needed to find a title with a lot of punch, and we couldn't think of anything more appropriate than Samurai Beatdown. This fast-paced, side-scrolling slash-em-up pits your samurai rhythm skills against waves and waves of evil demons.
Download the game for free from the PlayStation Mobile Store on your PS Vita or PlayStation Certified Device. It's free now, so be sure to jump in and pick up your copy today.
