Earlier this July, League of Evil [Free] creator Ravenous Games bumped the price of League of Evil back to its normal-ish tag of $1.99. The studio has once again fiddled with the price, though I’d imagine the new one won’t be the cause of too many e-groans. For the next 24 hours the game is $0. Free, guys! Free!
For those of you not in the know, League of Evil is the App Store’s rough equivalent of Team Meat’s imaginative, but sadistic action platform game Super Meat Boy. Boasting tons of levels, an fantastic lo-fi presentation, and a lot of challenge, League of Evil was an easy recommendation for us to make. At this price, it’s sorta a steal.
We contacted Ravenous on the Twitters to hear exactly why it decided to cut the cost of the game. I mean, who knows? Ravenous could be celebrating a staffers’ birthday over there and if so, we want in on the back-slapping and cake. In the meanwhile, though, I guess we’ll accept the free game.
UPDATE: Shucks, looks like it’s just a chart move. “We are just looking to get some more exposure," Ravenous told me via Twitter. “Indies are getting buried when lacking marketing even though the game is good!"
