    Hey guys,

    We are a week or two away from submitting our game to the app store. We're going to release our first game, 8-Bit Zombie! A cool 8-Bit, retro style 2-D zombie game, but with a twist.

    What's the twist, you may ask? 8-Bit Zombie has a really sweet, full-featured physics engine, for throwing around body parts and bloody limbs. Haha.

    Hey guys! We submitted 8-Bit Zombie to the app store earlier tonight so you can expect to see the game on the store in the next two to three weeks. It's time for some 8-Bit beastin', son.

    We have some new screenshots for you all:

    Hey everyone,

    Just a little update: our app got rejected twice! They were both stupid mistakes with the meta-data and then we also apparently made the rating too "soft" for a game of this "caliber."

    Anyway, know that 8-Bit Zombie is definitely on it's way now and should be out any day now!

    Haha no worries. We actually haven't decided yet if it will be free or pay, but most likely what will happen is that it will be free for the first couple of days and then be 99 cents thereafter. (we have to make money, too! haha)

    However, if the cost is too burdensome, I'm sure we could get you a promo code for the game since you love zombie games so much!

    Thanks undeadcow! We try! lol

    Haha totally man! The trick is unlocking stopping power and then getting the gold shotgun. Then the pixel-ass-kicking really begins...

    There aren't even any in-app purchases because we are so against that game model. We believe that players should pay for a game one time, not 5 five times. We actually went through 3 or 4 iterations of prices to make sure that the prices for market items are reasonable given the average currency made per game.

    Thus, don't be too worried about the money aspect.. It'll be fun enough to play until you have enough money to buy an item/upgrade/weapon/etc., and then it gets even more fun with each additional item because they help get more money plus help get a high score!

    Also, as a note for everyone, a trailer for the game may be coming out in the next few hours / days. Be on the lookout. :)
