Laughing Jackal’s Biggest Ever Day


BRAINTREE, UK – 17 th August 2011

Hi Everyone.

Today is Laughing Jackal’s Biggest Ever Day as they are releasing 3 games on PlayStation Network!   The first is, of course, the amazing Cubixx HD , which Laughing Jackal blogged about yesterday.  You can also get a great overview of the game over on the Official PlayStation Blog.

Cubixx HD is released on the European PS3 PlayStation Store for the low, low price of just £6.29/€7.99, with it’s SCEA release date to be confirmed.

Laughing Jackal are also releasing the first of the legendary 16m-selling Fighting Fantasy series of gamebooks to make it to PlayStation, as Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death comes to PlayStation Minis for their European fans for £3.49 before appearing on the SCEA store next week for $4.99.

They’ve recently run a fascinating interview with Steve Jackson, the co-creator of the Fighting Fantasy series. Part one of this interview can be seen here and part two can be found here.  Later this week they’re going to be releasing details of how you can win some amazing prizes including the very book we used when making the Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death PlayStation Mini, which has been signed by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone.

Last but by no means least, the incredible Zombie Exploding Chain Reaction action of OMG-Z is now on general worldwide release for just £2.49 / $3.49!  OMG-Z has been gathering some amazing reviews some of which can be seen here and on the reviews tab here.

So, why not follow PocketGamer’s advice and: “ ...go and grab this puzzler with brains now”, so you can see what made PSP Minis say: “ It’s a perfect pick-up-and-play game and also a recommendable game in which to lose yourself for hours and hours.”

Established in 2005, Laughing Jackal are the developer of PlayStation minis such as Du æl Invaders, Vibes, Ace Armstrong vs. the Alien Scumbags, Stellar Attack and Cubixx.  We have just released a PlayStation minis conversion of the Fighting Fantasy series of Choose Your Own Adventure gamebooks, as well as the critically acclaimed OMG-Z, a chain reaction shooter for PlayStation Minis. Our first PlayStation®3 game, Cubixx HD, out now on the PSN.
