3rd February 2010, London, UK: This month, iPhone game development studio Origin8 are bringing a touch of February Freebie Fever to the iTunes App Store. As the anniversary of their breakout hit approaches, iPhone and iPod Touch gamers will be offered the chance to review the studio's year for free with a series of weekend give-aways.
Each Friday of the month Origin8 will drop the price of one of their games to free for the busy weekend period. Games earmarked for this offer include former UK top 10 paid app“Car Mania”; the cute and critically praised arcade-style“AirBear”; and“Sentinel: Mars Defense”, the classic sci fi tower defense game that turns a year old on the 19th February. Details of each weekend's deal will be announced via the company's social networking accounts on the day.
"The Sentinel: Mars Defense anniversary provides us with a great excuse to spread some love to our players, and it's a logical point for us to take a look back over an exciting year," said Sentinel designer and programmer Paul Jackman, "Our aim is to develop games that stand out for their high quality and we want to get them into as many hands as we can. The iPhone as a gaming platform has grown spectacularly over the past year - many current players won't have owned an iDevice at the time of the original Sentinel release, so we're giving them a chance to catch up with our back catalogue for nothing."
"We're not just looking backwards, of course," added team producer David Manley, "Apple's recent iPad announcement is great news for all App Store developers, and we have some more great products in the pipeline for release this year."
Origin8's February Freebie Fever promotion begins on Friday 5th February. Their full catalogue of games is available from the iTunes App Store at http://ax.search.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZSearch.woa/wa/search?entity=software&media=all&page=1&restrict=true&startIndex=0&term=origin8
