The ABC of Quarrel

Dundee, Scotland, March 25th 2010. After several months of silent running, digital toy boutique Denki has revealed the first footage of Quarrel, its highly anticipated new game.

You can find it on YouTube by subscribing to and following‘denkigames’, or by visiting:

Quarrel is designed for Xbox Live Arcade, and the company is hinting obliquely at other more‘breathtaking’ plans.

Denki took Quarrel busking last year and encouraged hundreds of people– from families, tourists and gamers, through to competitive strategy gamers and Scrabble players– to play the game to near universal acclaim. The feedback from these sessions was collated, considered and then Denki decided to make the game even more awesome.

Quarrel now includes the following embellishments:

-“More ways to play” - There are now THREE entirely new games modes for you (providing hours and hours of honest-to-goodness fun).

-“More platforms” - Surely. Though Denki are remaining tight-lipped on what these may be.

-“More characters, troops, maps, music and words” - Yes, no, there’s loads already, si senor and we have the best dictionary in there already.

-“More cowbell” - Ha ha. Xylophone, yes; cowbell, not so much.

-“Less timer” - Sorted.

Yes, Denki has revisited, revised and revamped the game. It now features a completely new single-player experience. The master funmakers have tinkered with and tweaked every aspect of the game to make it fast, fluid, fun and generally just spent the last few months turning the game into an even shinier example of lovely.

Gary Penn, Denki’s Guru of Game, said“I love a good Quarrel. I also love how I’m the best in Denki at playing the game. I suspect my journalistic grounding had a lot to do with that. I would imagine other journalists will both love and be nearly as awesome at the game as I am. We shall see :)”

Quarrel launch details will be revealed‘in due course’. Patience, friends…

Oh, and do feel free to enjoy the lovely new logo.
