Update: The Mac OS X version of Defend Your Castle is now free.

On the iPad version -

We've given input devices for the game a lot of thought. Ages ago, we had early discussions with a local company about bringing the game to public touch-screen kiosks, and I've had quite a few people tell me how fun the web-based version is to play on the smartboards they have installed in some schools here in Edmonton.

Tablets may be the present-day consumer-level device best suited to Defend Your Castle. When hardware became available and we started experimenting with porting the game to a larger touchscreen, it became apparent how fun it was going to be.

A larger touchscreen allows you to coordinate all ten fingers in repelling invaders, all while playing co-op multiplayer. Using all of your digits takes makes the game feel more engaging, something like playing classical guitar - and, to me at least, that's really satisfying.

Ultimately, it feels wrong to have the iPad version in the hands of so few. We're can't guarantee it will be free forever, but if you do really dig the HD version, you can support us by picking the game up for another platform like iPhone/iPod Touch, MacOS, WiiWare or, soon enough, Windows.

Get Defend Your Castle HD.

Built by Fiz at Q-Kmbr Games and published by XGen, Chicken Jockey 2, is the long-awaited sequel to an old favourite.

Complete goals and achievements, feed, breed and train your chickens, and strive to become the Ultimate Chicken Jockey!

Fiz and I used to build games together in QBasic over a decade ago before both jumping into Flash dev. Sadly, the code for such masterpieces as Space Veggies has long since been lost; you can thank us later.

Stick RPG 2 gets a entirely New Island!

Paper Thin City has just undergone a major expansion - construction crews have just finished work on a new area of the city complete with 10 new buildings. This expansion has pushed the 2 1/2 Dimensional economy into full swing, which means that there are 9 new professions to try your hand at. In addition, market leader Fine Lines Incorporated has released an arsenal of 18 new weapons, 2 new combat zones, and 2 new houses to own. The bizarro world XGen Studios of Paper Thin City has even released their first videogame; Castle Quest. Oh - and don't miss all the new quests that require your attention; collect items to construct and improve a deadly flamethrower, solve a murder-mystery, help an alien get back home and finally rid Paper Thin City of those disgusting sewer people!

You'll need Director's Cut to fully explore the new area and get the cool new items, but we haven't forgotten our loyal fans in the free-play faction; there are brand new things in the game for you, too! Director's Cut owners, keep an eye on your email inbox for the update. Everyone else, get right to it!
