[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Four top indie developers have clubbed together to create a simultaneous price drop across their games.  Rodeo Games (creators of the stunning turn-based action game 'Hunters'), Sarah Northway (creator of the zombie-apocalypse classic 'Rebuild'), Full Control (developers of the excellent 'Tactical Solider: Undead Rising' and recently released Frontline Tactics) and Red Wasp Design (creators of the tentacle-tastic 'Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land') all flipped the sale switch on their tactical mobile games at midnight and plan to leave the low prices on over the weekend. 

All four games are well regarded strategy gems, so this is a great opportunity to stock your device full of enough tactical action to last until the apocalypse. Tomas Rawlings of Red Wasp Design said, “We're really pleased to be part of such an august line up of games.  I've got all of them on my iPod so I speak from personal experience they are all well worth getting and with the sale on – a complete bargain!”

The sale ends Sunday, so best get downloading now! Here's the skinny on these price drops:

Rebuild on iTunes (universal iPhone, iPad, iPod touch), Google Play (Android os2.3+) & on Amazon Appstore (Android & Kindle Fire) - normally priced at $2.99/£1.79 will be $0.99/£0.69 for the sale.

Call of Cthulhu (The Wasted Land) on iTunes (universal iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) and Google Play normally priced at $3.99/£2.99 will be $1.99/£1.19 for the sale.

Hunters: Hunters: Episode One & Hunters: Episode One HD for iOS will be on sale for $0.99/£0.69 each.  Also the new Hunters 2, also iOS is also on sale for $0.99/£0.69!

Tactical Soldier – Undead Rising: Universal iOS on iTunes  and its second campaign for iOS are normally sold for $4.99 and $3.99 respectively. Both will be on sale for an amazing $0.99/£0.69 each.
