CHICAGO, Ill., December 10, 2012 – Critically acclaimed app, The Curse, is now available for free in the App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore for a limited time.

The Curse puts players to the puzzle-solving test with a gauntlet of 100 difficult logic puzzles to solve to stop the villainous Mannequin who was accidentally freed by players. For a very limited time, anyone from iOS, Android or a Kindle Fire will be able to download the puzzle game with a narrative twist, for free.

“I would hate to miss out on the frivolous holiday festivities,” mused Mannequin, antagonist of The Curse. “So, I have decided to offer you the greatest gift imaginable. Me.”

The Curse has picked up numerous awards and high review scores from around the world since releasing including:

-       Gaming App of the Day (8/24) – Kotaku

-       “5 Stars” – Android Apps Magazine

-       Editor’s Choice – 148 Apps

The Curse was co-produced by mobile developers Toy Studio and Mojo Bones. More information about The Curse, including videos and swcreenshots can be found at
