London 24 April 2014

Are you a fan of indie games? Love classic platformers (especially ones with a bit of history)? Get a kick out of mind warping puzzlers?  Then Canyon Capers and CHIP are for you!  Both indie developed, both from UK micro indie teams.  Both great games!

CANYON CAPERS

Do you have fond memories of playing old style platform games? Games that didn't require having to learn a one hundred button combo to play it successfully?  If so, Canyon Capers has got your name on it!

Developed by Crazy Moo Games, Canyon Capers is a retro style arcade platform game for all ages, created by the authors of the 1992 original.  You will rely on your wits; your memory and at times the seat of the pants twitch gaming.

CHIP

Developed by Coatsink Games, CHIP is an isometric puzzle game with robots, electricity and fancy dress! The player must help recharge CHIP - a plucky little red robot - who has been imprisoned by the nefarious villain, Rust.

In addition, this week sees the next two releases from the Funbox range of classic gaming titles

Realms of the Haunting - A classic first person shooter with a great Metacritic score, first released by Gremlin in 1997.

Street Racing Syndicate - The PC version of the 2004 Street Racing classic.

All four titles will be released via DRM free master and Steam key.

Canyon Capers and CHIP release on Friday April 25th on Steam and all other leading digital retail sites with an SRP of $6.99 / €6.99 / £4.99 / RUB149

Realms of the Haunting and Street Racing Syndicate release today (Thursday April 24 th) on Steam and all other leading digital retail sites with an SRP of $9.99 / €9.99 / £6.99 / RUB249

Each release is accompanied by a selection of retail promotional activities across all key digital retailers.
