September 27 th, 2011 : Los Angeles

It brings us great pleasure to announce that we’ll be collaborating with our good friends at Oddworld Inhabitants on special Trixel and Oddworld-related content, to be detailed in the near future.

We’ll announce specifics about the project in the next couple of months. In the meantime, Adept Games’ Creative Director Daniel Boutros had this to say about the upcoming collaboration:

 “I’m a big fan of the Oddworld universe games and team, and I’ve been wanting to work with them on something a little different for quite some time. I can’t wait to show people what we’re cooking up.”

Stewart Gilray of JAW LTD / Oddworld Inhabitants, had this to say…

“At Oddworld we’re always looking at new and interesting ideas in getting the universe out there. When Adept came to us with their ideas and thoughts for a tie in, there was no way we could say no.”

Additionally, the big Trixel update scheduled for this week has been pushed back until later in 2011. Details are below…
This update will be given away FREE to current owners, and will include…

  • New-improved re-worked art stylings.
  • Retina Display Art upscale.
  • New Music and Sound FX.
  • New, free, additional in-app gameplay content.
  • Downloadable Puzzle and Race The Clock packs.
  • Game Center Compatibility with online completion and score records.
 

Expect more collaborations to be announced as we update the app…
