Celebrate TikGames/Creat Studios Dedicated PSN Publisher Page with a Half-Off Sale!

Scott Hyman's Avatar + Posted by Scott Hyman on Mar 30, 2010 // VP of Publishing, Creat Studios

And just when I thought I was out…you pull me back IN! While I’m confident that you’re all much too busy playing Wakeboarding HD and Hamsterball to focus on anything else, I have even more cool news for you that I simply must share.

TikGames/Creat Studios is proud to announce the grand opening of our new, dedicated PlayStation Network publisher page! (Here is where you imagine thundering applause, blaring trumpets and a cascade of confetti.) After launching our eighth and ninth PSN titles last week, the great, hard-working folks at PlayStation provided us with our own special place where you can always go to get our latest and greatest new games, videos, themes and wallpapers. And if you did miss anything along the way, it will be there too.

Mushroom Wars 01 Smash Cars PSN

Now, I know what you’re thinking as you’re shaking our hands and congratulating us…what’s in it for me? So glad you asked! Actually, we want to congratulate YOU, since we could never have been able to get this far without you. You deserve a little something for helping us make so many games that we had to build a new digital space to put them in.

When the publisher page launches on Thursday, April 1, our first seven titles will be on sale for 50% OFF for two weeks! Never got around to trying Magic Orbz? Grab it for $4.99! Have you wondered what all the fuss was about with Smash Cars? You can’t go wrong at $7.49! Are you curious about all the critical acclaim for Mushroom Wars? It’s a steal at $4.99. Cuboid, Mahjong Tales, Interpol and Digger HD are also available for $4.99 each for the duration of the sale.

Magic Orbz Cuboid

Now you can fill in all of your TikGames/Creat Studios gaps in your PSN collection! No longer must your list of PSN titles remain incomplete. And don’t worry… there’s plenty more on the way. TikGames/Creat Studios is devoted to PlayStation Network like nobody else, and we can’t wait to show you what’s just around the corner.

Until then, thank you again from everyone here at TikGames and Creat Studios. We love what we do, and we can’t do it without your support. Please let us know what you think of all the games in our catalog, and what else you would like to see.

Interpol is a ‘find-hidden-objects’ based game, right? My wife loves those types of games.

nYcFrEeWiLL, take a chill pill. Sales happen. Are you going to barge into the local K-Mart on a rampage every time they have a clothing sale, just because you bought your clothes at full price? Get over yourself, and grow up. These sales will seriously help boost their overall sale statistics (and net profit), as well as expose the developer to an audience who might not have given their games a try before. It’s not all about you sometimes.

Anyway, to be on-topic: I’m glad to see this sale happening, I have been holding off on Cuboid for some time and can’t wait to try it out. Hamsterball also looks like a hilariously good time, so you can expect a sale on that as well. Thanks for your support, and it’s great to see such a dedicated developer interacting with the community. Seeing you guys reply to our comments is great!

nYcFrEeWiLL82 if you buy it first you get it first. Some of those games came out LAST YEAR and you’ve gotten to enjoy them the whole time. If you don’t think you got your $10 worth, then yeah, wait for sales. That said, EVERYTHING IN ANY STORE, digital or Wal-Mart, goes on sale at some point. If you were never aware of that, then I’d suggest opening your eyes; this is nothing new.

Creat/Scott, thanks for the deals and getting those of us who were mildly interested at first to put down a bit of coin on an impulse buy and a chance to get new fans of the development studio. I’ll probably be waiting for a sale on Hamsterball ;)
