Megafuzz Releases a game per week for four weeks
Danish Megafuzz, who have previously released “Spoiler Alert” to great success, announced this week that they will be releasing 1 game every week for 4 weeks, starting September 14th this year.
Why, you may ask? Well, Megafuzz released Spoiler Alert over a year ago, and since then, the small studio have been working on yet-to-be-announced “bigger titles”. To take a short break from these larger projects, the team has therefore decided to release a new game every Monday for the next month, and will be released on both iOS, Google Play, and Amazon simultaneously.
“I have no idea what I’ve just gotten us into, but the next month will be interesting either way…”, the team says.
