We haven't talked about a game going to Kickstarter for funding in awhile but today a new title is looking for funding and it looks very promising. Rogue Wizards RPG is the game and it is being developer by Spellbind Studios. This is their first game that will also be released onto multiple platforms (Android, iOS, PC) but the biggest aspect about this Kickstarter campaign is that it has praise from some seriously big people in the game industry: the creators of Diablo, Torchlight, Left 4 Dead, and Marvel Heroes.

This week, it has been announced, that a new game from the Ubisoft Shanghai Studio will arrive next week. The game is called The Bot Squad: Puzzle Battles. It will arrive in the Play Store October 16th.
The next installment into the Reckless Racing franchise will be heading to Android later this month.

That doesn't mean that they won't be publishing it, but for whatever reason it seems like that might be up in the air right now.

Halfbrick's first big hit, Fruit Ninja, has been out for quite a long time now. Even to this day it is still a pretty fun game but that doesn't mean Halfbrick hasn't been working on improving it.
