They have released more than ten games during their tenure for Nintendo DSi, Wii, 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation Vita and for iPhone and iPad. The game they are currently working on is AiRace Speed.

Zen Studios has released a new table for their Zen Pinball platform which is themed around The Walking Dead franchise.

This is done by hitting certain areas in the table to make your choices. This is easier said then done of course.
Activision has released a sequel to Wipeout onto Android today. Appropriately named Wipeout 2, this new sequel features plenty of big balls for everyone to play with. Well to be honest there is more to this sequel than balls.
One of the original games, which also happened to be one of the first titles to be successful on the Ouya console, has received a new expansion today called Towerfall: Ascension. This new expansion comes with over 50 new arenas to fight your way through, murdering your friends along the way.
