06/26/2015 - Supreme League of Patriots Issue 1 Now Available on iTunes
SUPREME LEAGUE OF PATRIOTS ISSUE 1: A PATRIOT IS BORN, SUPERHERO COMEDY ADVENTURE, AVAILABLE NOW ON iTUNES

The First Episode of the Hilarious Politically-Incorrect Adventure Is Now Available for iPad

St. Louis, MO – June 25, 2015 – Don your cape and take to the skies, Phoenix Online Publishing and No Bull Intentions today announced the release of Supreme League of Patriots: Issue 1: A Patriot is Born for iPad! With your mask and secret identity secure, hit the streets of New York City in this hilarious politically incorrect superhero comedy adventure that Metal Arcade calls “a refreshing take on the genre” for just $3.99 on the iTunes store (
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id972447143?mt=8).

Poking fun at pop culture, politics, reality TV and more, Supreme League of Patriots combines classic point-and-click gameplay with a satirical and irreverent sense of humor. Join Kyle Keever in his quest to win a spot on the newest hit reality TV show, America's Got Superpowers. When a freak accident turns Kyle's alter-ego, the Purple Patriot, into his main ego and triggers real superpowers at the cost of his sanity (and good taste), Kyle's got a new mission to become the hero New York deserves, and definitely not the one it wants. Navigating a twisted world of vigilantes and villains with his cheeky and sarcastic sidekick Mel, Kyle's got a lot to learn about the world of superheroes! “The results are hours of laughs with dashes of clever satire and groaning,” says Examiner.com.

Key Features
  • Earn your spot (AKA cheat your way!) onto TV’s hottest new reality show
  • Fully-voiced satirical superhero antics
  • Discover, befriend and declare your enemies from the city’s zany and colorful cast of superheroes and archenemies
  • Tiered hint system to make the game as challenging as you want it to
  • Fantastic original soundtrack composed by Jake "Virt" Kaufman

A free demo version is also available now for the iPad (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id983090933?mt=8), and all three issues of the game are available for PC, Mac, and Linux on Steam, GOG.com, and the Phoenix Online Store (http://store.postudios.com/).

06/22/2015 - Announcing Project Cars 2
ANNOUNCING PROJECT CARS 2 – SIGN UP TODAY!


With over 10 years of heritage and pedigree making some of the world’s most memorable and successful racing franchises – such as GTR, Need For Speed, and Test Drive – Slightly Mad Studios once again pioneered and innovated in 2015 by launching the critically-acclaimed and best-selling Project CARS; a game wholly funded and created by a passionate community of racing fans from around the world.

With tens of thousands of players testing the game, giving feedback on it, and creating assets for it throughout development, Project CARS has been hailed as a true competitor to long-established stalwarts, and as the market leader in both visual fidelity and technical expertise.

With an existing schedule of
ON DEMAND content already underway to continue providing Project CARS with fresh new features, updates, and great things to play with throughout the year, Slightly Mad Studios now turns its attention to the future with the announcement of the continuation of the franchise with Project CARS 2. And once again, the sequel will be created, tested, and ultimately approved by you – the gamers - through the WMD Portal crowd-funding platform.

Continuing to innovate and dominate in the racing genre, Project CARS 2 aims to include the largest track roster ever with 50 unique locations and over 200 playable tracks – and introduces ‘loose surface’ racing with dirt, gravel, mud, and snow courses. On the vehicle side, new classes of Rallycross, never-before-seen Concepts, and Banned Race Cars will be included and players will be seamlessly connected with each other via Co-Op Career, Online Track Days, Broadcast eSports, and your own personal and customizable Test Track.

Signup to Project CARS 2 is open right now so head over to
wmdportal.com and see how you can participate in the continued evolution of the ultimate racing experience.
