10/14/2015 - Arcade Token Mailing Update

Arcade Token Mailing Update 2015


webassets/Token_Mailing.jpg

It has been several months since we first announced our 2015 Arcade Token Give Away. Since that time we have been busy packaging coins, stuffing envelopes, and checking addresses. We are finally ready to announce that we will start mailing tokens on November 1st. Prize winners will also be notified during this time.

We have also created a brand new collectible arcade token in honor of the Portland Retro Gaming Expo. You can learn more about this cool new coin HERE. If you can't make it to the show, do not worry, we have created a way for you to receive this coin, and all future coins for the following year.

We would also like to announce our new "Collector's Club." This club will allow anyone who has at least 5 of our previous tokens. All you need to do is send a picture of your collection to our contact email address. contact@digthatbox.com. The club is limited to 100 members. Being a member guarantees that you will receive all the new coins for the upcoming year.

If you have already entered our contest for this year, be sure to let us know in your email. Also, if   you are a member of Cheap Ass Gamer or Atari Age.com, please put the name of either site in the subject line of your email. We will make sure you get a token.

Special thanks to everyone who has supported this wonderful promotion. Without your support none of this would be possible. Thank you also for your patience during the long wait to receive new tokens. This is a very time consuming process and the entire mailing is always handled by one person. In the future we have plans to streamline the contest and mailing process, so that you get your coins soon after they are revealed on our site. Stay tuned!

Sincerely,

Your Friends at DigThatBox.com

10/12/2015 - Digfender from Mug Shot Games Hits 2 Million Downloads
Mugshot Games digs deep and uncovers DIGFENDER, the follow-up to their #1 mining and tower defense hit, CastleMine, downloaded over 2 million times.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA October 12, 2015 – Mugshot Games™, the indie studio of two Australian brothers, Steve and Mike Yap, today announces the November 5 release of its second major tower defense title, Digfender.

Launching for free on iPhone/iPad, Android and Windows Phone, Digfender digs deep into tower defense, challenging players to hunt for resources underneath their castle while battling monsters rising from below.

Mugshot Games first introduced the digging concept to tower defense in their 2012 hit, CastleMine, which has been downloaded over 2 million times.

Digfender has been over a year in development and a considerable investment for Steve and Mike, who hope to introduce new players to the tower defense genre. Mugshot Games’ founder Steve Yap says, “My hope when designing Digfender was to provide a fun and accessible experience for all players while also providing new layers of strategy and surprises for tower defense veterans.”

Steve and Mike are committed to building Mugshot Games’ reputation for fun, accessible and player-friendly games. Digfender’s in-app purchases are entirely optional and the game doesn't include paywalls or wait-timers.

Digfender will be released on the App Store, Google Play and Windows Phone Store on November 5.
