NinjaBee, the studio behind such XBLA games as Cloning Clyde, Outpost Kaloki X and Band of Bugs has announced that they will be bringing A Kingdom of Keflings
to Xbox Live Arcade this Fall. Not many details were announced, but it sounds like it could lean toward a Lemmings style of game play.
Studio hires 20 new employees, all 3 feet tall
NinjaBee, now with more Keflings!
Orem, Utah - June 4, 2008 - NinjaBee, a leading independent developer of Xbox LIVE® Arcade titles, announced today it has hired 20 Keflings to help around the office. Featured in their newest Xbox LIVE Arcade Title, A Kingdom for Keflings, the Keflings are short, happy beings who aren't afraid of a bit of hard work. Once production slowed on the studio's newest city-building game, the Keflings became aimless without constant direction.
"I'll be honest here, I went out to my car and ten of the little guys were wandering around, bumping into each other and wearing little sandwich boards reading 'Will Work for Hats,'" said Steve Taylor, President of NinjaBee. "We couldn't put them out on the streets after they worked so hard on our game, so we hired them to help around the office. They follow directions to the letter and are very friendly, but not too smart. The way I see it, what could go wrong?"
The Keflings are expected to work everywhere from the art department to the copy room and will surely remain happy and occupied.The new title, A Kingdom for Keflings, will feature fun and light-hearted gameplay with graphics and original music to match. Look for A Kingdom for Keflings on Xbox LIVE Arcade this fall.
