Here I am reading an email that's gone through the usual pipeline of developer-to-PR rep-to-Chuck-to-Me. The email announces 11 bit studios
, which is comprised of some of the folks who made this
, and also that their debut game will be announced in a week. Well after checking out their official site
, I realized that the email was originally written almost a week ago. I don't know what to expect from 11 bit studios
, I don't even know why their called 11 bit. I guess it's so they can get that little push past ten.
