Hello and Happy Falcon Friday! Today's game is Chicken Hunter: Birds of a Feather.

Those darn chickens are at it again! With enhanced graphics, Chicken Hunter: Birds of a Feather features tons of new puzzles and endless opportunities to rack up points! Like the previous Chicken Hunter games, your goal is to shoot the chickens on the screen during your allotted time. But don’t forget: these chickens never go down without a fight, so things aren’t always as they seem. Watch your fire!

I'm so excited for this game! I love all of the Chicken Hunter games and $14.95 is a steal! Enjoy the game and enjoy the holiday weekend (if you're in the U.S.).

JoWooD Joins Novint's Publisher Lineup

You read correctly! Novint has just signed our FIFTH AAA publisher in four months! We've been keeping Tom, Novint's CEO, very busy! We're really excited to partner with JoWooD and enable some of their most popular titles for the Falcon. Among those titles are their action titles Painkiller and Gothic 3, both of which have sold well over 1 million units. We'll also have Painkiller Overdose, Panzer Elite Action, Panzer Elite Action - Dunes of War, Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None, Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express, Agatha Christie: Evil Under the Sun, Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft, Spellforce 2, and The Guild 2 Gold.

JoWooD is an excellent partner with games for various interests. Personally, I can't want to play Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express! I loved the book and can't wait to feel like I'm actually in the story! What do you think? What game are you most excited to play with the Falcon?

We've made it through another week everyone! Today is Falcon Friday and we're going to be launching Not-Cho Cheese.

Stop those squeaky little thieves! Not Cho Cheese is an arcade-style shooter that pits you against a mob of hungry mice, where you are the only thing standing between them and their ultimate goal: your cheese. Across 4 different levels, you'll battle this furry little horde, blasting them with a tennis ball-cannon and soaking them with water balloons. Actually feel effects like weight, momentum, and recoil as you defend your last block of cheddar.

This is a really fun casual title that I think you guys are going to love! And the best part is that it's FREE! What's not to love?! Check it out and have a great weekend!
