02.04.11The praise for Hemp Tycoon is rolling in faster than we can catalog it. To wit - PlayThisThing, who praises us for nailing the grow-your-own movement without the "fruity surrounding indicia we see on Facebook."

05.21.10Even murderers need to eat (apparently!), so we made a game about it!

Get food on your apron and blood on your hands and play Death Row Diner! These folks did and loved it!
05.09.10We like a good love story, so what could be better than a game about expressing your love with a jetpack? Jetpack Jackass has blasted-off over at Adult Swim. Now go show it some love. Or perhaps you'd be willing to poke Floater Pro onto your iPhone? We'd be kindly obliged if ya'did.

01.15.10We love basketball. Well, not playing it so much, what with all the "being outside" and "balls hitting us in the face" and "being five foot three." But we love the idea of basketball - and our new game, Three-Point Shootout, now on Foot Locker Unlocked!

01.08.10 Some accolades come only once in a lifetime - others come only once a week. But this week is ours - for Pole Dance Hero has been named Game of the Week at Casualgaming.biz! We bask in this glory, for this week is one like none other - a week America spent with us, riding the pole.

11.23.09Are you in the holiday spirit yet? Well, maybe taking a trip up to the north pole with everyone's favorite post-apocalyptic prostitute will help get you in the mood. Zombie Hooker Nightmare XXX-Mas is live today at Adult Swim - unleash a stocking of new weapons on the denizens of the frozen north, and sneak a roll in the hay with Santa himself.
09.25.09Our games are a little like our children - we send them out into the world, hoping that people will love them and respect them for what they are, and knowing that the next one will be even better than the last. Take Inuyasha Demon Tournament, which is still Adult Swim's most played game ever with over 70 million plays! But it's always nice when we find out that our younger ones are doing well out there - like on AdultSwim.com, where we currently have 4 of the 5 top-rated games of this year, and 3 of the 5 most-played games of this year.

07.20.09Play This Thing were kind enough to write up their love of My Lil' Bastard, and throw a few kind words our way as well. We're flattered, and we're especially glad that the game was "enough to put them off parenthood." All in a day's work.
07.16.09On such a beautiful summer's day, our thoughts wander to our childhoods, where we spent whole days running around the woods, exploring and adventuring.

06.25.09Never let it be said that This is Pop is only about silly, mindless fun. On our off-hours, we've even been known to read books without pictures in them. Nevertheless, it was exciting to put our principles into play (and draw pixelated boobs) for Breasts Not Animal Tests, live today at PETA2.
06.19.09Our games have got legs, baby. Check out the CartoonNetwork.com top games list - three This is Pop games are still leading the charts. If you haven't checked them out, see what you're missing in Battle Blitz, Ninja Survival, and Battle Ready, just three of those perennial favorites.

03.20.09 Thanks to the good people at Gamezebo for their kind words about Ultimate Vending Machine Challenge, and their advice not to try it in real life. Good advice, and we wish it had come a little sooner - get well soon, Will!
03.12.09 For all of us with a little bit of hair loss anxiety, it's time to stand up and praise a real hero. Someone who takes matters into his own hands, stands up and finds his own hair, by any means necessary. Someone like Mr. Mullet, live today at AdultSwim.com!
