Back in the happier times when Microsoft actively supported Xbox games on Windows Phone, I had the pleasure of interviewing Ska Studios, the two person team behind Zombies on the Phone. While Ska worked on Zombies (which came out at the beginning of 2012), they also plugged away at an Xbox Live Arcade game called Charlie Murder. It would be their most expansive game to date.
In fact, Charlie Murder just recently arrived on Xbox 360 as part of the annual Summer of Arcade promotion. On the surface, Charlie Murder is a cooperative beat-em-up in which one rock band is forced to save the world from a demonic invasion. But it’s also an evolution of the brawler genre that manages to outdo even the beloved Castle Crashers in sheer personality and scope. Head past the break for our full review!
