MOGA™ Provides the Ultimate Zombie Safe House
for Gamers at PAX East in Boston
Gamers at PAX East Will Go Hands-On With the MOGA Pro Controller
and MADFINGER’s Zombie Shooter, Dead Trigger
MOGA Pro Controller to be Available at Key Retailers and Carriers This Spring for $49.99
If a zombie infestation begins on the East Coast, MOGA will be ready with a zombie safe house on the show floor of PAX East in Boston, Massachusetts on March 22 – 24. MOGA will be on-hand at this year’s PAX East (booth #648) to give consumers their first-ever hands-on experience of the new console-style MOGA Pro Controller for Android devices. At PAX East, MOGA is partnering with developer MADFINGER and their hit MOGA Enhanced zombie game, Dead Trigger, to provide attendees at the show an experience they’ll never forget. Zombies will be roaming the exhibit hall, infecting unsuspecting gamers and giving them a chance to win a MOGA Pocket controller in the process.
“The perfect place to unveil MOGA Pro is at PAX, and a great game to show off MOGA Pro’s capabilities is Dead Trigger,” said JJ Richards, MOGA Divisional Vice President. “We believe gamers are going to have a lot of fun at the MOGA booth during PAX East. Not only will they get their first opportunity to try out the upcoming MOGA Pro, but attendees at this year’s show will also have a chance to win great prizes at our MOGA zombie safe-house.”
MOGA Pro will be available at key retailers and mobile carriers later this spring for an estimated retail price of $49.99. Gamers will be able to pre-order MOGA Pro online beginning March 22 at MOGAanywhere.com, Walmart.com, and BestBuy.com.
Features of the MOGA Pro include full-sized console-style grips, clickable dual analog sticks, four action buttons, a classic directional pad, two shoulder buttons, two shoulder triggers, rechargeable batteries, USB charging cord and a tablet stand. Additionally, MOGA Pro comes with the full support of the MOGA Mobile Gaming System, including wireless Bluetooth syncing with Android phones and tablets, the MOGA Arm that secures phones up to 3.2 inches wide and the MOGA Pivot App.
It’s March Madness at GameSamba!
Harlem Shake contest, Alien Abduction Festival, and new RK Launcher
kick off event schedule
GameSamba is celebrating spring with an exciting lineup of events and announcements! Beginning tomorrow, players in both Remnant Knights and Champions of Regnum can participate in the Harlem Shake Video Contest by gathering their friends to create an in-game video of the hottest viral dance craze. Next week, Remnant Knights fans will be marking the first day of spring with an Alien Abduction Festival starting March 20th. The company also announced a new Remnant Knights Launcher that allows players to launch the game outside of their browsers.
Gather your clubbies and clannies, it’s time to Shake! The global dance phenomenon has come to Remnant Knights and Champions of Regnum. Between March 15th and 29th, record a video in-game of you and your friends doing the Harlem Shake and upload it to YouTube. To help players properly suit up with premium shop items for their video wildness, Remnant Knights players will get 300 free sambas and Champions of Regnum players will see significant shop discounts. One winning video will be selected from each game, plus one winner that features both games in the same video. For more information and contest rules, check out http://remnantknights.
While most other MMOs will have players hunting down leprechauns this month, things will get downright otherworldly in Remnant Knights when the community observes Alien Abduction Day by kicking off a weeklong event running from March 20th through the 28th. Aliens have invaded Kasmari, and it’s up to the players to collect as many as possible and turn them in for prizes that are out of this world. Visit the new NPC Saturn located in your school courtyard for your marching orders, and checkout the Alien Abduction Festival
Remnant Knights players can now download the RK Launcher (less than 400kb file) that provides another way to access the cloud based game. Rather than having to visit remnantknights.com in their browser to login and play, players can click a desktop icon and launch the game via the RK Launcher to provide an experience players are accustomed to with most client games. You can also still play via browser any time as well. To download the new RK Launcher, visit the website at: http://remnantknights.
