When the Minis program launched, Halfbrick was one of its biggest supporters, launching several titles, the biggest of which, Age of Zombies, introduced a new action hero (or parody of one), Barry Steakfries. Soon after, though, Halfbrick had major success on iOS with the inexplicably popular Fruit Ninja, and they dropped further Mini support like [...]

While Barry Steakfries and Halfbrick Studios have left for the greener pastures of the iPhone, that didn’t stop his debut title, Age of Zombies, from winning the 2011 PlayStation Network Gamer’s Choice Award for Best Mini.
That also means that it will be priced 30% off, 50% for PS+ members, presumably this coming week.

It’s been a while coming, but finally minis have their own superhero. Age of Zombies’ square-jawed wise-cracking zombie head-splatting foul-mouthed heartthrob Barry Steakfries doesn’t just have the best name in the world, ever, he’s such an all-round badass he could probably kill zombies just by looking at them, but instead he chooses to blast them [...]
