Price goes up at the end of this weekend

Back in April, we first heard about Sunbreak Games, a studio founded by former Metroid Prime and Halo 4 designer Jason Behr. As a bit of a curveball, Sunbreak's first title would break from Behr's tradition of sci-fi first-person shooters and instead be a family-friendly runner headed to mobile devices. Buddy & Me showed up on Kickstarter and narrowly met its funding goal of $40,000 during the final hours of the campaign.

The title launched on iOS devices in September, but Android users had to wait another three months before being able to play with that big, yellow fluffball up there. The good news for those with devices running Android 2.3 or later is that Buddy & Me is free for its debut weekend through the Amazon App Store. Interestingly, this deal is available for backers and non-backers alike. After this coming Sunday, the price will increase to its standard price of two bucks.
