The first Xbox LIVE Arcade game with playable Avatars was NinjaBee’s A Kingdom for Keflings, a quirky game about bossing around villagers as a giant and looking for hearts buried deep inside the world’s vast amount of resources. As we learned today from Big Download, there are plans for a PC release.
I’m not being facetious when I express my joy for this news. Seriously, I really did enjoy the heck out of this game. All-around tough guy Brad Nicholson and I regularly played Keflings after long bouts of Gears of War 2, because it was great for easing the stress of rampant bloodshed down to a minimum.
NinjaBee is looking for testers on its forums currently, with plans to give those who actually participate in the beta and provide feedback a free copy of the game. Check out that last link if the work sounds manageable — Keflings is a fun game indeed.
