Seems like this is still not available in the US -- looks fantastic, though.

It plays very nicely as well. Good controls, nice music, and various little touches that let you know someone was actually trying. (The initial loading screen actually made me laugh out loud.)

Wait... I can't see the game yet, but if it's the flash/freeware series where your goal is to kill yourself in every level, I will definitely be picking this up the second it hits America.

YESSS!!!!

Haha, a bit of an overreaction there, but I freaking love those games. I've beaten all of them aside from Karoshi Factory, which I was in the middle of right before my laptop crashed.

Is it an original game, or is it a port of one of the original flash/freeware ones? I'll enjoy it either way, but I'm just curious.

Well, They Need To Be Fed is great, so I'm not surprised.

Yeah man, couldn't agree more. Only an hour left!

I don't think I've been this excited for a midnight release since Chaos Rings

I actually have no idea. Never heard of this game before the iPhone version release. I can tell you from what I've seen of the videos of previous versions though, graphically this one looks to have been enhanced. Put it this way: I'm impressed with the whole package and I came to it without any expectations at all. I doubt you'll be disappointed.
