FIRE UP SPLOSION MAN TO GET RED-HOT NEW PRIZES
Avatar Awardables, Omaha Sweepsteaks, and Online Multiplayer Fixes
AUSTIN, TX – October 26, 2009 – Twisted Pixel Games has announced three new reasons to play Splosion Man on Xbox LIVE® Arcade during the next few weeks: free avatar awards, free meats, and improved online multiplayer. CEO Michael Wilford said “we’re excited because this is the biggest update to an existing game, with a lot of chances for players to score some free new stuff.”
Now that the Xbox Dashboard fully supports awarding players with avatar accessories from within a game, a title update has been released early this morning to enable Splosion Man’s awardable functionality, making it the first game to provide this feature to players free of charge. Players who have already performed the achievement will be awarded their accessories at the main menu, while new players will get to see a preview of what their avatar looks like wearing the accessory. Players can win two male and two female accessories for free by playing through Splosion Man.

Twisted Pixel and Omaha Steaks have teamed up in order to deliver hundreds of top-quality steak filets to players.
