On the eve of our Icebreaker launch we thought we'd give you a little treat in the form of our final character roster!
Get ready for tomorrows BIG worldwide launch of Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage! We are all super excited about it, we hope you are too!
Thanks for all of the support that you have already given us, and with your help, hopefully we can make a BIG Splash on the app store tomorrow! :)
Only 2 days to go until Icebreaker will at long last be available for all you lovely people to purchase!
To help get you ready and help us spread the word we're thrilled to lift the lid on a little side project we have been working on called Icebreaker: Freeze Frame. It is available now so go and give it a whirl!
Make faces as if your trapped in the ice like the Vikings in the game then send that picture to a friend or perhaps just save it and use it as your Facebook profile picture to help us spread word about the game! Alternatively perhaps you have other things you might want to 'freeze frame'. Do show us what you come up with and we might post some of the more striking ones to the Nitrome blog and Icebreaker site!

have fun :)
Only one more day to go after this and as a final update before launch we wanted to finish off the characters page. If you head over to the characters page you can now see the full roster of characters that will be in the launch version of the game!
We are thrilled to be finally able to announce that Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage is 100% complete! It has already been submitted to Apple and been approved too!
It will be out on the 20th of June... that’s THIS THURSDAY!!!!!
We have an action packed week lined up for you between now and launch and we will be posting something Icebreaker related every day so come back tomorrow :)
We found the dark and quirky humour in this game to be right up our street.
You start off by falling into a seemingly endless void. Are your dreaming? *clunk* nope... but you are trapped!
This was a very cool (and sometimes difficult) escape game.

Today's Pixel Love game is Leaf Me Alone by Mark Foster and David Fenn
Leaf Me Alone was made for the Ludum Dare 'minimalist' theme!
The game is wonderful and reminds us a little bit of a cross between Fez and classic Zelda. We thoroughly enjoyed the chilled out atmosphere with the friendly open and roam-able levels in this one.
The way the game's simple puzzles are set out in the world make for a forgiving and intuitive play session.
We hope you are enjoying our colourful new puzzler Colour Blind. Just a quick question:
Has anybody managed to get the "awesume glasses" yet?
They are super secret and rather cool, just collect all the in-game coins to unlock them. Are you up to the challenge? ;)
Do you like cleaning up your room!? We thought not! So forget what you think you knew about tidying up!
It's a really manic time based clean 'em up. You will find yourself chucking loads of tiny blocks at the windows, clearing the floors easily with seconds to spare until it happens... All of a sudden that looming sofa resurfaces and comes flying out of your bag blocking the window! What now!? Better unblock it or find yourself another window!
The art style is really cool; we think your going to like this one :)

We thought that we'd update you with some more Icebreaker character goodness!
Check out our third update to take a closer look into the Icebreaker universe. Who is your favourite character of the bunch so far?
Icebreaker Update 12: Characters!
Get ready for a very exciting Icebreaker week next week, have a great weekend!
Did you know our upcoming game Icebreaker has God Powers in it? Well now you do so click through to find out more!
Let us know what you think of the God Powers we're giving you, and if you can think of better ones why not let us know (note: there is no way they will end up in initial release at this point, but hey it’s fun!)
Icebreaker Update 11: God Powers!
Today's Pixel Love game comes in the form of the gravity shifting, fast paced, action packed side scroller Quantum Corps!
We enjoyed the run and gun nature of this one and felt that the difficulty curve was intuitive to start off with making it easy to pick up the controls early on. It soon turns into a real challenge as you progress though! The artwork is impressive too.
Also, just a quick warning. There are some red pixels in this one! ;)
With that said, have fun trying not to fall off the screen!

We are a little late in posting this update as the site has been here since the Rovio Stars announcement. We have however been ironing a few things out under the hood with the site so it is now finally how we intended.
Icebreaker update 10: Website - Click Here!
The main thing is that it now displays correctly on an iPad and iPhone! This was quite a lot of work but finally we have it displaying less zoomed out and all of the animations now work!
Also, although it is a bank holiday weekend, we will still be bringing you a Pixel Love game next week on Monday, so remember to join us then!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Those of you following closely will have noticed that Icebreaker - A Viking Voyage has revived a new logo since the projects beginning. The new logo is the result of a few weeks experimenting between ourselves and Rovio. The aim was not to change the feel of the logo but to make it easier to read and more usable across all the marketing that was needed.
