One man game studio Purple Dog Games, pictured, today celebrated the PC release of their first game, the single player card game, “Tickle Dice“.
International Director of Public Relations, Bjorn Morrison stated, “Did you see the traffic coming in this morning? It’s like everyone decided to leave for work at the same time.” When pressed to add

thoughtful play,” he added, taking an unnecessary swipe at the Art Department, which consisted of finding Creative Commons and Public Domain images.
