Kingdom for Keflings coming to OnLive with touchscreen controls

NinjaBee's decidedly adorable city-building game, A Kingdom for Keflings, is the latest arrival on the recently launched OnLive mobile streaming application. As part of its welcoming celebration, the title will run players $2.50 (down from $9.99) through midnight on Monday, December 12. Better yet, anyone who bought the PC version of the game directly through NinjaBee's site are eligible to receive a free OnLive copy -- just email with the subject "Keflings OnLive," including the name and email address you used to buy the game.

The OnLive version is one of few games on the platform to be altered to include native touchscreen controls, making it a nice fit on tablets like the iPad 2 and Android devices. Keflings, you see, are meant to be poked and prodded, not manipulated with cold, unfeeling joysticks.

December 8, 2011 - A Kingdom for Keflings, the hit city-building game first made popular on Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade makes its mobile debut today with its arrival on OnLive. The game's release coincides with the release of the cloud gaming service's new, free mobile app, which allows gamers to stream high-end games straight to mobile devices like the iPad2, Android tablets and several smartphones.

OnLive and Keflings developer NinjaBee have teamed up to celebrate the game's release with a special 72-hour launch sale, during which time the game will be heavily discounted to 75% off ($2.50 USD)! The game will return to its full price of $9.99 USD (£6.49 in the UK) on Sunday evening at 9 p.m. PST.

The new OnLive version of A Kingdom for Keflings supports all three of OnLive's control schemes: gamepad, mouse, and touch. And while nearly two dozen of OnLive's games support touch control through either a virtual gamepad or OnLive's new universal wireless controller, A Kingdom for Keflings is one of only a few titles on the service that feature native, specially designed touch controls for mobile devices - making the experience extremely easy to use and fun to play.

The recipient of several awards including Best Family Game (Xbox Live Arcade Awards) and many editors choice awards (IGN, Official Xbox Magazine, Team Xbox), A Kingdom for Keflings engrosses players with a quest to design, build, and customize a huge medieval city for the tiny and excessively cute characters, the Keflings. OnLive gamers are about to discover what hundreds of thousands of players already know: that A Kingdom for Keflings is one of those games that you just can't seem to put down.

A Kingdom for Keflings is available to purchase as a Full PlayPass title and is not included in OnLive's PlayPack Bundle.
