Although April is traditionally a fairly sparse month for gamers, with very few high profile releases before the fall and winter months, this year has seen an even more thin group of titles releasing. Many of the games that will hit store shelves during the upcoming weeks will be lower budget releases, often not even for home consoles but rather portable consoles such as the Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita. There are still a few larger games to get excited about though, as well as a collection of high quality titles made available to download for free across various platforms.
Coffee Stain Studios, publisher of Goat Simulator and MagicalTimeBean, developers of Escape Goat 2, have teamed up and joined Heifer International to provide help for those in need. A donation to this cause will provide animals to poverty and hunger stricken areas. If a donation of $20 or more is provided, codes for both Goat Simulator and Escape Goat 2 will be sent to the donator as a bonus for helping.
