Take Up Arms and Battle Across Platforms in Spicy Horse's latest release
Oct. 15 2012, Shanghai. Spicy Horse Entertainment, Shanghai-based developer of top-quality games for mobile, online, console, and PC platforms, announced today that its game "BigHead BASH" is officially out of beta and live for all browsers through Spicy Horse's own Spicy World ( http://spicyworld.spicyhorse.com) and via Armor Games, Kongregate, and Facebook.
"BigHead BASH" is a realtime player-versus-player deathmatch game pitting collectible toys against each other in zany combat environments. Spicy Horse's innovative multiplatform technology means all players from all platforms can play together on a single set of servers for all platforms and portals.
The launch features Andox and Box from "Happy Camp", one of China's most popular shows, player-created content placed into the game by Spicy Horse, and politicans like Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, George W. Bush, and Ron Paul.
Spicy Horse will be licensing leading IPs from around the world for use in the game, from popular TV characters to famous faces from music and comics.
Other future additions to BigHead BASH include new maps, new game modes, and a "Make it Now" button enabling players to purchase selected models in the game, then receive a physical copy of the toy at their home.

...With Andox and Box... [div]
Included at launch are Andox and Box, part of Spicy Horse's first major licensing deal. Based on beloved characters from one of China's most popular TV shows--and it's in Wikipedia, so you know it's true--Andox and Box bring Happy Camp's antics to the world of BigHead BASH, fully approved by Andy Lau, the creator of Andox and Box.
You can see some of the character art over to the right. Hint: Andox is the white one.
We have in-game screenshots of the two characters duking it out in BigHead BASH, some of which are above and some of which are just below these words. [/div]
...And Player-Created Content... [div]
But wait, we have more!
As part of Spicy Horse's commitment to their players, they held a contest allowing would-be designers to make their own collectible creatures and those are also part of the BigHead BASH extravaganza. You can check out those creations below. [/div]
...And New Maps... [div]
BigHead BASH also added two new maps just in time for launch (and Halloween!). Set sail on the spooky Pirate Ship or prowl the mysterious cemetary. You can see the concept art below. [/div]
...And Cutting And Timely Political Commentary... [div]
'Tis the season for arguing about politics on Facebook, but we want to encourage all readers to skip the Unsubscribe or Important Updates Only or, ye gods, Unfriend options and settle their differences in BigHead BASH. To that end, we've provided a politically diverse suite of characters who can shoot rooster guns at each other, thus proving the superior ideaology. (You can also see some of them in the initial batch of screenshots up top). [/div]
And It's Live on Armor Games! [div]
Adding to all the launch day festivities, Spicy Horse is also pleased to announce that BigHead BASH is live on Armor Games, one of the biggest game portals going.
Players wanting to give BigHead BASH a whirl on Armor can visit this link and jump right in to play.
Best of all, BigHead BASH utilizes Spicy Horse's multiplatform technology, which means no platform seperation. Players on Armor and other gaming services will play with the wider BigHead Bash community. [/div]
