Of all the offsite meetings we engaged in during GDC, the most pleasant place to visit was probably Electronic Arts’ suite at the St. Regis Hotel. Within that cozy location, Android Central’s Simon Sage and I met with Dan Tausney, PR Manager of Chillingo. As you might remember from our article about their most recent Windows Phone releases, Chillingo is the arm of EA responsible for publishing indie games from all over the world. They’ve been a major Windows Phone supporter and will soon be doing the same for Windows 8 as well.

Check out our hands-on footage with Contre Jour for Windows 8, see your favorite mobile Games Editor in action on video, and learn about Chillingo’s future Windows 8 plans after the break!

After today’s disappointing news of another week without a new Xbox game for Windows Phone, our gaming readers could probably use some cheering up. Well, I’m pleased to share some win-win information with you now. Not one, but two partially delisted Xbox games for Windows Phone have just become Windows Phone 8 compatible: Feed Me Oil and Parking Mania, both from Chillingo.

That brings the list of incompatible games down to 23, the lowest it has been since Microsoft’s new mobile OS debuted. Hopefully it continues to shrink in the months ahead!

Feed Me Oil from Holy Water Games, Chillingo, and Electronic Arts (phew!) is one of the more charming Xbox Live physics puzzlers for Windows Phone. It packs delightful, colorful art, tons of levels, and copious amounts of everyone's favorite natural resource. However, it also launched with a glitchy Achievement that threatened to put a plug in the fun. Thankfully the version 1.1 update fixes that and other issues.

Feed Me Oil version 1.1 release notes:

  • Updated localizations
  • Fixed ‘Oil Spiller’ achievement 
  • Improved touch response for some devices 

After installing the update, the ‘Oil Spiller’ Achievement should unlock at the main menu, assuming you’ve completed its requirements. If you haven’t spilled enough oil yet, just play Level 1-2 until you’re allowed to turn on the oil. Then let it spill continuously until you have the Achievement. (Note that some people may simply have to reinstall the game if the above doesn’t work.) Our thanks go out to the developers for fixing the formerly glitchy Achievement!

Feed Me Oil costs just 99 cents and there is a free trial. Grab it here on the Marketplace.

WPCentral broke the news of Chillingo’s Feed Me Oil coming to Xbox Live last month, with the promise that it would release within the next 1-2 months. It looks like we were right on the money, as Feed Me Oil has just debuted on the Marketplace. Even better news? It costs only 99 cents, just like its iOS counterpart. Also of note: Electronic Arts published the game rather than Chillingo, their subsidiary.

Feed Me Oil is a physics puzzle game that closely resembles Enigmo. The player’s job is to get a bunch of dropping oil into the mouths of gigantic creatures. You’ll use a variety of gadgets to do so, pushing, pulling, and otherwise directing the flow of oil. While the gameplay may be somewhat familiar to puzzle fans, Feed Me Oil’s creative art design (complete with cute intro) is far more appealing than Enigmo’s sterile setting. The Windows phone version features several exclusive levels, making the low price tag even more of a bargain.

Thanks to Zebrasqual and Robin Dale for the tip!

Last year WPCentral asked our readers what mobile games they’d most like to see ported to Windows Phone. One highly-requested game was Cut the Rope from Chillingo. Well, we’re getting one step closer to seeing that happen. WPCentral is pleased to announce that Chillingo has officially begun to support Windows Phone. Their first game: Feed Me Oil, from developer Holy Water Games.

Feed Me Oil is a physics puzzle game that closely resembles Enigmo. The player’s job is to get a bunch of dropping oil into the mouths of gigantic creatures. You’ll use a variety of gadgets to do so, pushing, pulling, and otherwise directing the flow of oil. While the gameplay may be somewhat familiar to puzzle fans, Feed Me Oil’s creative art design is far more appealing than Enigmo’s sterile setting.

The Windows Phone version of Feed Me Oil will include all of the original iPhone version’s levels, plus a new chapter with “fun new game elements.” Gotta love new content! It’s due out within the next month or two and will probably cost $2.99. Hopefully this is just the first of many awesome games in store from Chillingo!
