20 new games coming to Windows Mobile for free (but paid for by Microsoft)
In what could be a smart move to both lock in a game developer and spur more development on Windows Mobile (yes, we still talk about it), Microsoft is commissioning Touch Dimensions, a recent gaming startup from Singapore.
Known for creating "natural" interfaces for gaming and having knack for those sweet little simple games that people on mobile phones often prefer, Touch Dimensions has been tasked with bringing roughly twenty games to the Windows phone marketplace and they all will be free for the consumer.
These casual games will range from "...a digital sketchpad to a Whack-A-Mole-type game that lets you smack mosquitoes to oblivion".
Want to see what they are capable of? Touch Dimensions already have two games available: "Autumn Dynasty" and "Totem Star Lite"/Totem Star Christmas". And we'll keep you posted on when these inspired freebies start popping up!

This is very nice and great news for me and for other people who loves to play games very much. In sunny days mostly people likes to stay at home and if this news is true then people can enjoy staying at home by playing games.
