Garfield and friends are going on one heck of a nostalgia trip for the latest update for Garfield: Survival of the Fattest. We're talking backwards hats, acidwashed jeans, sweatbands, and lots more '80s nods. I suppose you could say it's awesome to the max. I wouldn't, though.

Garfield is taking a page from The Simpsons in Pixowl's upcoming Garfield: Survival of the Fattest. And no, he's not trading lasagna for donuts.
The game is actually a sort of town builder (ish) from Pixowl where you'll be putting structures together, forcing up to twenty different characters from the comic strip to work, playing mini-games, and keeping the world's most beloved fat cat, well, fat. The emphasis here is on the various characters - like John, Odie, the mouse, and so on - and you'll be able to have them each perform different tasks in order to progress. You'll also want to craft various food ingredients so that you can stuff Garfield's face and keep him all nice and doughy, of course.
Garfield: Survival of the Fattest will be coming to iOS on March 26 as a free download.
Who loves lasagna? Me. Also everyone's favorite grumpy fat cat, Garfield. Coming to the App Store this Fall will be Garfield: Survival of the Fattest, an original game from Pixowl, the folks behind The Sandbox.
Garfield: Survival of the Fattest will feature an original storyline centered around Garfield's passion for food, plus there'll be plenty of room for other characters from the Garfield Universe.
Check out the teaser trailer below. We'll keep you in the loop when it comes to the game's progress.
Pixowl has been working tirelessly for quite some time now, what with all the monthly updates to The Sandbox along with several other projects. It doesn’t look like they plan on slowing down anytime soon, either.
Last week, in addition to the news of the Farmer's update, it was also revealed that The Sandbox is rapidly approaching 2.0 status. This milestone (which should be ready within the next three to four months) will include updated features such as an all new interface, reworked campaigns, and will be in HD just like its PC counterpart. This means it’s going to look better, and give you a bigger place to play in.
The Sandbox EDU was also on display, which will be a premium paid version of the freemium classic that’s been specifically tweaked to function as an educational tool. The plan is for parents, educators, and kids to use it as a way to study things like physics, electricity, hot/cold, and so on. All of the elements will be open from the start, and will be restricted to those that actually have some educational value (i.e. no zombies). The Sandbox EDU should be available in the App Store a little before “back to school” time.
Finally there’s Garfield: Survival of the Fattest, which is due out in September. This one’s sort of like Greedy Grub [GET LINK] but with Garfield characters. You’ll get to complete missions for characters from the comic series, build stuff, collect resources, and even take part in three different mini-games. All in the name of getting the giant orange cat to lose weight. Or rather, to help the giant orange cat avoid losing weight.
