'The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile'

A new trailer for one and a contentious PC version for the other.

Ska Studios recently was caught up in a mini-controversy over their 2011 XBLA game 'The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile,' and in response made an announcement. The issue stemmed from the release of a fan-made port of 'The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile' for the PC, which was released citing the some angst over the developer supposedly denying a PC port.

Naturally Ska Studios would rather have focus on their current project, the Xbox 360 bound 'Charlie Murders.' The studio has now released a launch trailer for the game despite that fact the game does not even have a release date.

In direct response to the posted PC port and frustration over the game's exclusivity, the developer explained that the lack of a PC version of 'The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile' was mainly due to a lack of time for the dev team. Ultiamtely, Ska Studios has decided to make a PC once 'Charlie Murders' is complete. "Porting Vampire Smile to PC as an enhanced Director’s Cut has been something I’ve been wanting to do since launch... and we had actually broached the subject with Microsoft last Friday, almost a week before this happened. Nothing’s set in stone, but we got the go ahead to make a pre-announcement: we’ll be working with Microsoft to bring our stuff to PC."
