To kick off its partnership with Kidrobot, Seriously will release a limited edition run of vinyl collectible Slug characters, that will launch at this year’s San Diego Comic-­Con July 9-­?12. At launch, the Best Fiends mobile game will receive an update –‘Valley of the Slugs’ -­? which will feature the limited edition glow in the dark Slugs as well as the introduction of a special Kidrobot fiend in the Best Fiends mobile game. Further Best Fiends collectibles from Kidrobot are slated for later in 2015.

“Working with Seriously to bring Best Friends to life is just the kind of work that

fires us up here at Kidrobot,” said Bob Africa, President, Kidrobot. “It’s a creative

partnership that blends their fun and imaginative approach to mobile games with our art-­?centric style to product design.

Even Kozik is on it! “What?…wait a minute I’m about to beat level 123!!,” mumbled Frank Kozik, Creative Director, Kidrobot, amongst a sea of empty slurpee cups and half-­?eaten sandwiches.

Best Fiends features some of the most fun and challenging match and battle levels in an addictive mobile puzzle adventure.
