I love to dance a merry jig while singing sea shanties. It be just the thing to lift me spirits before pillaging, I mean NEGOTIATING with another merchant ship. Argh! All you gotta do to jig up a storm is use your emotes in game. YARGH!
To do an emote, just use the D-pad. It be that little grey area on the controller that looks a little like an anchor. Alright, maybe it looks more like a ninja star, but ninjas be pansies, so pretend it looks like an anchor. YAR! If ya press the anchor, the emotes menu will come up. Just choose the first one up and press "A" - you'll start bustin' a move fit to call the kraken! Truth be told, that dance only calls Keflings to yer side, not krakens, but that be just as good.
There be other dances and special moves you can learn too but they be secret, like buried traysure, and the only way to find them is to build up yer kingdom to the fullest. There also be emotes you can only get with friends in local and live multiplayer, and there be emotes that are only unlocked by gettin' achievements in other games! You can learn some pretty sweet moves from those land-lubbers in Band of Bugs, let me tell ya.
Also keep your eyes open for those sneaky NinjaBees. They'll be teachin' people two secret emotes that you can only learn from someone else that knows it. Aye. If ya be playin' on Sunday December 26th around 7:00 p.m. PST (I think that stands fer Pilferin' the Seadog's Traysure...) ya may run into one. They'll be playin' their little hearts out, spreading their viral emotes like a bad case of scurvy.
I think you've heard enough from me, mates. I'm off to swab the poop deck... I mean CLEAN THE BATHROOM. Aye, merchant's gotta keep his bathroom clean. See ya in game.

The wait is over!!
Release Date: December 22, 2010
Price: 800 MS points
This holiday season A World of Keflings will kick off Microsoft's "Games for the Holidays" for Xbox LIVE
Along with Raskulls and ilomilo, A World of Keflings is one of three titles in the holiday-themed promotion. All three games include unique content that unlocks if a player owns and earns an achievement in one of the other games.
"The cross-title features are really cool," said Steve Taylor, Keflings creator and President of NinjaBee. "If you buy Raskulls or ilomilo you can build homes for characters from those games in A World of Keflings. Then those characters live in your game world and you can kick them around with the rest of your Keflings. At the same time, if you own A World of Keflings you can choose to have a Kefling as your playable character in Raskulls or dress up ilo and milo in swanky Kefling costumes."
As part of "Games for the Holidays," players who purchase A World of Keflings will get early access within the game to buy the full versions of Raskulls and ilomilo before they officially release. Each of the three games can be purchased from within the others.
"Something all three 'Games for the Holidays' titles have in common is a strong local-multiplayer experience,"
A World of Keflings also supports online multiplayer for up to four players over Xbox LIVE.
"Games for the Holidays" is the perfect collection of games to let players create, compete and collaborate together with friends and family over the holidays.

“Why are we doing it? We just really like Irish people,” said Brent O’Fox, Art Director at NinjaBee. “And it’s not just the people; it’s the other stuff too. We’re big fans of corned beef, Lucky Charms, shamrocks, leprechauns and the color green. Oh, and Tom Cruise’s accent from Far and Away.”
For a short period of time NinjaBee’s three iPhone games, Kaloki Adventure, Kaloki Love and Kaloki War, will be available for free on the iTunes App Store. Together the three games contain the full content (including DLC) from NinjaBee’s Xbox LIVE® Arcade title, Outpost Kaloki X, which was among the original games released when the downloadable service’s debut in 2005.
“I trace the inspiration for these games back to my Irish roots,” said NinjaBee CFO Lane McKiriyama. “Why, when I was a kid back in

It’s time for a first look at NinjaBee’s next Xbox LIVE® Arcade original title, Ancients of Ooga, the upcoming action-adventure platformer from development team J. Kenworthy Entertainment, the team that created Cloning Clyde.
These screenshots from an early beta version of the game reveal a first look into the Oogani world where this new action-adventure platformer takes place.
Though not a sequel to Cloning Clyde, developers of the title consider Ancients of Ooga to be the classic XLA game’s spiritual successor. The game was heavily influenced by Cloning Clyde, taking on characteristics like extremely unique gameplay, a distinct artistic style, a cast of characters bursting with personality, and a dose of random, silly humor.
“The Ooganis aren’t your typical heroes,” said Brent Fox, NinjaBee’s art director. “But that’s what makes this game so fun to play. They’re quirky, bizarre, and at times borderline foul. An Oogani’s world is centered around eating. You have to eat, chant, dance and even puke your way through the primeval
This 2 1/2D-side-scrolling adventure is packed with puzzle solving, bad-guy fighting, ladder-climbing, catapulting, strange-object eating, puking enjoyment. Nearly anything is edible: dried wormies, charcoal, peppers, and yes, even your Oogani brothers. But be careful what you eat – while some objects can give your Oogani special powers, others won’t have such a pleasant effect.
