In late January, LambdaMu Games took over every non-working waking hour of my life with Pixel People for iOS, a game about gene splicing, city-building, and desperately trying to avoid spending money (I failed on more than one occassion). It took me a month to stop playing. That's why today's massive update is a jerk.

There were 150 characters to create and collect. Now there are 255. You could collect animals. Now you can collect and trade them with friends. There's a whole new social element, with gifting and trading and new buildings and missions and dammit, Pixel People.

Pixel People is available on iTunes. It is still free. And evil.
