Melhor means Best in Portuguese!

Earlier this year Okhlos was chosen to be part of the Leftfield Collection and showcased at the EGX Rezzed in London, so this would be the second time the game receives an international honor.

We promise to do a more comprehensive post about this, and our experience in Saõ Paulo in the future, but right now, we wanted to share this awesome news with you guys!

    Congratulations on the award! Which seems to be somewhat in theme with Okhlos cause that character on it looks like an Evil Spartan Pac-Man. I wonder how you are celebrating the award. Coffee? ;)
