Phobies adds new maps, characters, quests, giveaways and more during first-anniversary festivities

Smoking Gun Interactive Inc. is celebrating the first anniversary of Phobies, the studio's popular tactical card-collecting strategy game on mobile and on Steam. Dubbed "The Birthday Masquerade", the first-anniversary celebration adds a massive update that lets players enjoy fresh maps and new Phobies among other birthday bonanza goodies.

During the first anniversary of Phobies, players can expect to face the ultimate manifestations of their fears with 8 spine-tingling new Phobies they can unleash. Along with these deliciously sinful delights come 4 new abilities as well, plus plenty of limited-time events throughout the festivities where juicy rewards of all kinds are up for grabs.

To kick things off, the game is offering players tons of free gifts during its 6-day giveaway as a special "thank you" for players' love and support throughout the year. All these come on top of the 3 new maps and 5 fresh avatars players can use to express their individuality.
