Today Spil Games and Hunter Hamster Studio announce plans to develop HTML5 versions of the hit online game series Snail Bob, which has exceeded more than 600 million game plays to-date across the globe.
Snail Bob, a series of 4 games (and counting), has been enjoyed by Spil Games’ 180 million monthly active users since 2010 and has occupied the ‘most played’ game spot on numerous occasions. Each game in the series is to receive HTML5 development, the first of which is slated for release by early 2014, with more versions to follow.
“HTML5 is still a new frontier for many indie game developers like us so we’re looking forward to embarking on this new opportunity with Spil Games,” said Andrey Kovalishin, Co-founder of Hunter Hamster Studio which developed the Snail Bob game. “For us, reaching a global audience across all mobile and PC devices is key. Spil Games’ publishing and marketing support will help us reach even more game players who play their favourite games on a variety of devices throughout their day.”
“Spil Games is investing heavily in HTML5 gaming because we believe this is the future of mobile gaming. With increasing competition in the fragmented mobile gaming space, developers are being forced to invest in multiple game versions for platforms and fight for space and recognition on saturated app stores,” said Dan Prigg, Senior Director Games, Spil Games. “Our plans for HTML5 development were birthed as the number of users accessing our sites via mobile increased, coupled with our ongoing desire to help and support indie game developers. We are committed to working with developers to make their games a success, help simplify HTML5 development and bring our audiences to their games to ensure they make money.”
Spil Games (spillgroup.com) has on-going plans laid out for the development of its HTML5 platforms and is committed to helping developers achieve hassle free success in this space.
