A couple of months ago we got an email from Petri Lehmuskoski, angel investor, game enthusiast and a co-founder of Gorilla Ventures startup accelerator. The mail was short and still somehow strangely complicated, but the plain message was: “I’m working with a new game startup, which have founders with a track of 375 million users and over $120 million in revenue from their last game. We are searching for a dev team. Interested?”
Oh, are we?
Now, two months later, we are in close collaboration with Appstar, the new player in the field of mobile games targeted for female players. Although this collaboration has only lasted for a month or so, I can’t underline enough how great this all has been right from the start. New office, new great co-workers, lots of new faces, a whole new game concept.
So, what are we actually developing? Nothing less than the next biggest hit in female gaming, a dress up fashion game challenging the great names in the niché, namely Kim Kardashian: Hollywood and Covet Fashion. I don’t want to bore you by telling how great it’s going to be, you can check it out yourself when it’s ready
And don’t you worry dear Armadillo Adventure fans, this doesn’t mean that we have abandoned you! We are developing the game further, adding new levels and cool skills in our next patch. Now that we have made the Android launch in Nordics, it’s time to conquer Apple Appstore.
The bestest of regards,
Ps. See you in Slush
