“Our partnership with IGN will only drive more awareness among the gaming community.”
Foxboro, MA (PRWEB) March 17, 2010
Quick Hit, Inc. (“Quick Hit”), a leading developer and publisher of free social sports games, announced today that it has surpassed more than one million registered users for Quick Hit Football in its inaugural season. This milestone is accompanied by the news of its deal with IGN, the Web’s biggest gaming destination, which will extend the free-to-play, online football game to an even larger audience of game enthusiasts.
“Quick Hit Football continues to explode,” said Jeffrey Anderson, founder and CEO of Quick Hit, “and our partnership with IGN will only drive more awareness for Quick Hit among the gaming community.”
The distribution deal with IGN will increase the number of players exposed to Quick Hit Football in the off season, and help provide an even stronger platform for launching the game’s 2010 season. The game will be accessible through IGN’s network of sites, which includes Direct2Drive, FilePlanet, AskMen and IGN.com.
Quick Hit Football has been in open beta for five months and has already achieved more than six million visits, 35 million minutes of game play, and is one of the top ranked companies for searches on ‘free online football.’ The Quick Hit team recently released two new updates, including: a demo game and tutorial for new Coaches, play-by-play commentary, customized team profile pages and a daily reward system that credits Coaches with free in-game currency, or CP, when they sign into their team page each day.
“One of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of being a live game is the ability to continually improve the product and add new features for our users,” said Anderson. “It’s amazing how quickly we’re able to take a suggestion from the forums and turn that feedback into a new game element or improvement to an existing feature.”
