Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
Zipline Games was honored today as a finalist for “Best Seed Stage Company of the Year” in WTIA’s 17th annual Industry Achievement Awards. Since launching the public beta of its Moai game development platform, Zipline Games has signed up more than 5000 game developers. Notable mobile games companies using Moai include Distinct Dev (creators of The Moron Test), Bungie Aerospace, Harebrained Schemes Crimson: Steam Pirates), Go Go Kiddo, and Nay Games (Bubble Ball). Taken together, these companies account for over 25 million mobile games installed.
Zipline Games also launched its first mobile game, Wolf Toss, in December, 2011. Wolf Toss combines the addicting game play of popular physic-based puzzle games and the deeper experience of an old-school platform game’s power ups, collectibles and cheats to keep things fun and exciting every play session. Wolf Toss, built by a small studio team using the Moai platform, was released simultaneously on iOS, Chrome and Android, and has gone on to collect over 1.2 Million players in its first 8 weeks on the market. Wolf Toss has also achieved an average of 4.5/5 stars in nearly 4000 user reviews across the three platforms.
“Our studio and platform teams have both done great work and achieved outstanding results over the last year, and I’m honored that the WTIA has recognized Zipline Games by selecting us as a Best Seed Stage Company finalist,” said Todd Hooper, CEO of Zipline Games. “We’re looking forward to a terrific 2012.”
WTIA’s 17th annual Industry Achievement Awards will be held on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at Seattle’s Showbox in SODO. Finalists will be honored and winners will be announced live at the event.
