CerebralFix Acquires AppStrip

January 16, 2012 - Christchurch, New Zealand – Leading Casual-social game development company CerebralFix has announced their purchase of AppStrip, a Facebook™ cross-promotional network for participating games.

Since August 2010, AppStrip has offered social game development studios the ability to advertise their products within other developers’ titles, enabling smaller companies to compete with their larger counterparts. By operating on a members-only, credit-for-clicks system, the cross-promotional platform has garnered solid player leads for its participants while also enabling independent game developers to remain competitive, independent of marketing budget constraints. AppStrip has been owned and operated by the value exchange mobile ad network company Tapjoy™ since November 2010.

CerebralFix, a company earning its name as an independent, social-casual game development studio, plans to add new features to AppStrip while maintaining its core value and functionality. While no specific improvements have been announced, the company has dedicated some of its most valued resources to AppStrip and the product’s enhancement. Furthermore, as a participant in the social gaming environment, CerebralFix understands the marketing challenges that developers face as well as the platform constraints they face.

“The acquisition of AppStrip is a major milestone in the continued growth of CerebralFix. AppStrip is a wonderful product and a well-respected brand in the Facebook gaming community,” said CerebralFix CEO Ben Dellaca. “We have plans to develop the product even further with exciting new features, and we want to let current customers know that we will continue to provide the same excellent service they have grown accustomed to receiving.”
