geoDefense and geoDefense Swarm Welcomed as Newest Members of the App Treasures Family

ST. LOUIS - Oct. 20, 2009

App Treasures, a group of independent iPhone game developers, today welcomed Critical Thought Games, the developer of the hit geoDefense tower defense series. geoDefense and geoDefense Swarm join a cast of top-tier iPhone titles in the App Treasures lineup.

App Treasures collects top-quality indie games for the iPhone and iPod Touch to make it easier to find great games in the App Store that are created by independent developers. Critical Thought Games, the independent game development studio that created the geoDefense series of 'Thinking Man's' tower defense titles is the first indie studio to join the ranks since App Treasures was initially formed in June.

Prior to this latest addition, App Treasures members included The Blimp Pilots (Koi Pond, Distant Shore), Imangi Studios (Imangi, Word Squares, Little Red Sled), Snappy Touch (Flower Garden), Streaming Colour Studios (Dapple), and Veiled Games (Up There, Payday Roulette).

“The iPhone and iPod Touch has quickly evolved into a phenomenal gaming platform, and I think it’s the greatest thing to happen for indie developers in a long time,” said David Whatley, founder of Critical Thought Games.“App Treasures is a group of like-minded indie devs with great ideas, great development chops, and great games. I’m proud to be a part of it!”

App Treasures games represent the best indie titles currently available, so naturally geoDefense Swarm, which hit No. 1 in Top Paid Games, is a great addition to the label. The addition of Critical Thought Games confirms that App Treasures games are truly the top independently developed iPhone games available.
