FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
London, Ontario (September 1, 2010)– Big Blue Bubble is honored to have their iPhone/iPad application, Thumpies, win the award for Mobile Entertainment of the Year at the Mobile Content Awards 2010 in Seoul, Korea.
Facing some stiff competition that included more than 110 companies from 15 countries, Thumpies emerged victorious against semi-finalists Fallen EP-1 from 7th Sense Studios in the United Kingdom and UBC Mobile from UBC in Korea. Present to accept the award and the prize money, Big Blue Bubble CEO, Damir Slogar stated“After receiving nothing but absolutely glowing reviews from the media, Thumpies reached another milestone– formal recognition from industry professionals. This will just fuel our enthusiasm to bring the game to many new platforms.“
Thumpies is a unique rhythm-based music game for players of all ages. By correctly matching the beat of bouncing Thumpies the player progresses through a song. Unlike typical rhythm based games, Thumpies uses a mechanic of bouncing in time instead of just a series of notes. Who knew juggling furry creatures could be so much fun?
The quirky art design of Thumpies XL is accompanied by a unique musical score composed by award winning, industry veteran David Kerr. The music was crafted with game play in mind, giving the player a harmonizing experience.
