Hamburg, 16th of October 2012
The desire to play is part of human nature. Games provide us with an opportunity to discover and explore, act and react, fight and defend without taking any risks. Playing games is lots of fun. But for the people at Upjers and iLogos, creating hit games is even more fun.
Based on this shared belief, a leading independent game developer iLogos and Upjers, a developer and publisher of free-to-play browser games, have joined forces to collaborate on a new browser game. Upjers has produced highly successful game titles such as My Free Farm, Kapi Hospital and My Free Zoo – to name just a few. With a portfolio of over 20 games and 45 million registered users world-wide, Upjers has won a huge following of browser game lovers and has become one of the most popular game providers in Germany and globally. iLogos, as a leading European independent game developer, has a number of significant browser game successes under its belt: 11x11 - Online Football Manager and Gladiators have attracted millions of users and won critical acclaim. Now Upjers and iLogos have announced the start of a new joint browser game project. The companies have set themselves the challenge of developing an amazing game that will do much more than just satisfy the human urge to play.
“We specialize in browser games, as they provide various advantages and opportunities. We want to give our players only the best, and that is why we are joining with one of the best game developing companies - iLogos – to collaborate on a new game that will gain even bigger audiences and better reviews,” Klaus Schmitt, CEO Upjers said, commenting on the deal.
“On the behalf of our team, I would like to say that we are proud of our future partnership and are excited about the opportunity to work with real professionals, the holders of such prizes as “Browser Game of the Year” and “Best Casual Game”. We have a lot in common: our focus on great gameplay, our carefully crafted graphics as well as our approach for browser games creation. Both companies are looking forward to some outstanding results from our cooperation,” iLogos Europe CEO Alexander Goldybin added.
With their many users and different internal channels of communication, Upjers games create a sense of community that their players appreciate. In addition, they benefit from an intuitive gameplay that is particularly suited to beginners. As there is no need to acquire special skills before playing, there is less frustration for new players, who can dive straight in and start playing.
With more than 45 million registered players and thousands of new registrations per day, Upjers ranks among the leading browser game providers and producers world-wide. Founded in 2006, the company has published over 20 games to date. Constantly reinventing established genres, the dedicated employees at the company seat in Bamberg, Germany, work tirelessly on maintaining and updating the released versions, as well as on producing new games, using state-of-the-art technology. Upjers' focus on gameplay, carefully crafted graphics as well as community-management, has gained them several awards already, such as “Browser game of the year” and “Best casual game”, proving that their efforts in constantly improving game-mechanics and graphics, in short, to constantly excel themselves, are fully justified.You can find more information about Upjers on www.en.upjers.com
