A free lunch for Christmas

2008-12-17–

Harold’s Hills, the spiritual successor to the immensely popular casual game Icy Tower was released this week. The developer Free Lunch Design stays true to the fans by releasing yet another free downloadable game just in time for Christmas. Johan Peitz, founder of Free Lunch Design, hopes that Harold’s Hills will have the same attraction as Icy Tower which since its release has acquired over 20 million downloads.

“I’m especially happy with the addictiveness of the game, easy to get into but hard to stop” says Johan Peitz.

Free Lunch Design has also added online Flash games to their site and enhanced its community features. This has resulted in an increase in online traffic and exposure. One example is the newly created Icy Tower Fan group on Facebook which currently boasts around 80000 members from all over the world.

“We are seeing more and more visitors by the day. Currently we have around 100000 unique visitors each month and its growing steadily” Johan adds.

The business model is built around ads, premium subscriptions and licensing. The game Icy Tower was recently released for mobile by publisher Hands on Mobile. More titles are currently under negotiation for licensing on several platforms.

Harold’s Hills is available for download on www.freelunchdesign.com right now.
