Glasgow, UK. January 28th 2013. Celtic Heroes, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game created by One Thumb Mobile, has been nominated in the Best iPhone & iPad MMO category in the 2013 MMO of the Year Awards.

For the last eight years, the MMO of the Year Awards have rewarded excellence in the rapidly evolving massively-multiplayer gaming market. The competition has categories covering every platform and type of experience from downloadable and browser-based games, through to greatest innovation, best community relations and best independent game.

Past winners, chosen by hand-picked jurors as well as members of the public, have included many of the world's biggest titles and brands from PC and console through to emerging platforms and markets.

Alex Wozniak, Community Manager for One Thumb Mobile, said, “We've worked very hard with Celtic Heroes to show that a massively-multiplayer experience on mobile devices can be in-depth, challenging, and provide just as much gameplay as other platforms. We're continuing to expand and evolve the whole Celtic Heroes world, and the nomination in the MMO of the Year Awards is genuinely gratifying. We'd like to thank the players and jurors who selected the game and we're really looking forward to the results with our fingers crossed.”
