Hamburg, January 25, 2012 – Bigpoint’s ( http://www.bigpoint.com) casual game Farmerama ( http://www.farmerama.com) is celebrating its second birthday with over 35 million registered users and close to 500,000 Facebook fans. This impressive number of fans and players makes Farmerama one the most successful casual games of all time. Farmerama’s great success can be attributed not only to ever-increasing user registrations and the millions of active and satisfied players, but also – and most importantly – to Farmerama becoming a core game in Bigpoint’s portfolio within just two years.
Farmers around the world are partying until the cows come home – Farmerama’s turning 2!
It’s Farmarama’s birthday: reason enough to go hog-wild! It doesn’t matter if you are a new or an experienced farmer, everyone is invited. So lay down those pitchforks and start hanging streamers and blowing up balloons until you just can’t decorate anymore! Farmerama is having the rootin‘est, tootin‘est hoedown for farmers all around the world! 2 years of Farmerama – that entails a whole lot more than planting and harvesting crops and cleaning out stalls. Rather, players can expect weekly quests and events like an emotionally stirring royal wedding, Oktoberfest complete with delicious pretzels or the hair-raising full moon event. Farmerama’s players have earned a raucous shindig, complete with exciting quests, colorful decorations and a heap of cooky surprises. Loyalty will be rewarded: the top prize for hard-working farmers is a reward that gets better the longer a player has been registered.
“In developing Farmerama, we have finally created a game that is played by as many men as women, and with just as much pleasure. The game’s continued success is thanks to the team, who has captured the hearts of millions of virtual farmers with their always-fresh and increasingly creative game ideas, “says Heiko Hubertz, CEO and founder of Bigpoint. He is grateful for all their hard work!
