SAN FRANCISCO – March 20, 2013 –  Leading global and mobile social game publisher, 6waves, and award-winning developer, Big Blue Bubble, today announced that Raft Pirates , their mobile MMO starring adorable robot pirates, is welcoming another famous robot—Android’s Green Robot—to release their game on Google Play: http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sixwaves.raftpirates

Android sailors can now explore the online seas for weapons, blueprints, maps, and diamonds to build armed rafts, plunder other ships for loot, and protect themselves against enemy captains bent on snatching their booty. More resources means more dice to roll in battle and better preparation against attacks while the player is offline!
