ROCKET PACK LAUNCHES WARIMALS, THE FIRST HTML5 FACEBOOK GAME

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

  

Helsinki, December 8th, 2010– Rocket Pack Ltd launches alpha version of  Warimals, the first multi-platform social game that runs in the browser 

Warimals: Cats vs. Dogs is an asynchronous massively multiplayer online game (MMO) that tells the epic story about the everlasting war waged between Cats and Dogs.

Warimals combines the pick up and play mechanics of popular social games with more advanced gameplay familiar from the tower defense genre. "We feel that social games should move beyond repeatedly clicking on a cow" says  Jiri Kupiainen, CEO of Rocket Pack. "Players seem to agree - the alpha has almost ten thousand players, and we haven't even formally announced the game yet", he adds.

Warimals  is available on Facebook as well as at  http://www.warimals.com. The game can be played on several platforms, including the iPhone, iPad and Android.

Warimals  is built with  Rocket Engine, Rocket Pack's HTML5 game development platform. Rocket Engine allows developers to build social games that work on multiple platforms without requiring installation or plugins of any kind. "There's one runtime that will come with every new device that has a screen - the browser. With the new connected TVs and things like OpenGL just around the corner, we are very excited about the future of Rocket Engine and games that will be built with it", Kupiainen says.
