Mobile of the day on the FWA & over 20k sales!

Hello cuties!
Simogo survived christmas, and we’re here to bring you some pretty cool news.

First of all, Kosmo Spin is featured on the FWA as Mobile Of The Day:

Or here if you’re surfing on of them mobile thingamajigs.

Simogo is proud and honoured.

FWA stands for Favourite Website Awards, an industry recognised internet award program and inspirational portal, established in May 2000.
FWA is the most visited website award program in the history of the internet, with over 100 million site visits as of August 2010 (and multiple billion hits to our servers).

And here’s another review, this time from App Spy:

Clicky wicky here for the written review.

But here’s the big news:
Kosmo Spin has now been downloaded over 20 000 times (well actually over 22 000 times but 20 000 sounds better and Gordon said that he would punch me on the nose if I wrote 22 000. He has this weird thing with numbers. Don’t ask).
To all of you that bought our game: THANKS THANKS THANKS! You’re the best!

2011 will bring a lot of nice things, both for Kosmo Spin (the first update will probably hit App Store any day now!) and the game in production (which we are hoping to reveal to you soon!).
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Level mini review!


Swedish finest gaming magazine covered Kosmo Spin in their App list with a little minireview:

4/5!

It seems that the internet can never get enough of Kosmo Spin. Here’s some more stuff:

Skillpoint Review

Appdealz.de wrote a little piece And you German speaking people will note that you can win a promocode on Appdealz, by writing in the comment field of the article.

Now if you excuse me, we’ve gotta get back to that prototype we’re working on…

Just another round up & YES, the update has been submitted!

First of all:
Did you notice anything new on the blog?

But why I’m really here:
We submitted our Kosmo Spin update yesterday! Woohoo!
Lay your eyes on our new pretty icon:

Here’s the goodies:
- 12 brand new Quests!
- 5 fresh out of the oven Game Center achievements!
- You can now post your high score and progress to Facebook!

We also made some small fixes that you’ll hopefully like:
- New icon!
- Choose your page browsing style: Swipe or tap – Arrow buttons added on the Quests menu.
- If you happen to be offline when you get an achievement, it will now be posted the next time you go online on Game Center.
- Swipe on Quest menu is now more responsive.
- Added a hourglass when multi tasking, so there is no confusion to whether the game is loading or not.

… And some stuff is hopefully forever gone:
- Bad spelling and grammar in some of the Quests.
- Evil bugs!

While I have your attention, check out these reviews and stuff for Kosmo Spin:

Tomorrow is our last day before a few days off for christmas. But don’t worry. We’ll post something tomorrow, because we love you. XOXO.

Stuff in German

Es ist wieder Montag und here are some links in German!

And this should excite you very much:
Tonight we will submit our update! Then it’s just up to Apple to approve it. It will probably not be up on the App Store before christmas, but here’s hoping! We’ll keep you posted.

Kosmo Spin in Nöjesguiden


So, we picked up this Swedish free paper called Nöjesguiden (that would be THE PLEASURE GUIDE in English and no it’s not that kind of magazine) with the beautiful September on the cover. This is the kind of paper you read to find out what’s the hottest clubs, resturants, movies and whatnot at the moment.

So what’s THE most hot thing besides September right now?

Why, that would be Kosmo Spin of course!


Gordon reckons that Nöjesguiden works perfectly well as a hat.

10 000 players (+1) on Game Center!

WOOHOO!
You guys are amazing!
We now have over 10 000 players registered on Game Center! And getting more every day!
Thanks to everyone playing our game! You’re the best!

Note that this is not the same as all people playing the game, as many (a lot actually) are playing without Game Center.

In other terrifying and rather odd news, it turns out that Gordon is a shapeshifter. When hearing the fantastic news about our Game Center players he neatly transformed into a dog.

Cons: Dogs are not that good at programming and you have to walk him every now and then.
Pros: Dogs are cuter than programmers and in this case more comprehensible.

Start your hype engines!

WHAT’S THIS!?
Weird off screen mobile photos in bad angles of concepts for Simogo’s next game?
Why, yes. Yes it is.

We’re happy to tell you that production of the game after Kosmo Spin has officially started!
