1 Year with Simogo

Simogo has soon been around for one year. Can you believe that? Time sure flies. We thought it might be cool to do a little round-up of what’s happened and what we’ve accomplished during this year. Here goes!

Kosmo Spin
– In December 2010 we released our first game – Kosmo Spin!
– Kosmo Spin was named Swedish Casual Game of the Year at “Dataspelsgalan” and was nominated for Best Nordic Handheld Game in the Nordic Game Awards.

Bumpy Road
– We released Bumpy Road in May 2011.
– Bumpy was Apple’s game of the week in the App Store when released.
– The game got insane reviews: 9/10 on IGN, 5/5 on Toucharcade, 4/4 Slide To Play, 8/10 pocketgamer…
– Sales have been good and we can finally make a living out of making our own games!
– We released the Sunday Trip Deluxe update for Bumpy Road in June.
– We’ve wrapped up The Autumn Years Update – it will be out soon!
– A Mac version is in the making!

Random stuff
– We’ve made 95 blog posts (well, 96 if you include this)
– Gordon has consumed 7000 litres of instant coffee (rough estimate)

The Stuff you didn’t see
– We worked on a pitch for a digital picture book.
– We made a GPS app thingamabob with some small gaming elements.
– We’ve toyed around with several pitches. “Tree”, “16Games”, “Scroom”, “Emma & the Topsy Turvy Toad Tower”, “Halma”, “Ghost Story”, “Human Rope”, “Is it spring” are some of them.
– A console version (with some nifty exclusive features) of Bumpy Road was planned together with a publisher, but it looks like it isn’t happening now. The upside of this is that we can use those ideas for our own stuff now! And we can do what we enjoy most – new and original games, without the interference of evil men in ties.

So now you’re asking, how are we celebrating this year of absolute creativity and brilliance? By making our first baby Kosmo Spin free for a couple of days. That’s right. FREE. Clicky clicky and Enjoy!
