Today, we’re announcing the global launch of Moshi Monsters Village, now available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch! Having launched in the UK on iOS before Christmas, the game has already proved it’s a hit with fans by reaching number two in the iTunes app charts during December and achieving over 250k downloads with no marketing spend within the first two weeks of the UK launch alone. So far there have been over 12,500 reviews in the app store averaging at 4.6 out of 5!
Founders of startups often receive the vast majority of media attention for their companies. Mind Candy has been no exception despite the fact that hundreds of talented people have all contributed to the amazing journey we’ve been on. There’s one person in particular though that I want to shine a spotlight on who has played an absolutely critical role in making Mind Candy successful.
We’re incredibly excited to announce that we are now a BAFTA award-winning studio!
On Sunday night we picked up the award for Moshi Monsters in the ‘Best Original Interactive’ category. This BAFTA is a huge achievement for all Mind Candies (past and present) and we can’t wait to continue the exciting journey Moshi has ahead of it!
This morning, the trailer for the first ever Moshi Monsters Movie was aired on ITV Daybreak! We’re all super excited and gearing towards the launch all across the UK and Ireland this Christmas.
