Company increases Windows Phone development, adds publishing and distribution.
Lunagames announced today that it has achieved over five million downloads on Windows Phone and that it is accelerating production and publishing activities for Windows devices.
Lunagames began supporting Windows Phone in the beginning of May 2014 and has seen exceptional growth and opportunity since. By differentiating its product portfolio, improving overall game quality and focusing on marketing, community and PR, the company aims to double the amount of downloads on Windows Phone by the end of the year.
"At Gamescom we announced that we had surpassed the two million download mark and now three months later we have exceeded five million downloads," said Richard Hazenberg, CEO Lunagames. "We believe that the vision of one Windows Store across multiple devices will offer developers an even greater opportunity to reach consumers moving forward. We will be expanding our development capacity to deliver our daily feel good moments to all Windows devices. Furthermore, we just launched a publishing program that will help interested developers maximise the Windows opportunity," he continued.
"Game Publishers like Lunagames entertain millions of Windows Phone users with their apps," said Todd Brix, General Manager, Windows Apps and Store, Microsoft Corp. "Lunagames is among the many publishers and developers who are increasingly taking advantage of Windows Store to target a growing range of Windows powered phones, tablets and PC with lucrative monetization capabilities."
Lungames has been providing "Daily feel good moments" for mobile users since the early days of mobile phones and is now fully focusing on smart devices and the Windows platform. Thanks to incredible growth figures on Windows Phone, it has become a key hardware platform in Lunagames' expansion strategy. Lunagames wants to help other developers tapping into this interesting market.
