Still going strong at five years old, the self-published AdVenture Capitalist has been played by more than 50 million aspiring capitalists around the world since its mobile release in February 2015. The quirky humour and engaging gameplay are the driving forces behind a steady day 1 retention rate of 60% and a 4.7-star App Store rating.
AdVenture Capitalist set the tone for the idle genre and remains one of the most played titles across the globe. Published on six platforms, it rapidly acquired accolades, including Most Played Game on Kongregate, Game of the Year on Miniclip, Top 5 Game on Steam, Popular F2P on Playstation, and Facebook Instant Game of the Year.
Over the years, the team has worked hard to raise the bar within the genre and released a second successful game as part of the franchise, AdVenture Communist. Today, Hyper Hippo is poised for significant growth as it looks forward to new challenges.
“There’s room for innovation in the idle genre, and we intend to lead the industry with the highest quality idle games on mobile,” said Tristan Rattink, Head of Studio at Hyper Hippo Games. “The last five years have been incredible, and we’re just getting started. We look forward to introducing fans to new, unannounced titles in 2020 as well as expanding into global markets.”
To mark the anniversary and say a huge thank you to fans worldwide, Hyper Hippo is launching a new collectible system and a limited time ‘All-Star’ event starting February 6th on iOS and Android.
