From Hyper Hippo:
Facebook has named the capitalism simulator game AdVenture Capitalist, as its 2017 Instant Game of the Year. https://www.hyperhippo.ca/adventure-capitalist AdVenture Capitalist has shot up the top games list with more than 3 million installs since its debut in early December.
Players start their quest for world domination by clicking on the Lemonade Stand progress bar and growing an empire as the world’s best capitalist. Along the way you can hire employees, expand your business to new markets and attract eager Angel Investors to boost your profits and be the richest person in the world.
“We offer players the ability to make more money than they could ever imagine and do so in only a couple minutes a day,” said Lance Priebe Hyper Hippo Productions CEO. “We are very thrilled with this award, as we think Facebook Instant is going to be the fastest growing game platform in 2018. We see immense opportunity in the platform and our publishing company Screenzilla Entertainment has made it a priority to launch several games on the platform this year.”
The continued rise in popularity of idle gaming, where your characters and worlds continue to evolve while you are not actively playing, is a focal point for Hyper Hippo Productions. An app doesn’t need to be installed and you can go from chatting with a friend to playing and back to chatting with no interruptions to progress—perfect for building your empire.
Facebook Instant is a great platform for idle gaming. Facebook’s audience size and the social nature of the interactions can enable even the most casual connection to become the next major asset for your AdVenture Capitalist empire as it removes the barriers of forging new connections that other gaming platforms require.
Facebook labels AdVenture Capitalist as “simple yet addictive” and that “you can’t help but check in often to ensure that (your friends) don’t end out on top.” To play AdVenture Capitalist on Facebook Messenger now, click here. Priebe will be speaking about the rise of messenger-based games and give a sneak peek at Hyper Hippo Productions upcoming releases at Casual Connect in Los Angeles Jan 16-18.
