Endling sets the tone
The multiplatform release of Endling – Extinction is Forever is receiving overwhelmingly positive responses on Metacritic, Opencritic, and from our fans. Saving the last fox family in a world destroyed by humans is winning over critics worldwide. The latest milestone: the nomination in the category “Games for Impact” at The Game Awards 2022.
More streaming platforms
Premium Mobile Gaming
Mobile gaming remains a rapidly growing segment of the games industry. One of HandyGames’ strategies in expanding its portfolio of premium games is to present its fans with high-quality titles. At the forefront are Wreckfest, SpongeBob – Battle for Bikini Bottom, Titan Quest, Chicken Police – Paint it RED!, and many more premium mobile experiences.
HandyGames on Netflix
We were the first German publisher to release a game on Netflix. Namely, our beloved classic: Townsmen – A Kingdom Rebuilt. The streaming platform enjoys a large user base, which allows us to continue growing our community of players.
2022 brought us many awards: Chicken Police – Paint it RED! became the Best App for Tablets (Google), One Hand Clapping became the “Most Creative Game” (PLAY21), and won the “Innovation Award” (BIG, Brazil). Endling – Extinction is Forever made it all the way to The Game Awards as a nominee in the category “Games for Impact,” and Wreckfest (Mobile) is taking off just as successfully since its release and has already been named “App of the Week” (toucharcade). And that was by no means all.
HandyGames is expanding
More quality mobile games
We enriched our range of premium mobile games for iOS and Android! In collaboration with Nickelodeon, the popular and top-selling title SpongeBob Squarepants: Battle For Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated has been released, likewise our own classic Titan Quest – Legendary Edition, in its most comprehensive version ever!
We are happy to report our acquisition of the German game studio Massive Miniteam! Over the years, we have been able to work closely together on many successful releases, including Spitlings and the console versions of Little Big Workshop and Chicken Police. Another milestone on our way to a successful future!
