The virtual games produced by Helsinki based Supercell have made it to the top 25 grossing iPad games in the USA, reports the Arctic Startup website. The two games on the App Store top charts are Hay Day, a farming simulator game similar to Farmville and Clash of Clans which is a similar game within the fantasy realm.
- We have done very little marketing. I think our best marketing comes from the products themselves, our users love them which means they talk about them to their friends. Also, our products are designed to be more fun when played with friends and other people, which makes them grow virally, explains Ilkka Paananen, CEO of Supercell to Arctic Startup website.
The company is not planning to launch new games in immediate future, but according to Paananen, is concentrating to improve the existing games based on the user feedback.
Supercell has raised 12 million US dollars from Accel Partners, and company has offices in Helsinki and San Francisco.
