Sulake are giving social gamers the perfect reason to celebrate this Easter as the award-winning free-to-play social browser MMO, Habbo Hotel, launching on Android devices and the Google Play Store. Finnish developers Sulake originally released the virtual world of Habbo Hotel way back in 2000, pioneering a new direction for online chat rooms and providing younger members of the gaming community the perfect gateway between social browsing and MMO gaming.
A combination of versatile social interaction elements alongside a well balanced virtual goods and free-to-play business model assured Habbo Hotel’s success with over 300 million characters registered as the game approaches its 15th anniversary.
[quote cite=”Antti-Jussi Suominen, CEO Sulake”]”The history of Habbo is much like the history of the videogames industry itself. We’ve had our ups and downs, and have survived by staying focused on our customers and continuously developing our approach to shifts in the environment. Micro-transactions, Virtual goods… ‘Freemium’, we’ve led the way through a lot of that, and we hope to do so again.
Above all, we are blessed with a community that remains passionate about the world we’ve built together in Habbo. They can now interact with each other in real time, using the same Habbo characters across online and mobile devices. We’re very excited this will include Android users as well. We saw steady growth online, we’re seeing steady growth on mobile and we have more big plans for the platform in the months ahead.”[/quote]
