NEUCHATEL, Switzerland, May 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Miniclip today launches a month of exciting celebrations as it commemorates its 10th Anniversary!
The international game company has come a long way from its origins in a small London flat, where in 2001 its two co-founders, Robert Small and Tihan Presbie, filmed and created the massive viral Flash game "Dancing Bush". In the decade since, Miniclip has grown to be recognised as one of the world's top games publishers, with 65 million monthly unique users playing over 650 games on website Miniclip.com
To celebrate this event Miniclip has launched an anniversary section at http://www.miniclip.com with a number of exciting features and gifts, plus a massive free prize draw to win a $10,000 gadget bundle! They are also sharing the good news through their Twitter and Facebook pages with a new Facebook feature for fans to upload and share their own celebrations of Miniclip's birthday.
Miniclip has worked hard to meet user trends and demands, and remains the first choice for quality casual games online. Most recently it has launched into the mobile games market, where titles including "Fragger", "Gravity Guy" and "iStunt 2" have reached more than 32 million downloads, and repeatedly reached the top spots in the iTunes App Charts. This has seen the company grow rapidly as it meets the demands of the ever-increasing Smartphone market.
"This is a great year for Miniclip" said Rob Small, CEO of Minclip. "10 years ago I would never have guessed we'd be where we are now, celebrating our 10th Anniversary with great successes behind us. This success is thanks to some amazing colleagues and millions of fans around the world who share with us a passion for fun, entertaining and innovative games. We love what we're doing and we're going to keep at it!"
With more plans in the pipeline, both online and in the mobile division, and with the company continuing to expand, the next ten years are set to be a very exciting time for Miniclip and its fans.
