App Treasures Unveiled!
June 4th, 2009
I have some exciting news to share: the secret project I’ve been involved with for several months was unveiled today!
- App Treasures (www.apptreasures.com)
Here’s a bit from the official press release:
Five independent iPhone game developers announced today the creation of the App Treasures label: A collection of top-quality, indie games for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
The App Treasures label is a seal of quality that consumers can trust, and will help users ﬁnd hidden gems in the App Store. When someone plays an App Treasures game and they like it, chances are they will also like the other games available from the label.
Developers releasing games under the App Treasures label are carefully considered and hand-picked to ensure maximum quality.
The App Treasures members are:
- The Blimp Pilots (Koi Pond, Distant Shore)
- Imangi Studios (Imangi, Word Squares, Little Red Sled)
- Snappy Touch (Flower Garden)
- Streaming Colour Studios (Dapple)
- Veiled Games (Up There, Payday Roulette)
You can find the full press release on the App Treasures website, if you want to read the whole thing.
We’ve been working on getting this project up and running for months, so it’s fantastic to see it finally launch. We’re starting to see some press about it today. I’ll post some links once we’ve got a few more stories to share.
One of the really exciting things we’re doing is allowing players to browse other App Treasures games from inside our games. The Dapple 1.2 update contains a new feature that lets you browse the other App Treasures games, read about them, and then buy them. Other App Treasures games will be rolling this feature out over the coming weeks as well.
We hope you enjoy it, and we hope that it helps you to find some fun games that you didn’t already know about.
