)-- Independent game developer Hey Snails Inc. formally launched two new Facebook games at the recent Game Developers Conference – GDC Play Event in San Francisco. Game creators and company founders Redentor Quiambao and Harold Khan unveiled to a group of game enthusiasts, press and distributors their latest game release: Letter UP and Hey Snails Virtual World.
Letter UP – play word game in real time
Letter UP is a multiplayer word game that is played in "real-time" – a key strength that many who have tried the game find really exciting and a lot more fun. The game was launched in beta recently and within a week, the app has garnered more than a thousand installs on Facebook and now growing at a more exciting pace as the game attracts more fans and followers. At present, development of Letter UP to make it available on mobile devices is already underway.
Hey Snails Virtual World – fun and safe virtual world for kids
Hey Snails is a fun and safe virtual world for kids where they can chat, hang around, make new friends and play games. Kids who are familiar with virtual world gaming like Disney’s Club Penguin will love checking hanging around Hey Snails’ virtual world too as it is filled with lovable characters, funny tricks and real-time communication with their friends.
Hey Snails shows so much potential as it builds on the strength of its unique and lovely characters. Snails, like birds that are angry, are uncommon and once it gains some traction, have a potential to explode into a great merchandise/licensing behemoth. "Snails" are going to be big this year. The fact that a major animated film from Dreamworks (Turbo) featuring a snail as the main protagonist, only adds excitement and buzz that can only benefit Hey Snails.
