KONGREGATE & HYPER HIPPO ANNOUNCE ADVENTURE CAPITALIST SEQUEL, ‘ADVENTURE COMMUNIST’ MOBILE GAME
San Francisco, CA (May 17, 2017) – Kongregate, a leading publisher of mobile, PC, and web games, and Canadian based game developer, Hyper Hippo Productions, today announced AdVenture Communist, the follow up to the breakout hit idle game, AdVenture Capitalist. With more than 20 million mobile players around the world, AdVenture Capitalist defined the idle genre with its charming and straightforward gameplay. AdVenture Communist continues to innovate the genre by adding a complex crafting system to create a unique and extremely deep experience for players.
“AdVenture Communist is the next evolution in economic simulation games, with deeper strategy than its Capitalist predecessor,” said Lance Priebe, CEO at Hyper Hippo Productions. “Where AdVenture Capitalist has all resources pooled into a central currency, the almighty dollar, AdVenture Communist has many different currencies that are all interconnected. You need to grow and evolve all your resources equally in order to grow your empire. This complexity adds a layer of strategy that you don’t normally find in other idle games.”
“We’re thrilled to have both of the groundbreaking AdVenture titles in our publishing portfolio,” said Emily Greer, president and co-founder of Kongregate. “I knew that AdVenture Capitalist was something special when I looked around the office and realized the entire office was playing it! Today it’s been played on mobile devices by more than 20 million budding Capitalists around the world. And with AdVenture Communist, Hyper Hippo Productions continues to challenge the market with genre defining gameplay experiences.”
AdVenture Communist is coming soon to iPhone, iPad, Android and is currently available on Steam Early Access. You can find additional information about the game on the official Twitter and Facebook accounts.
