Nexters launches Island Questaway, a new adventure game, to increase casual gaming share
LIMASSOL, Cyprus., Nov. 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nexters Inc. (Nasdaq: GDEV), an international game development company which strives to introduce the joy of core gaming experiences to casual players, has soft launched Island Questaway, a new casual game previously available under the working title Puzzle Island, on iOS and Android.
This new title continues Nexters’ efforts to grow its presence in the casual gaming market in addition to the midcore segment where the company is well presented by Hero Wars and Throne Rush. Island Questaway offers fresh and unique gameplay through a blend of different genres with a farming game that features an engaging storyline as well as a variety of puzzles to solve for an exciting, fun gaming experience.
“Island Questaway is a new, important expansion of Nexters’ portfolio, as it allows us to diversify beyond our strong midcore portfolio into casual gaming,” says Anton Reinhold, Chief Operating Officer at Nexters. “Our mission is to enable casual gamers to experience the same level of gameplay and narrative that core players enjoy and Island Questaway represents a new, growing style of gameplay that offers the deep mechanics expected in midcore with the accessibility of a casual title.”
Island Questaway was created by the team that previously worked on Island Experiment - the first casual game by Nexters. The current version already boasts extensive content and engaging play mechanics while the development team is working on a story expansion, new gameplay features, and live events.
This is the second casual game Nexters has launched in the second half of 2021. Chibi Island was the first and officially launched on July 27th. It was also a successor of sorts to Island Experiment, retaining the key elements of the original that made it popular, while updating and reworking the game in several areas to make it more modern and engaging.
Nexters anticipates both Chibi Island and Island Questaway to not only build off the original title, but to greatly expand Nexters’ casual gaming audience with both titles appealing to their own unique player base.
Nexters is an international game development company which strives to introduce the joy of core gaming experiences to casual players. Thanks to such hit games like Hero Wars, Throne Rush, and others the company reached over 200 million installs worldwide and became one of the top five independent mobile game companies in Europe.
