COPENHAGEN, July 27th, 2018: Hugo Games A/S (OMX: HUGO) is pleased to report that the recently released mobile game “Nyjah Huston #Skatelife” is gaining international attention.
The game, which stars skateboard icon Nyjah Huston, was launched worldwide approximately one month ago. So far, the game has been a “Number One Worldwide Trend of the Day” on TrendHunter.com and has been recommended by the British newspaper The Mirror.
Furthermore, the game has now been highlighted as a featured new game on the Apple App Store. The attention pleases Hugo Games CEO Henrik Nielsen.
“It’s extremely gratifying that the media and the App Store have chosen to highlight ‘Nyjah Huston #Skatelife’,” says Hugo Games CEO Henrik Nielsen. “The reason is that the competition for consumer mindshare is fierce. Thousands of new games are released every month. Right now, our game is highlighted to users on the Apple App Store all around the world, meaning that we are reaching potential players that may not have known about the game.”
“Nyjah Huston #Skatelife” has been downloaded more than 170,000 times since the worldwide launch on June 29th. The game allows players to team up with the famous skateboarder in his first official mobile game and steer him through a challenging environment in Venice Beach, California.
The 23-year-old Nyjah Huston is widely recognized as one of the world’s most influential skateboarders. He has won several big titles — the latest on Sunday, July 22nd, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he won the Skateboard Street competition at the X Games. Nyjah Huston will be using his social media channels to promote the game.
The news about “Nyjah Huston #Skatelife” does not change any of Hugo Games’ previously announced financial information.
