Back in January we wrote about the Finnish multi platform gaming house RedLynx surpassing the half a million sales mark for their TrialsHD game on the XBOX 360. Last week they announced that altogether they have sold over 1.5 million games in 2009. Last year, they published four games Trials HD (Xbox LIVE Arcade), Monster Trucks Nitro (PC), Monster Truck Nitro (iPhone) and DrawRace (iPhone).
RedLynx has also made available many of their games online as browser based versions. These games are available on over 5000 websites and altoghether have they have been played over 100 million times, according to Tero Virtala, CEO of RedLynx. Figures like these confirm that RedLynx has hit it big time and is well on its way to becoming one of the respected gaming houses out there, if it already isn’t one.
Tero Virtala also states that they are releasing 8-10 games this year. Their success, according to Antti Ilvessuo, Creative Director, is their will to create games that appeal to global audiences. I’m sure partnerships with distributors like Microsoft won’t hurt in the process.
