FROM MEDAL OF HONOR, HARRY POTTER AND F1 TO … PUMPKINS? Dundee, Tayside, 7th January 2013.

 

Take two game developers with experience working on large franchises such as Medal of Honor, Harry Potter and Formula 1; add in a new studio named after a vegetable and what do you get?

Bingo. That’s what…

Filled with a need to create games that their families would want to play for once, Binary Pumpkin are pleased to announce the release of Pumpkin Bingo onto the Android platform. Based around a simple concept, Pumpkin Bingo provides a game where memory and reactions are key.

Pumpkin Bingo has a strong social element as via Facebook integration, players can compete against their Facebook friends for the highest weekly score – and then brag about the results. At last, a reason for accepting your Mum’s Facebook Friend request!!

If that wasn’t enough, Pumpkin Bingo also includes a novel monetisation method allowing players to pay what they see fit for certain features within the game.

Since launching prior to Christmas, Pumpkin Bingo has had over 2,500 downloads and over 160 reviews with an average rating of 4.4 out of 5.

 

Co-Founder of Binary Pumpkin and the sole programmer on Pumpkin Bingo Bruce McNeish reflects, “We have taken a simple game mechanic and added some social competition as we feel that competing against your friends for a weekly high score is just fun. Our aim is to create games that the current market wants to play, and we think we have done that with Pumpkin Bingo!”

Lol Scragg, the other co-founder of the company adds. “It is always a nervous time when you release your product into the marketplace, however the amount of positive comments we have received make it all worthwhile. When you get an average rating of 4.4, you know you have created something that people enjoy playing! Now we are pushing to get the iOS version out as soon as possible.”

 

Available now for Android with an iOS version imminent, Pumpkin Bingo will also be released via the Amazon App Store and versions for Nook, Kindle, Google TV and PlayStation Mobile are also in the works.

 

The founders of Binary Pumpkin are always available for interview or comment on any digital entertainment issue, and do tend to be quite vocal and outspoken. A full press-pack for Pumpkin Bingo is also available from http://www.binarypumpkin.com/press/

Pumpkin Bingo is a free download from the Google Play store via https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.binarypumpkin.bingo
