CAMBRIDGE, MA, – JUNE 30, 2011 – SUBATOMIC STUDIOS today announced that it has signed an agreement with Amazon to launch Fieldrunners HD on the Amazon Appstore for Android as a two week exclusive, which updates the launch plan announced earlier this week. A new release date for Fieldrunners HD for Android will be announced in the near future.
“Amazon has worked with us to launch our game the way we want to launch it, which is something all independent developers want,” said Sergei Gourski, CFO. “They are acting like true partners in the launch of Fieldrunners HD, which is exactly the type of thing we want in a distribution relationship, and we know the game will have even greater success from our launch together.”
Subatomic Studios had originally planned to release Fieldrunners HD for Android on Thursday, June 30th. However, after reconsidering launch options, Subatomic decided that launching the game on the Amazon Appstore for Android was a perfect opportunity to deliver the game for free for the first 24 hours and leverage Amazon’s significant marketing and promotion capabilities to ensure the widest possible audience.
“Working with Amazon makes a lot of sense for us and our fans,” said Alec Shobin, PR and Marketing Manager at Subatomic Studios. “Launching Fieldrunners HD in the Amazon Appstore for Android gives us the flexibility to make the game free for the first 24 hours, and although we have to push the release date back to accommodate even more rigorous testing, it will ultimately enable us to deliver a thoroughly polished game that works on even more devices.”
Fieldrunners HD, the most anticipated and visually stunning game in mobile Tower Defense history, is coming to Android with updated hi-definition graphics. You will be able to defend your base and control the field using a diverse selection of upgradeable towers in an epic adventure and master a wide array of tactics and strategies to help you stand victorious against countless waves of unique land and air combatants. Do you have what it takes to defeat the fieldrunners and rise to the top as the ultimate Tower Defense champion?
