Mobile game developer Fat Fish Games has been named as the best Indie Game Developer in the UK at the Appsters 2015.

Fat Fish was recognised for its success with two franchises launched during the past year. Pixel sports franchise Tiny Sports has seen over 1 million downloads without any marketing spend, becoming the #1 free game in Ireland, and reaching the top 5 in the sports game charts in Italy, Ukraine and Russia.

Meanwhile, adventure puzzle game Bubble Heroes has been downloaded more than 360,000 times, was selected as one of Apple’s games of the week in 80 countries, and has notched up over 50 million minutes of players’ screentime – almost 100 years – in total.

“Receiving this award is recognition of the hard work that the Fat Fish Games team has put in over the past 12 months, and that all indie developers put into making games,” said the studio’s Managing Director, David Lane. “We really do seem to be getting some momentum now and hope to continue our growth over the next 12 months.”

Fat Fish is an independent games development studio creating applications for Apple iOS, Google Android and Facebook.
