Hyper Hippo and Miniclip Offer Exclusive Preview of Upcoming Mech Mice Game
First Open Beta Game to be Offered on Miniclip
KELOWNA, British Columbia, Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Now there are even more opportunities to “build your squad and join the battle!” Hyper Hippo Productions is excited to announce that Miniclip, the world’s largest privately owned online gaming site, will offer an exclusive preview of Mech Mice, the upcoming turn-based, tactical squad game from two of the creative minds behind Disney’s Club Penguin. Mech Mice is the first title to ever be offered on Miniclip while still in open beta, and is a natural fit for the sites’ ever-growing collection of the internet’s favorite games.
“This is exciting for us because of Hyper Hippo’s track-record, along with the vision and ambition of the venture,” said Jamie Cason, Miniclip Executive Producer, Publishing. “We believe in Mech Mice and relish the chance to be part of its foundation. Given the scale of our reach, reputation and 110 million gamers across platforms worldwide, we think Miniclip is the perfect partner for Hyper Hippo and Mech Mice.”
“The endeavor with Miniclip will provide us with the amazing opportunity to put Mech Mice in front of the very audience it was created for,” said Pascale Audette, Co-founder and CEO at Hyper Hippo. “When Lance Priebe, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Development Officer at Hyper Hippo, first created Club Penguin, Miniclip played an essential role in building the massive community of fans the game still holds to this day. Lance and I are thrilled to once again be working alongside Miniclip for our next property and look forward to growing a new community of fans with one of the most respected gaming sites online.”
In addition to this huge development, the Mech Mice Founder program is now available for all players on Miniclip. The “Mech Mice Founder” program provides fans with the opportunity to pre-order every future Mech Mice level at a huge discount prior to the game’s full launch on October 8th. As a bonus, Mech Mice Founders will also unlock exclusive characters for their squad only available during the open beta. “The more enemies you defeat, the more YOU get!” Lastly, Hyper Hippo has also promised to match all pre-order purchases by donating free “Mech Mice Founder” accounts to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
