Developed by BonusXP, a team including veteran developers from games such as Age of Empires and Halo Wars, Cavemania has the honor of being the first global mobile release from Yodo 1, a leading publisher of western smartphone games to the Chinese market.
Cavemania will be coming to mobile devices in mid-September, and will be the first of many games planned for release from Yodo 1.
“We designed Cavemania’s irreverent style to pull people in, but the strategic depth and replay value seal the deal,” says Dave Pottinger, explaining why his studio chose Yodo1 as the game’s publisher. “BonusXP is full of dedicated, passionate people. The whole Yodo1 team won us over by loving Cavemania as much as we do. Henry and Jung share our ‘GAME COMES FIRST’ focus and made us feel like part of their family, which is all too rare in this business.”
Yodo1 CEO and co-founder Henry Fong believes Cavemania is a fresh new variation on the match three game that stands a very good chance of gaining both mid-core and casual players: “We’ve seen a lot of variations on the match three genre with jewels, candy, and so on,” says Fong, “So we love how the BonusXP team re-imagined that mechanic by adding resource management, playable heroes, combat, and a lot of other features which made Age of Empires so great.”
