I'm Spending Valentines With…
No, not that lame ‘ex…. Xbox’ thing that’s going around, this is for the even forever alone people that can’t even claim that. This is about the over one million people that have downloaded the Lite version of My Virtual Girlfriend and My Virtual Boyfriend.
“It’s a big milestone for us to cross that 1 millionth download”, says Mike Amerson, President of WET Productions. “Both games average 3000 new installs per day and have a monthly active user rate of over 100,000 players.
Due to their success, we recently expanded into offering ad space across our games, allowing other developers a way to gain exposure for their apps across our entire player base. This has been proven especially effective with other free apps that have to do with dating and relationships.”
Mental Gamers tried to contact some people that had downloaded the apps and all that was receieved was, “Ugh, doing err.. homework” and “I don’t know what you’re talking about, I’ve never heard of su… *from pocket* ‘Don’t leave me waiting, come back..’ erm, NO, GO AWAY!”.
If you’re going to be alone with your iOS device this Valentine’s Day, you might as well get a feeling what it might be like to have a boy or girlfriend by taking a look at these trailers.
