OULU, Finland, Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Fail Hard is an action-packed and physics-based game from Oulu-based studio Viima Games Ltd. The game is published by Fingersoft and is about a stuntman who tries the craziest stunts, only to (you guessed it) fail hard in all the best possible ways. He falls so hard and often that it almost hurts to play it. It¹s fun for the whole ER!
The stuntman may fail (hard), but the game is destined to succeed. Fail Hard has over four million downloads on Android, and in Apple’sApp Store the game immediately gained number one spots in the racing and action categories in several countries, including the USA and Germany. And what’s more, Fail Hard is ranked the fourth most popular iPhone app in the USA at the moment.
This is the first collaboration between Fingersoft and Viima Games – and there will be more.
“We are excited to get Fail Hard out on iOS. The game is quite a ride, and it’s been great to work on it with the talented weirdos at Fingersoft”, says Viima Games CTO Visa Smolander.
Fingersoft itself has a proven track record in crazy and impressive stunts. Fingersoft is known for its global hits Hill Climb Racing and Benji Bananas. HCR has held the number one spots in Apple’s App Store and Google Play in several countries, including USA, India, Germany, Russia and Spain. Today Fingersoft games have globally over 160 million downloads altogether.
Fail Hard will follow in the footsteps of Benji Bananas to become the second co-published Fingersoft game. While not aiming to be a full-time publisher, Fingersoft will continue full-time world dominance with carefully selected titles.
“Fail Hard has a great set of elements we like to see in mobile games. Equally important is that with Viima Games, we found a capable and passionate team to hang out with,” says Jarkko Paalanen, Business Development Director of Fingersoft.
