Boss Bunny’s strategy is built on tapping into the region’s incredible gaming audience and creating games specifically designed for MENA’s mobile gamers, while building strategic relationships with developers, the community at large, and attracting local and regional talent.
“The Middle East is home to a flourishing smartphone landscape with an average penetration of 80%+ of those under 25” added Geraint. “Add to this increased investment in infrastructure and a burgeoning tech savvy and connected young population and we have the makings of an extremely dynamic market for mobile gaming with incredible potential for us as a homegrown developer and publisher. We aim to become a key part of this eco-system by providing quality and Arabised mobile titles to the millions of gamers in the region.”
Boss Bunny will start to roll out its first titles over the coming weeks. “We will be launching initially, with some test titles in order to establish the best routes to market for Hyper Casual games in the region and to refine our messaging. This will be quickly followed with the release of our first “full” games in June and a continuous roll out of new games every month. The planned format will allow us to both be nimble and adjust to the player experience feedback we derive from the games” States Annabel Bristow, Boss Bunny Games Marketing Director.
Boss Bunny will be based in a custom-built development studio in Dubai Production City, which will house the full team. “The GCC & MENA have established themselves as leading regional and global hubs for creativity and innovation” adds Aziza “and we look forward to contributing towards the mobile gaming growth for these regions supporting the development of mobile games. We have a clear vision of becoming a leading developer and publisher of hyper casual and casual mobile games, and I believe we have the right ambition and market conditions to attract and nurture the best local and regional talents to achieve this goal.”
