Flushy Fish is a combination of fun and entertaining gameplay for everyone to learn fast. It was designed to be mind blowing and comfortable virtual reality experience that sets new standards for mobile VR entertainment.
Flushy Fish is now available for Oculus Rift that was acquired by Facebook and Gear VR and will soon expand to all viable VR and gaming platforms including iPhone VR. It´s a great time to take a break from Pokemon and dive into virtual reality with Flushy Fish VR or fly to space to try score 2020 with Space 2020.
Space 2020 is a race to space mobile game tournament to see who will be the best player and first to hit the score 2020. Space 2020 is now on the Apple AppStore and Google Play for Android. The best players of Space 2020 will be rewarded with Space 2020 merchandising and virtual reality related products.
Flushy Fish is one of the first VR mobile games accessible to everyone so our friends, kids and grandparents can enjoy Flushy Fish and virtual reality like they were able to enjoy Angry Birds on the first touch screen phones.
We started to create VR games because we felt like we could make our dream worlds come alive with them. When our co-founder Mauricio Hollando started the project I was very excited and the first try of the experience was mind blowing. I have never seen game development happen so fast or anyone so excited about a project like he was. When I first got to play Flushy Fish I noticed it was different from anything I have experienced before but still I knew right away how to play the game.”
Mauricio Hollando, Chief Technical Officer and Co-Founder of Silvermile states, “VR and Flushy Fish opened an exciting new possibilities for us. Touch screen games are still fun and interesting business for us but we are also very interested in creating the most exciting and fun VR mobile games. We are taking all our best learnings from our previous game development experience to VR. Creating new worlds and immersive gameplay for everybody feels like the best value of our work and focus. I´ve never seen as strong reactions from people playing games like Flushy Fish VR. People say it´s different from anything they´ve ever experienced in their lives and keep on playing for hours. The game includes secret levels and we will keep working for years to make it better and add more content.
We have big plans for virtual reality and we are opening crowdfunding campaigns to create new VR worlds for all of us to enjoy and bring the Flushy Fish franchise to all platforms. Flushy Fish is now available in the Oculus store (Acquired by Facebook) which announced that there was already over 1 million people in April 2016 playing with Samsung Gear (SSNLF) and Flushy Fish is going to be one of the first games for iPhone VR.”
SILVERMILE´s President, Juhana Kotilainen states, “The current stage of VR feels very similar to early times of Angry Birds and touchscreen devices. The growth of VR and Flushy Fish is fast and it feels like when I got my first iPhone.
Meanwhile the VR market accelerates fast and the technology becomes available to all 7 billion people. We decided to launch Space 2020 a very addictive mobile game in association with Teravision for the people who don´t have access to VR technology. Space 2020 will soon have some of the newest technology for people to communicate inside games and send challenges to each other. The first players to hit the score 2020 will get unexpected rewards and we are working to expand Space 2020 to VR platforms soon.”
Finland is a great launch pad for the virtual reality and mobile games industry being home to some of the most successful mobile games companies, such as Rovio Entertainment and Supercell with $10.2 billion valuation.
