We always knew that Kumo Lumo was the best game of the year, but now the kind folks at Macworld have gone and agreed with us!
At a fabulous event in London on the 20th of June, Kumo Lumo took the prize for iOS Game of the Year and designer Jonathan Evans was there in person (and in a posh tux) to collect the award.
Naturally everybody here at Blitz Games Studios are over the moon with this achievement. And proudest of all are the members of Team Lumo who have seen their creation go from a crazy little idea, to Editors Choice on the App Store and now to collect a Game of the Year award.
When asked for a quote on what the award means to them, nobody from Team Lumo was able to speak because they were so busy eating cake and grinning wildly. (That was kind of messy, but give them a break – Award Winners can do this stuff.)
Philip Oliver, CEO of Blitz Games gave this tribute to the team, “We’re absolutely delighted and honoured that Kumo Lumo was named Macworld iOS Game of the Year; it’s a testament to the talented and passionate staff we have here and our continued mission of creating critically and commercially successful games.”

Kumo Lumo is still available on the App Store
All in all, it was a wonderful evening and as a reward we decided to give Lumo and all his fans a little surprise…
And what is that surprise?
You’ll have to come back in a few days to find that out!
