2012 has been good to CB Labs, the small indie developer firm who put out their first game The Adventures of Timmy: Run, Kitty, Run last October. The firm itself is an incubation division of Crossborders, a digital content studio. Since its release the game has seen a lot of success, with ratings in the App Store consistently in the 4.5 stars range (out of 5) and being nominated for a plethora of different awards.
Yesterday, however, came the crowning achievement for the title to date. After a two week voting campaign open to the public, The Adventures of Timmy came out in an early lead and kept the streak up right through the end.
"We were humbled by the response," said Crossborders CEO Brian Edelman on receiving the news. "We're incredibly passionate about the quality of the game, we love it and we love the fact that so many other people seem to love it as well".
The game itself tells the tale of a young school boy named Timmy who wears a cat suit to school one day. While all the other kids on the playground make fun of Timmy, one girl named Kitty tries to befriend him. Unfortunately, Mitch, the school's bully, has already taken a liking to Kitty and kidnaps her. Timmy must find a way to stop Mitch and his minions and get Kitty back safe and sound.
Previously CB Labs has partnered with DoSomething.org to help raise awareness on teen bullying in schools. The goal was to get teens to fill out a short survey on Facebook, whose results will be shared at the school, district, and state level. In addition the game itself had been updated to include anti-bullying tips.
