App Treasures Independent Label Borne Today, In The Year of Our Lord, 2009, 4 June
1081 AD, Alexios I Komnenos was crowned Byzantine Emperor. In 1814, Napolean reneges his throne for the first time. And, in 2009, App Treasures, born from 5 independent developers gulps in its first hurried breaths. App Treasures are a hand-picked collection of top quality games for our beloved iDevice including our current Clan Wars competition, Imangi!
June 4, 2009 — Five independent iPhone game developers announced today the
creation of the App Treasures label: A collection of top-quality, indie games for the
iPhone and iPod Touch.
The App Treasures label is a seal of quality that consumers can trust, and will help
users ﬁnd hidden gems in the App Store. When someone plays an App Treasures game
and they like it, chances are they will also like the other games available from the label.
As the App Store starts being dominated by big companies and publishers, indie
developers feel their efforts donʼt get the level of visiblity they deserve. “This is our way
of combining resources to become a bigger player” said Keith Shepherd, CEO of Imangi
Studios, “while retaining our independence and without any of the drawbacks and
strings attached that come from working with a publisher.”
Developers releasing games under the App Treasures label are carefully considered
and hand-picked to ensure maximum quality. A few more developers will be able to join
in the upcoming months.
