Big Fish Gets Behind Android Games, With More Than Two Dozen Android Games Available On Its Global PC, And Mobile App Store

SEATTLE, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Big Fish, the world's largest producer of casual games, is rapidly expanding its Android business and simplifying the discoverability of Big Fish Android games by including Android offerings in its global PC, and Mobile App Store. Big Fish currently offers more than two dozen Android games in its app store, and added another high-quality adventure to its Android mix today — "Shiver: Vanishing Hitchhiker" , one of the company's most popular hidden object adventure games.


Big Fish is committed to adding several new Android games per month, and expects its Android business to grow much like its iOS business, which doubled offerings over the past year and currently includes more than 300+ unique iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch games. The company's Android growth is driven by the company's own in-house studios and its network of more than 600 developers worldwide.

"By increasing our release velocity of high-quality Big Fish Android games, we are ensuring that customers with Android devices can enjoy the same Big Fish entertainment they enjoy on their PC, Mac, iPad and iPhone devices," said Chris George, Vice President and General Manager of Big Fish Mobile Games. "And, there is no better example of high-quality Big Fish entertainment than Shiver: Vanishing Hitchhiker, which is now available for Android."

"Shiver: Vanishing Hitchhiker" stands out as one of Big Fish's most popular hidden object puzzle adventures.  The player's spooky journey begins after picking up a mysterious hitchhiker, who vanishes soon after.  In order to track her down, the player must venture through eerie landscapes on the quest to figure out where the unknown woman has gone. 

Shiver: Vanishing Hitchhiker is available for $2.99 at Big Fish Games,, and Google Play.
