In 2008, TibiaME more than doubled its subscriber base, followed by another very successful first six months in 2009. Especially the cooperation with one of Indonesia’s biggest mobile network providers had a significant impact on sales.

In addition to these content updates, CipSoft is already working on a new client version, high resolution graphics and the release for other major mobile platforms. “We are quite optimistic, that all these projects will help TibiaME to grow further and to become the most popular mobile MMORPG worldwide.” says Zuckerer.
