[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Broken Thumbs Apps has announced that Emily's Girl Talk, a collection of four unique charming story-telling games, has been featured by Apple as "New and Noteworthy" in the US App Store. Emily's Girl Talk features the classic M.A.S.H. (Mansion, Apartment, Shack, House) and the hilariously unpredictable Lemon, as well as other fortune-telling games for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
Emily's Girl Talk also includes an in-app journal that automatically records entries for reading and sharing later as well as a sticker album that displays the cute stickers earned while playing the game. In addition, Emily's Girl Talk incorporates beautiful artwork and memorable characters, delightful background music and sounds, and numerous other special features that enhance the imaginative world of Emily's Girl Talk. Based on popular feedback, Broken Thumbs Apps is also working on a version 1.1 update to add a diary for the player to write in, along with a lock to keep the entries private, as well as adding more stickers to be earned.
This is the first time that one of the apps by Broken Thumbs Apps is being featured by Apple in the App Store and comes over 150 days after Broken Thumbs Apps released its first game, Snaked, into the App Store. As of the time of this publication, Emily's Girl Talk had reached as high as Top 30 among all Paid Games in the US App Store and nearly Top 60 among all Paid Apps in the US App Store, making it the most successful title to date from Broken Thumbs Apps.
