[prMac.com] Turku, Finland - TicBits Ltd, a leading Finnish game developer, is pleased to announce the addition of a new character to iAssociate 2. "The Owl", is set to make his debut in the next update, released in time for Valentine's Day. At the same time, fans of the game will also be rewarded with a free new level created specifically for Valentine's Day.
"Owls have always been a symbol of wisdom, so we thought that he would be a great addition to our game. We're sure, too, that his role in our game will develop as time goes on, so that it won't just be all about mice and other small rodents." said Niklas Wahrman, Creative Director at TicBits Ltd.
The user base of iAssociate 2 has grown rapidly since it was launched in late May, and in only 8 months, more than half a million people have played the game. And on Facebook, fans have created a growing community, sharing tips and tricks with each other.
"Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, we thought that it'd be great if we could reward our loyal fans and give them something back. We're really proud of all their help in both growing our fan community and keeping it active." said Fredrik Wahrman, CEO of TicBits Ltd. "We feel that the best way to reward them is to give them a new level for free, and since it's Valentine's Day, we decided to create a level around just that theme."
