More Rogue Than Ever - Download the New RogueTrader App on Your iPhone

LONDON, January 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

The London based app studio Acespire is proud to announce a massive update for their game RogueTrader. RogueTrader is the first and only arcade trading game in the AppStore. If you embody a young ambitious trader, willing to make millions trading stocks, buy low, sell high, make huge profits and climb your way up to Wall Street. Download at http://bit.ly/RTrader.

What's new

RogueTrader now features power up cards that you either collect or redeem to help you trade more efficiently. Make sure you don't lose too many trades otherwise your stamina will go down pretty quickly! If you think you can make more cash than your friends, jump on GameCenter, which is now supported. RogueTrader also integrates with the reward platform Kiip. When making successful trades or achieving important milestones you will receive a Kiip reward, which is a real voucher or discount from one of their many partners. The rewards fit nicely in the story, being displayed as a "golden parachute" for super successful traders. RogueTrader now opens to 5 levels with 15 more in the pipeline, Acespire says.


Background

RogueTrader is the first game from the collaboration between Acespire, a creative studio and DeepSine, a design and development company, both based in London. They released the first version of RogueTrader in the AppStore by mid September as a proof of concept and they accumulated over 5,000 players with no marketing. "We released a simple version to see if there was an audience for this game as we've had hoped," Samuel Huber, Acespire's CEO says. "And we weren't disappointed at all. We've also been featured in the AppStore and several publications which was a great achievement".

Future

The team has a dedicated team member for user acquisition, appointed in January, bringing the headcount to 4. "We want to keep it as lean as possible," Samuel says. Acespire is now looking for investment to develop and market the next version of the app, including an Android version.
