GDEV | October 27, 2023 – Limassol, Cyprus – GDEV Inc. (NASDAQ: GDEV), an international gaming and entertainment company (“GDEV” or “the Company”), announces the global release of its game Island Hoppers (formerly known as Island Questaway) following the successful completion of its soft launch.

During the soft launch period that started in November 2021, the game exhibited remarkable growth, accumulating over $30 million in bookings and more than 12 million downloads worldwide. It already placed 7th in the Farming Games category by revenue and is now ranked 5th in terms of downloads.


Island Hoppers is now entering a scaling phase, with increased marketing investments expected to fuel revenue and player base growth. As of September 2023, it is enjoyed by over 1 million players monthly.
