Social game developer CrowdStar has announced that, after achieving success on platforms like Facebook and the iPhone, it will now be expanding to Russia with the release of its top-grossing game It Girl.
The game is already available on Russian social network Odnoklassniki.ru, and over the coming months will be launching on a pair of other networks in the country as well: Vkontakte.ru, and Mail.ru. To help with the expansion CrowdStar has partnered with Russian distributor 101XP.
“We found an excellent market and partners in Russia to globalize It Girl,” said Ian Sherbin, CrowdStar’s Head of Global Business Development. “We are pleased with the initial launch results that our Russian distribution partner 101XP has achieved for us.”
Though no official announcements have been made, the developer also plans on releasing other games in the Russian market as well. Other CrowdStar-developed titles include Top Girl, Happy Aquarium, and Mighty Pirates.
