Ludwigshafen, Germany - smuttlewerk interactive is happy to
announce the first
worldwide massive multiplayer tournament for its
free to play endless-runner Nosferatu - Run from the Sun. The
tournament will be cross-plattform (Android and iOS) and will begin
on December 16th and end on December 27th.
Each player chooses a side to play on, either for "Santa Nos" or
"Goblinatu". Players then play the game like always, collecting
presents along the way. Each present thus collected counts towards
the total team score. Players on the winning side will get either
"Santa Nos" or "Goblinatu" as special character after the
tournament has ended.
Every day during the course of the tournament from 7PM to 9PM,
the amount of presents is multiplied.
smuttlewerk did a similiar Halloween tournament in late October
in German speaking countries only and the feedback for the event
was overwhelming. Players from Germany, Austria and Switzerland
battled it out and collected over 2 million pumpkins during the
course of the event.
Nosferatu has been downloaded 2.5 million times
(cross-plattform) since launch in February 2012 aquiring about
55000 ratings with a score of 4.5 stars.
The game evolved heavily since launch and now features 16
different Nosferatu characters, 4 different themes, the Guild of
the Vampires (daily missions) and many gameplay tweaks.
The game is available for free on
Supported languages: English, Chinese, French, German, Italian,
