Kempele, Finland, July 7th, 2014 – Fingersoft, the Finnish game publisher and developer, today announced its first international game studio collaboration as it released Irish game studio SixMinute’s puzzle game Pick A Pet for iOS and Android. As of today, the game is available for free in the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store around the world.

SixMinute is a Dublin based game studio founded in 2012 by five game industry pioneers, who previously worked at PopCap Games, developing titles such as Plants Vs Zombies, Bejeweled and Peggle.

Pick A Pet is an exciting and innovative new puzzle game blending traditional match three elements with deeper collection and evolution mechanics. Pick A Pet provides a unique gaming experience that is simple and charming, yet challenging and increasingly engrossing as you strategize which pets to take with you. Novel level types create previously unseen challenges requiring special powers provided by your collection of pets. Each pet can be leveled up until it evolves, granting the player even greater power in beating the levels.

“While looking for a publisher we had the ideal partner in mind, and Fingersoft and its pro team has matched with our expectations,” John Halloran, Head of Studio at SixMinute explains. “It is a pleasure working with the team behind the world-famous hit game Hill Climb Racing.”

“During the past year we have received dozens of games for review from numerous game studios from all over the world. Pick A Pet immediately drew our attention,” Jaakko Kylmäoja, Fingersoft’s VP of Publishing says. “SixMinute is our first international publishing partner, and we are happy to collaborate with this award-winning and experienced team of gaming professionals.”
