Hong Kong – February 13, 2014 – It’s only February, but it has already been a busy year for mobile game developer and publisher Animoca, which today announced the launch of several new games including Star Girl: Valentine Hearts, a new dating simulation and fashion RPG game available worldwide on Google Play and the Amazon Appstore. Animoca also announced that it has surpassed 220 million total app installs, a milestone that puts it in rare company among mobile developers.
Launching just in time for the year’s most romantic holiday, Star Girl: Valentine Hearts joins the suite of fashion RPG games in the Star Girl franchise, including Star Girl, Star Girl: Beauty Queen, Star Girl Moda Italia, and Star Girl Christmas. Players can carry over their Star Girl character from other titles in the franchise and dress up in Valentine’s Day-themed clothes and accessories in order to look their best when trying to find a special date for the big day.
