Line Up: Draw the Criminal is climbing the charts
The new hit title requires the players to use their devices to sketch suspects based on the descriptions of witnesses. Posing the question; how reliable is the memory of the witness and will your drawing be accurate enough to help you pick the real perp? The game launched on Google Play and the App Store on the evening of the second of July. In three days, Line Up: Draw the Criminal racked up 1 million downloads and it got another 500 thousand in its fourth day. It also reached number one game in the United Kingdom, Canada, Finland, and Australia. In the United States, the company was in the top-three titles. In the Simulation category, it has been a chart-topping game in 11 countries including the US and the UK.
David Darling, CEO of Kwalee said the following in a press release sent to Mobidictum:
We were very excited to launch Line Up and it’s been brilliant to see players all around the world enjoying the game as much as we do. To achieve more than 1.5 million downloads in such a short space of time is a fantastic start but we know that the game can achieve a lot more. Coming so soon after Bake it, this gives us great confidence in our ability to keep developing and launching hit games for as long as we remain a remote team – and of course, beyond! Despite our remote setting, our expansion continues quickly. In fact we now have over 35 job vacancies and although Line Up was developed in house, we are always looking for new games from external indie developers, as there is so much creative talent all over the world.
