A Brief Hippo History
- Hyper Hippo started as a Canadian company in the beautiful city of Kelowna, British Columbia.
- Many of the team members came from drawing penguins and puffles at Club Penguin, an IP created by our founder, Lance Priebe.
- Originally our Kelowna team was formed to create one game.
We spent a lot of time on that one game… unfortunately, not many people liked it.
We knew there must be a better way to build games than to spend 2 years on a project no one liked to play.
To accomplish this, we set off in a new direction, creating games in a lean development environment.
Our goal was to create game ideas quickly, and test these ideas with real players.
- We believed if players told us the game was good, then we had something into which we could invest our time and skill.
- It worked! And now we continue to build new game ideas, forming teams to focus on genres and areas of specialty.
- We expanded beyond our Kelowna roots, and now we have team members working with us in Vancouver, Seattle, Halifax, Montreal and Omaha.
- Our goal is to create new games for players of all ages, and through our games we hope to connect players around the world.
- We have also expanded from game development to sharing our experience in publishing and community management through our new arm, Screenzilla Entertainment.
