TAIPEI, February 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — GigaMedia Limited (NASDAQ: GIGM) today announced that the Company has released four Role-Playing games at the end of December 2014. One is for PC-based players and the other three are for mobile game players. For mobile games, players can play them on iOS or Android. The most popular one among the four games has attracted more than 40,000 members per month since its release. And it was even listed on top 10 of Google Play’s latest popular games in Taiwan. Its pay ratio for the month of January was at about 4.4% and its ARPU (Average Rate Per User) was NTD5,000 (equivalent to about US$157). The other games’ average ARPU for the month of January was about NTD1,500 (equivalent to about US$47), which was considered an adequate performance in the Taiwan mobile game market.
Before the Chinese spring festival, the Company will launch another new game which is a 3D anime-style RPG and will enable the players to enjoy both the visual and the audio effects when playing. The background of the game’s contents is epic alike. Players play the role as savior of the doomsday to experience a series of adventures for saving the world. Besides, players can not only choose five hero characters at a time to forge an alliance but also invite their friends to play together in a team at the same time. The Company believes that this 3D anime-style RPG will attract more diversified players and hopefully outperform for a success. This new game will be available for both iOS and Android devices upon its official release.
In summary, the Company will have five games, including the new 3D anime-style RPG, available on the market for players in February; moreover, will continue to increase marketing for more exposure for the incoming Chinese New Year‘s holidays in order to acquire more players and better the revenue.
