Hitcents, creators of the award-winning Draw A Stickman online game, have taken the game to new levels of mobility and creativity with today’s launch of Draw A Stickman EPIC for iOS and Windows 8.

The online version of the game, which launched in 2011, went viral with over 1 million page views in just 24 hours, and won numerous awards including 3 Webby awards.  Hitcents re-imagined the game for mobile devices where the touch interface offers new opportunities to expand player creative freedom.  Instead of limiting the game’s adventure to a pre-defined story, Draw A Stickman EPIC drops a user-drawn stickman into a fantasy world where every part of the environment is interactive.

Using Xamarin’s platform and MonoGame, Draw A Stickman EPIC is available for iOS, Windows 8 and soon Android devices, with an estimated 95% source code sharing across platforms. Jonathan Peppers, Hitcents senior application developer recently reported in a PC World article that he was able to get the Windows 8 version of the game up and running “in less than four hours, not counting the time to resize things to fit the new screen resolution.”

“As a paid game, reaching users on all major device platforms has significant impact on Draw A Stickman’s financial success.”  said Chris Mills, President of Hitcents.  “Xamarin enables us to increase app revenue by making multi-platform app development possible.”

Draw A Stickman EPIC is unlike any other game out there – part adventure, part role-playing, part puzzle game – and 100% fun.
