Toronto, Canada - June 20, 2017
-- Kuuhubb Inc. (TSX-V: KUU) (the “Company
” or “Kuuhubb
”) announces that it has finalized an agreement with Cherrypick Games to become its global distributor for its "My Hospital" simulation game.
Cherrypick Games is a global game developer and publisher based in Warsaw, Poland. The company was founded in 2014 by a team of industry veterans, all of whom have extensive experience in creating and marketing games for all leading gaming platforms. Cherrypick Games has developed and published 15 games including the successful My Hospital for iOS, Android and macOS. My Hospital has 3.5 M downloads and Kuuhubb plans to boost its marketing substantially in coming months by publishing it with Kuuhubb´s strategic partners globally.

Additionally, working with a strongly connected partner is key to success in the Asian market and Kuuhubb is definitely the right match”,
