Recolor by Numbers, Kuuhubb’s Newest In-house Developed Mobile Game Product, Now Available Globally in the App Store for iOS devices.
Toronto, Canada – November 6, 2019 - Kuuhubb Inc. (“Kuuhubb” or the “Company”) (TSXV: KUU), a mobile game development and publishing company focused on providing the female audience with creative interactive gaming experiences, is pleased to announce the successful commercial release of its in-house developed and produced mobile game, Recolor By Numbers.
After a successful 7-month soft launch period, during which several user experience and monetization refinements were made based on user data and feedback, Recolor By Numbers is now commercially available globally in the App Store for iOS devices. The app was created by Kuuhubb’s internal game development team in Helsinki, comprised of industry veterans originating from Digital Chocolate, Armada, and Rovio, and features the artwork of the Company’s most successful app, Recolor, which has over 50+ million downloads to date.

The full commercial launch of Recolor By Numbers complements Kuuhubb’s existing female centric game portfolio, providing numerous marketing synergies. Kuuhubb recently started Recolor By Numbers marketing initiatives with an initial focus on cross-promotion within its large Recolor user base. Recolor By Numbers offers a fresh gamified approach to colouring, and has shown very positive initial results and responses from users familiar with the high quality Recolor brand. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are similar to, and in some cases better than, those of Recolor. The Company is encouraged by these preliminary results and expects to start paid user acquisition campaigns soon.
Recolor By Numbers utilizes the development and platform experience gained from its flagship app Recolor, to bring a new number-colouring app to the Kuuhubb game portfolio. Recolor By Numbers differs from the traditional pixel-art based colour-by-numbers game segment by offering advanced, vibrant graphics, sophisticated design images and colour palettes featuring numerous colouring effects. In this game, the user progresses from a clean black and white template towards a finalized image by matching a colour to the designated numbered field on the template. With its vast image library, Recolor By Numbers offers a more immersive gaming experience that appeals to an older audience (18 to 40-year old women) than existing colour-by-numbers apps.
“This game release is a significant milestone for Kuuhubb as it is our first commercially launched new product in over two years,” commented Jouni Keränen, CEO of Kuuhubb. “Recolor By Numbers is the last of our first-generation products and we expect a high return on investment as a result of the utilisation of the existing Recolor technology platform and content, in addition to market and user insights gained from our three years of building the Recolor community. Recolor has generated over USD 40 million in revenues so far and we anticipate that Recolor By Numbers will contribute to renewed revenue growth in the upcoming calendar year.”
Mr. Keränen also added, “Our development team has created a fun and unique new game and I am very excited to see that success continue with our second-generation products, match-3 games, which will start coming to market in the following months.”
