As part of Apple’s ongoing feature of Canadian developers, the latest to be named one of ‘Canada’s best game makers’ in the App Store is Vancouver-based Klei, the developers behind the hit game Don’t Starve: Pocket Edition.
Apple says “Vancouver-based Kelie has come a long way since its start in a rented basement. The developer’s now world-renowned for crafting deep, distinct worlds—from the quirky dark setting of Don’t Starve to the vibrant techno-future of Invisible, Inc.”
The dedicated page in iTunes also details ‘Games that inspired the team,’ along with ‘The studio’s favourite games to play’, features their other game, Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked Games.
As part of Canada 150, Apple has featured apps Made in Ottawa, an Unapologetically Canadian section, Canada’s Best Game Maker: RAC7, apps Made in Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto-Waterloo, Montreal and more.
