Simogo’s First Game ‘Kosmo Spin’ Celebrates Its 5th Birthday by Raising Its Price

TouchArcade Rating:

Simogo is a developer that marches to the beat of their own drum. You don’t need to look any further than their games to see that. Titles like Device 6 ($3.99) and The Sailor’s Dream ($3.99) blur the lines between games, storytelling, and interactive media, and Year Walk ($3.99) was an uncharacteristically unsettling experience from the normally upbeat developer that utilized a really unique companion app (Free) to flesh out its world in interesting ways. In keeping with their tradition of being untraditional, Simogo is celebrating the 5th birthday of their very first iOS game Kosmo Spin ($2.99) by actually raising its price rather than dropping it. If you’re unfamiliar with Kosmo Spin, then check out this sickeningly adorable trailer.

Simogo didn’t end up on my radar until they released the sublime Bumpy Road ($2.99) in mid-2011, which remains one of my all-time favorites to this day, so I missed out on Kosmo Spin initially. However, I eventually did give it a shot and found it to be just the type of experience we’d come to expect from Simogo at that time: Adorable characters, a whimsical art style, and a simple but clever use of touchscreen mechanics. Of course they’ve branched out quite a bit since those days, but Kosmo Spin still holds up incredibly well today. My only request would be an update to support modern screen sizes (and one for Beat Sneak Bandit ($2.99) while we’re at it!), but that’s a minor complaint.

Kosmo Spin originally launched at 99¢ and has only had a price change once when it was briefly free for a few days back in 2011. Its new birthday price is $2.99, still woefully cheap for such a lovely little experience. So if you’re into paying for games and hate the “race to the bottom" mentality of the App Store, buying Kosmo Spin for triple its original asking price is a fun way to support valuing video games and a great developer.
