Run That Town wins award

17 July 2013

Run That Town was recently named the Favourite Website Awards (FWA) Mobile of the Day. With over 60,000 downloads and a four star rating, Run That Town is proving to be a big hit.

On Friday, 12 July 2013 Run That Town won FWA Mobile of the Day which is an industry recognised internet award program and is the most visited website award program on the internet, with over 170 million site visits as of November 2012.

Run That Town puts the player in charge of any Australian neighbourhood and challenges them to make planning decisions based on 2011 Census data to boost popularity, grow the town and keep the locals happy. The game centres on town building activities where players complete projects to influence the growth, direction and happiness of residents in their chosen post code. The player succeeds by evaluating the initial Census data and making sound decisions on the types of projects to undertake.
