Berlin, 24. July 2009 – “Brain Buddies”, the game that has become the new favorite of Facebook users, achieved the mark of one million users in the record time of only three weeks of being online. Louise S. from Miami, USA is the one millionth user.

There seems to be no end to Brain Buddie’s growth: The game already belongs to the Top 40 games on Facebook – out of a total of 10,000 games – adding 100,000 users daily. Overall the brain training game has reached 30 million minutes of play time already. The availability of Brain Buddies in eight languages plays out to its advantage: It has attracted users from 208 countries, among them Albania, Rwanda, and Vanuatu, an island in the South Pacific.

“We are very happy about the extraordinary start, but are in no ways resting on our laurels”, says founder and managing director Jens Begemann. “Quite to the contrary: we are continuously working on the game and have already included a number of ideas from our users. In addition, we will be integrating four new mini games soon”.

The brain training game that was launched on July 1st is the first game of the international game development company wooga from Berlin. Currently the team is already working on completely new games that the company will publish in the next few months, building on the momentum of Brain Buddies.

Brain Buddies offers its users a playful way to determine their brain weight. The game is focusing on a contest among friends to find the one with the heaviest brain. A set of eight mini games as well as entertaining graphics make the game fun to play for a long time.
