Mika Kuusisto, Kopla Games CEO:
You can easily see that Diablo and clickers like Tap Titans inspired us a lot but the interesting thing is that Nonstop Knight can’t just be shoved to one of those categories. It is somewhere in between and funnily some have described it with the oxymoron “idle action RPG”, which actually describes the game pretty well.
What we are the most proud of is that we’ve really innovated how the action RPG gameplay should feel like on mobile. People who have never even heard of Diablo can get into it easily but still more experienced dungeon crawlers feel like at home. Also the appeal is not limited to just East or West: U.S and China are our top2 markets! This all is important as our mission is to introduce action RPGs to everyone.
Playable with one thumb and designed to instantly pick up and enjoy – the never-ending quest of Nonstop Knight awaits! Tackle the adventure at your own pace and earn rewards even while taking a break!
What makes my game unique?
Nonstop Knight is one of the first games on mobile to utilise one-thumb controls in an intuitive way for action RPGs, while the autoplay and offline features allow this game to seamlessly fit into a person's daily routine. Most importantly, to present such a fresh, genre-breaking experience on mobile is a special achievement, particularly in such a crowded marketplace.
Why could my game win an award?
Nonstop Knight takes the long-lifetime and good monetisation aspects of action RPGs and packages that into an experience accessible to everyone, regardless of their gaming experience. It is an action RPG built specifically for mobile, and because it is playable with just one thumb, it is designed for on-the-go interaction throughout a player's day.
Nonstop Knight is a game that has the depth of features to appeal to a hardcore RPG fan, but also the ease of use and simplicity to catch casual gamers. It has set a benchmark as to how action RPGs are developed for mobile devices, and with over 7 million downloads to date, has been hugely successful since its launch.
