“Anipang for KakaoTalk,” a social game, passed the 10-million mark in daily active user (DAU) numbers in just two months after being launched.
Sundaytoz, the developer of the social game, announced on October 1 that Anipang surpassed the 10-million mark in DAU, with the number of users who have installed and enjoy the game estimated at 17 million and the number of concurrent users at over 2 million.
Considering that Zynga, a leading social game on Facebook, has a 45 million DAU worldwide, Anipang’s 10 million DAU in Korea is a remarkable performance.
Global smartphone game “Angry Bird” series announced that it had a 30 million DAU worldwide. However, the series is a stand-alone game that is not connected with social networks such as friend relationship and real-time ranking, making it hard to compare it with Anipang.
Anipang’s concurrent users are estimated at around more than 2 million. The 10 million DAU mark for Anipang can be interpreted as every citizen in the metropolitan Seoul area is enjoying the game every day.
