DistinctDev, Creators of‘The Moron Test’, Head West

Top-Ranking iOS game company sets up shop in Seattle


Seattle, WA -- April 25th, 2011 -- DistinctDev, Inc., the Florida-based developers?behind one of the top selling mobile games of all time, The Moron Test, today?announced they are relocating their studio headquarters to Seattle, Washington.?The announcement comes days after the two-year anniversary of the game's?launch.

"The choice to relocate to Seattle was an easy one for us,” explained DistinctDev?CEO Berkeley Malagon.“We considered San Francisco, but if you’re a small?gaming startup looking to grow your team, you just can’t beat Seattle’s blend?of a world-class gaming talent pool, affordable office spaces, and amazing tax?structure.”

"Seattle has a long history of successful game companies, both big and?small,” says Grant Goodale, long-time Seattle resident and CEO of Massively?Fun, the games studio behind the massively-multiplayer online word game? wordsquared.com.“Indie game companies here benefit from the wealth of?experience in the community. Nowhere else can small game companies get this?much access to decades' worth of knowledge and expertise."

DistinctDev’s relocation is the first step in a plan to grow the three-person?shop and explore new play and monetization mechanics for The Moron Test.?The game has been downloaded over 14 million times across all of the major?smartphone platforms, and versions for iPads, Macs, PCs, and netbooks are?coming soon.

“The three of us have been able to accomplish quite a bit, but we see that it’s?time to find great people to join the DistinctDev family,” adds Berkeley.“We’re?confident our move to Seattle will give us access to the cream of the gaming?crop.”

In the short term, DistinctDev looks to fill positions in game design and game art.?Interested candidates should email info@distinctdev.com for more information.
