The Entertainment app reaches a major milestone across all platforms.

Cambridge, MA—Massachusetts game developer Metaversal Studios is thrilled to announce the milestone of five million downloads for the Entertainment app Shave Me!.

Shave Me! may be a departure from the gaming genre but Metaversal Studios could not be more pleased with its widespread success and the support of the creative user community.
