That's it? 2021, are we finally closing it?
We thought we had seen the worst of 2020, but Mother Nature had not said her last word. A lot of things happened in 2021, some more positive than others, but overall we're glad it's over. Between Covid and the floods, the Euro, the Olympics and vaccination, the arrival of Biden, the departure of Merkel, and, in the four corners of the world, all the protests, we have also experienced a lot this year.
Let's just say that 2021 is like being between a rock and a hard place all year round: it opens, closes, reopens, closes again, you never know which way to go! You can vaccinate, you can be tested, you can go out but only with the CST... Fortunately, to motivate us, we could count on the return of Stromae, Adele or the release of Britney.
As in 2020, we invite you to take a look at what Coddy has been up to in 2021 and the changes that have taken place in our little start-up.
Getting the year off to a flying start
A rather productive year indeed as no less than 71 new games were added to our catalogue in 2021! At the beginning of the year, we added 30 new cities in which our Rise of the Dead and Alchemist scenarios have, for the most part, been deployed and customized.
This year, two new scenarios were also added: The Walter Affair and Red Nights, our Halloween event game.
Most of the added cities are in France, but in 2021 we also deployed our games in Lisbon, Portugal and Lausanne, Switzerland!
Halloween, here we go again
A Halloween event that can finally take place: in 2020, we had to cancel our Halloween event because of the pandemic after weeks of organisation and work. Fortunately, this year we were able to go ahead with it and it was a success: after only a few days we were sold out for this event! And despite the rain, many people braved the obstacles during these Red Nights!
Ending the year on a high note
In 2021, we also undertook a fundraising campaign and we are proud to announce that 600,000 euros were raised! It is thanks to about 90 people who have followed and supported us that this year ends on a high note for us. Thanks to this fundraising, we can clearly see the future of Coddy and plan many projects for 2022!
Objectives for 2022
Next year, our team will grow: we want to recruit new talent to develop Coddy and to allow us to expand abroad. Indeed, our ambition is to create new games and to import our existing games in Spain and Italy. The fundraising will also allow us to improve the mobile application and develop new features.
By the way, if you're interested in working at Coddy, don't hesitate to check the job offers and apply to join us (offers online from January 1st)!
So it is on a positive note that we end our article and the year 2021. We hope to see many of you in 2022 in new cities, for new games, new explorations and new unforgettable urban adventures!
Thank you all for playing with us!
