16-year-old Brandon Kynoch’s mobile game, ‘Torus.’ was downloaded 100 000 times during its first 24 hours on the App Store and chosen as ‘Game of the Day’ in 137 countries.
Torus. is the first South African game to achieve such broad, global App Store coverage. Uploaded to the App Store in April 2018, Torus. achieved (based on downloads) the number one spot in Free Action Games‚ number two in Free Arcade Games and number five in All Free Games on the store. The App Store’s blurb says it well: “Torus. gracefully embodies so many things that we love about mobile games – intuitive sleek game play, clear objective and beautiful minimalistic design. And if that isn’t enough, a zen state of mind is guaranteed after a few play sessions.” This is evidenced by the high number of 5-star reviews the game has received since hitting the international audience.
