When an iOS game has over 1.6 million unique users every single day, it is pretty safe to say that it might be successful. One of the very few apps that can boast that kind of statistic would be the run away success Cut The Rope. Just trying to wrap my brain around the absurdity of that many players in a single day is nigh impossible, so I don't even bother trying to comprehend the game's total download count of over 60 million across the iOS and Android platforms.
So with that many people being invested in the plight of poor little Om Nom, you might have wondered where the little critter came from, what exactly it is, and how it came to love sugary treats. ZeptoLab decided that the best way to answer this and many more questions was to launch a new comic, explaining his entire origin story. The series' companion app just launched yesterday on the App Store, with a completely free first issue.
If the first story strikes your fancy, the rest of the episodes will be available for two dollars. There will also be a full print run of the comic coming next year, so there is a little bit of something for everyone. Give the first issue a read and let us know if you like it in the comments.
