Jam City launches “Homescapes” challenger “Vineyard Valley” on iOS today. Homescapes is one of the most played puzzle game of 2019 with around 2 million downloads in January and a revenue of around 11 million dollars for the month. Jam City is trying to replicate their success by building its own version of Homescapes titled as “Vineyard Valley“.
We will have to wait and watch to find out if they succeed in achieving the same level of success that Homescapes commands when it comes to idle puzzle games. Jam City is a Los Angeles-based mobile game developer. The company was founded in 2010 by MySpace co-founders Chris DeWolfe, Colin Digiaro, Aber Whitcomb and former 20th Century Fox executive Josh Yguado. They are behind one of the most popular puzzle games of 2018 titled “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery“.
