Spacetime Studios’ two mobile MMOs, Pocket Legends and Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles, have been played over 100 million times. That’s right, two mobile MMOs have been played over 100 million times. And you said it couldn’t be done. Did you say that? Might have been someone else…

In even more good news for them, playtime for the two games is double the hours compared to other mobile games based on a Nielson study.

If you wanted even more MMO goodness, a third title named Dark Legends, is to be released by Spacetime Studios in Q1 this year.

Spacetime’s Legends Mobile MMO Franchise Surpasses 100 Million Play Sessions


AUSTIN, Texas – Spacetime Studios

 mobile MMOs Pocket Legends

 and Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles

 have been played more than 100 million times. Spacetime players spend about twice the number of hours playing Legends titles than the average gamer spends across all mobile games each month.



Users with iPhones play games for 14.7 hours per month while Android users play around 9.3 hours per month according to Nielsen research

. The average Spacetime player spends 25.2 hours per month playing Legends titles alone.



Since the inception of Spacetime Studios, the primary focus has been to bring the immersive MMO experience traditionally found on the PC to the mobile world in meaningful, bite-sized play sessions.


“MMO games by their nature are more engaging and involved than most genres, but making that work in the mobile world is very delicate balancing act,” said Cinco Barnes, Chief Vision Officer and co-founder, Spacetime Studios. “With each launch of a Legendstitle we make it our mission to innovate and it has become the largest, most successful mobile MMO franchise in the world.”


Spacetime Studios has continually expanded the Legends franchise since the advent of Pocket Legends and its rich fantasy world in 2010. The second title and sci-fi adventure, Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles was made commercially available in 2011. The third entry in the franchise, vampire-themed Dark Legends

, will be released in the first quarter of 2012.
