The Philippines is undoubtedly an EverWing nation, with more than 7 million Facebook users in the country regularly playing the hit online game so far.
In recognition of Filipinos’ passion for EverWing, its developer, Blackstorm Labs, has created five new characters that are all inspired by popular Philippine mythical creatures. This is the first time for the US-based game creator to introduce characters that can be identified with any country.
The new set of characters are all dragons that can possibly hatch, level up, or even evolve. EverWing players in the Philippines and around the world started encountering the new mythical creatures in the game on July 19, coinciding with the Philippine Dragon Festival that was organized by a local telecom firm.
“This lineup of Philippine dragons is our treat to millions of Filipinos, who are among our most engaged and passionate players in the world,” said Blackstorm CEO Michael Carter. “With their distinct characteristics, these Filipino dragons will surely take your game to the next level, so we hope the entire world will enjoy this update.”
