Commenting on the Android launch, CEO and founder of Mind Candy, Michael Acton Smith said: “We’re very excited that Android users will now be able to join iOS users as they create their very own Moshi Villages. When we were developing Moshi Monsters Village, we wanted to create a game that sparked people’s imaginations and hopefully we have accomplished this. We’ve also recently launched racing app Moshi Karts™, and can’t wait to introduce more in the coming months as we continue to develop our mobile offering.”
