“The President” was a product of CrazyLabs’ first South African Crazy Hub Initiative which was held in Cape Town back in May, and was created by the company’s VP of Publishing & Business Development, Omri Henkin.

Speaking about the achievement was the Founder and CEO of Maken Games, Evans Kiragu, who praised the team behind the game for the effort they put in to make it a reality.

“I am beyond words on this one – to see our latest game at the top of the charts! But I have to appreciate the massive effort that has gone into this so far.”

“Thanks to CrazyLabs our publisher and the amazing team Vamil Doshi Alper Ayduman Nir Miretzky Hila Chechik Shai Sasson Omri Henkin and many others who have been a part of this game from ideation, likewise the team at Carry1st Lucy Hoffman Cordel Robbin-Coker Takunda Andrew Mudyiwa Hannah Kasaby just to mention a few.
