Beijing based Happylatte makes a very popular mobile game, called High Noon, on iPhone.  In fact, it is the second most popular iPhone game from China, by revenue.

High Noon is a shooting game, using the cowboy era as background.  Players go to duel with each other, equipped with the many guns, accessories and customs the game provided.  It is very popular in Hong Kong and Singapore.  That is how I found out about them, as one of my Hong Kong friend ask me to check them up.

The game studio developed it, Happylatte, was formed by Bjorn Stabell in 2008.  “We have been doing outsourcing work for mobile phone makers, such as Motorola, for a long time.  When iPhone launched in 2008, it is completely different from the old mobile phone environment and we decided to give it a try with our own game,” said Bjorn.  He also runs an outsourcing firm of 60 people, called Exoweb.
