Hyper Hippo Productions is a Canadian online video game and software development company. It was co-founded by Club Penguin founder Lance Priebe[1] and Pascale Audette, a former employee of Disney Online Studios Canada. Their current most popular games include AdVenture Capitalist, Wild Warfare, and Mech Mice, among many others.

History[edit]

Hyper Hippo was founded by Lance Priebe and Pascale Audette in late 2012. Its original purpose was to expand the size of Priebe's old studio, RocketSnail Games, which is today used as a personal studio for independent projects by Priebe. Hyper Hippo formally inherited all of RocketSnail's projects, including Mech Mice and Leviathans Online.

In November 2012, Catalyst Game Labs announced a partnership with Hyper Hippo to create Leviathans Online.[2] Later, in December 2012, Wired's GeekDad also reported about Catalyst Games and Hyper Hippo Games possibly partnering.[3]
