SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/08/13 -- At iKids' annual
iKids Awards last week, ZeptoLab(R), the creators of the hit game
phenomenon Cut the Rope(R), took home the award for Best Web/App
Series for their animation series, "Om Nom Stories." Based on the
star character of Cut the Rope, Om Nom(R), the series brings the
little green monster to life, following his adventures and his
friendship with Evan, the little boy who adopts him.
"With 'Om Nom Stories' we wanted a way to bring Om Nom to life in new
ways and show fans more about who he is and where he comes from,"
said Semyon Voinov, co-founder of ZeptoLab. "When we launched the
series this past fall, we decided on a strategic distribution
strategy that wouldn't rely on any one platform or partner, but would
allow our fans to view the stories whenever and wherever they want;
on mobile, within our games and online. This is a strategy we take
with our games as well as we continue to expand to new platforms.
Being honored by iKids is great validation for us."

theaters across the country as part of an exclusive partnership with
