“To me, the story of Habbo has always been a story about the Community” said Ignatius. “Our company’s strength and success derives from the strength and success of our Community. In the coming year we continue listening to our Community and learning from the Community. We will keep on both providing our users with the classic Habbo features so loved by our Community as well as continue developing new extensions to the Habbo experience, such as the recently launched Game Center and mobile application.” Ignatius stated.""
