Network Partners with PikPok and Grumpyface Studios to Create Unique Mobile Games
15 September 2011
Adult Swim Digital announced today the launch of a new series of mobile games exclusive to the iOS platform. Part of a new initiative to further their partnerships with leading and independent game developers, Monsters Ate My Condo by PikPok is the first of five exclusive iOS games that will launch in the iTunes store in 2011, with more planned in 2012.
“Our goal is to make great games and make sure they find an audience,” said Jeff Olsen, vice-president of Adult Swim digital and games. “Working with PikPok and Grumpyface, we know we’re going to get really high-quality, original work. So we can really invest in development and promotion.”
Monsters Ate My Condo is the first game in a multi-title deal between Adult Swim and PikPok which extends into 2012. The game is a fast-paced action puzzle game that reflects the anime style reminiscent of Asian pop-culture and monster movies and is now available for download in the iTunes Store for 99 cents.
“Partnering with Adult Swim for multiple titles is a great opportunity for us both commercially and creatively”, said Mario Wynands, Managing Director of PikPok. “Working with their team and being able to access their extensive audience allows us to create a high quality range of diverse and interesting content.”
In Monsters Ate My Condo, four ferocious monsters of destruction are on a rampage and only residential high-rises will satisfy their boundless hunger. In this larger-than-life puzzle game, the player will use intuitive swipe controls to match the colored floors. Feed the creatures and prevent the destruction of all humankind! The game features both Endless and Time Attack modes, as well as Open Feint and GameCenter support for leaderboards and achievements. The Universal app works on all iOS devices.
The next exclusive iOS game from Adult Swim will be Bring Me Sandwiches!!, developed in partnership with indie developer Grumpyface Studios. The game will be available in the iTunes store later this month.
“Teaming up with Adult Swim was a great fit for us, and allowed for a nice creative freedom you don’t always expect when working with a publisher. No idea ever felt too out-there to explore, and in fact the wackiest concepts were always the most encouraged – which is a refreshing way to work,” said Chris Graham, President and Creative Director at Grumpyface Studios.
In Bring Me Sandwiches!! the world finds itself at the mercy of a ruthless alien invader with only one weakness: his love for sandwiches! In this unique puzzle-platform hybrid players take control of timid fast food worker Jimmy Nugget, who unexpectedly encounters the hungry alien while taking out the trash. Jimmy must satisfy the invader’s immense interstellar appetite by traversing across obstacle-filled environments and making sandwiches from anything within reach, including garbage, appliances, and even pedestrians! Along the way Jimmy will be on the look-out for special menu requests that take the form of scavenger hunts, and even alien technology that can power up his sandwiches! Featuring over two dozen challenging stages, customizable tilt and digital button control options, and completely crazy-unique gameplay.
