Two UK-based game developers have partnered to launch a popular Facebook game on mobile devices. PlayDemand’s Bubble Raider game has more than 250,000 followers on the social network, and has been available to play for four years. The developer has teamed up with publisher Boomdash Digital to bring the game to Android and iOS devices in the near future.
Both companies are located in the Manchester area, and particular emphasis was placed on building more local relationships, and encouraging local talent.
Noel Boland, Playdemand’s CEO, said:
“We saw how the synergy of Boomdash’s publishing expertise, and our highly popular Bubble Raider game would work well as a collaboration for both of us, and this would also be a great example of boosting the Northern Powerhouse in action.”
The Bubble Raider mobile game is currently in development, and will bring the same style of gameplay to smartphones and tablets, for both Android and iOS operating systems. The game is expected to launch in September through Google Play, Amazon’s Appstore, and the iTunes App Store.
