Mighty Kingdom partners with East Side Games for “popular legacy sci-fi franchise” game

What could it be?

Aussie dev Mighty Kingdom has partnered with East Side Games for a mobile title revolving around a “popular legacy sci-fi franchise”.

The two-year co-development deal will span four games total, distributed around original IP and existing licenses.

“Our work with ESG has been fantastic thus far, and we’re excited to strengthen our relationship,” Mighty Kingdom’s Philip Mayes said in a press release. “Between our combined pools of creativity, experience and technology, we know that with ESG, we’ll deliver rich experiences to players for years to come – both original stories, and well-known universes.”

“This expanded partnership with Mighty Kingdom is a testament to the quality and performance of our Game Kit technology that allows for a material decrease in the typical build to launch timeline for mobile games developed on the platform,” added East Side Games’ Darcy Taylor. “Having Australia’s largest independent game developer join us for an additional three games speaks volumes about our platform. We couldn’t be more excited to expand our relationship with Mighty Kingdom and can’t wait to see the finished product!”

East Side Games’ aforementioned IdleKit tech has lead to the creation of mobile titles including Archer Danger Phone and It’s Always Sunny The Gang Goes Mobile. As for what the pair will use it to create is anyone’s guess at this point, but we’re thinking of popular sci-fi franchises like Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica and Lost in Space. What do you reckon we might see from this union?
