DNA Interactive to Develop Naked Gun:ICUP for iOS and Android Platforms(August 18, 2011)
LEAMINGTON SPA, United Kingdom, Aug. 18, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DNA Interactive, subsidiary of DNA Dynamics (Pink Sheets:DNAD), have announced an exciting new deal signed with Gamecentric Media to bring the well-known, Paramount comedy, The Naked Gun to iOS and Android platforms, this Fall.
Specialists in social gaming, the Gamecentric Media team have been involved in some of the biggest multi-player titles such as Call of Duty and the Warcraft series. They are using their social gaming expertise to add The Naked Gun:ICUP Facebook game to their already impressive portfolio. Paul Limon, CEO of Gamecentric Media, said, "It's an honor to be able to continue the exploits of Frank Dreben Jr. on mobile platforms with our partners at DNA Dynamics. Together we look forward to providing a completely original Naked Gun adventure, true to the spirit of the franchise, providing a laugh-filled mobile experience that bridges the gap with the social game."
Equally adept in the mobile phone games industry, DNA Interactive will partner the LA Based developer and DNA Studios to bring the Naked Gun franchise to Android and iOS devices. The game will be produced internally, through DNA Studios: a subsidiary of DNA Dynamics. CEO Ed Blincoe comments: "DNA Dynamics is very excited to be involved with the Naked Gun project. Our point and click with a CSI twist adventure game, complete with puzzles, quests and Zucker brother quirk will be unique among existing mobile phone games." He went on further to say, "It will also be a great opportunity to showcase the creativity of both the DNA Studios and DNA interactive teams."
The mobile adventure will tie-in closely with the social networking game, all to be written by Robert LoCash, original series co-writer and producer.
The mobile game is expected to gross $2 million over the lifetime of the product. Going to Market in Q4, DNA Interactive expects to report the revenues in its end of year financial statement.
Previously DNA announced that its match 3 puzzle game ranked 12th in the puzzle category in Apple's App store.
