I learned today that "Riverdale Rescue" is branching out... into China!:
Gogii Games, a leading independent game studio, has partnered with Vancouver-based Imagin8sian and Archie Comics, the acclaimed and bestselling comic book publisher that is home to some of the best-known pop culture creations, to adapt and release the mobile game Archie: Riverdale Rescue to Chinese players. Under the agreement, Imagin8sian will leverage their experience with game design and performance in the Chinese market to optimize the game for the market in Mainland China.Chinese players can now download "Riverdale Rescue" from iTunes and will be able to download it for their Android devices next month.
Archie: Riverdale Rescue lets players take control of classic and beloved Archie Comics characters to help rescue the titular town, Riverdale. Players can take the role of Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, or Reggie as they rebuild their hometown by completing fun quests and interesting tasks.
“Gogii Games and Imagin8sian have helped to bring one of longest-running and vibrant brands in the history of comics to a whole new audience with this game,” said Jon Goldwater, Publisher and CEO of Archie Comics. “We’re thrilled with the way that the Chinese market has embraced the Archie gang, and we’re excited to give the audience a whole new way to interact with these wonderful characters.”
