Ape Entertainment to Develop Comic Series Based on Squids Mobile Games
Ape Entertainment and independent video game developer The Game Bakers are announcing a new licensing agreement to create a series of original digital comic books and graphic novels based on The Game Bakers’ chart-topping game series, Squids. Available for iOS, Android, PC, and Mac, the Squids games have been downloaded by more than one million players worldwide.
Squids and its recent sequel, Squids Wild West, are role-playing games with quirky characters, colorful cartoon graphics, and humorous storylines. A mysterious black ooze is encroaching on the Squids’ lush underwater kingdom, prompting a scrappy group of Squid heroes to fight back the only way they know how: by stretching their tentacles to spring into battle. Both Squids games have been praised by fans for their vibrant artwork and lighthearted yet surprisingly epic plotlines—elements that will transition perfectly into Ape’s new comic series, which will explore the backstories of scout Steev, healer Vahine, and the rest of the Squids crew.
Ape Entertainment plans to release the full-color comic book series in print as well as through a standalone Squids Comics app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch in the coming months.
