TransGaming, Inc. is proud to announce that its in-house game development studio, creators of In The Mix Featuring Armin van Buuren for the Nintendo Wii ™, is now in the final stages of development on its latest title – Garage Inc.
As we told you last week, Garage Inc. is an original title, developed from inception as a multi-platform game, and targets the rapidly growing casual gaming segment. Garage Inc. is slated to be released before the end of the year on PC, Mac, iPhone as well as on TransGaming’s new GameTreeTV digital home platform.
“The casual games segment is one of the fastest growing markets in electronic entertainment and we are incredibly excited to be creating original intellectual property for it,” commented Wojtek Kawczynski, Managing Director of TransGaming Studios. “Garage Inc. was designed from the outset to leverage TransGaming’s enablement technology and expertise to reach the broadest possible audience across multiple platforms at a streamlined cost, including gamers on our new GameTreeTV Platform.”
Garage Inc. is an innovative time management game that takes place in Prohibition-era Chicago, and features a rich cast of memorable characters. The story centers around Angelo Marito, a car mechanic and recent Italian immigrant who is trying to make a life for himself in the windy city. Players help Angelo fulfill his dream of opening his own car garage, but must navigate many challenges and plot twists as the local Mob gets involved. The casual nature of the game allows players to jump in and play in “bite-sized pieces”, which is ideal for mobile or smart-television experiences.
Garage Inc. is being developed by TransGaming Studios in partnership with Breakthrough Entertainment and is based on an original concept from GlobalFun. The iPhone version is made possible with the support of the Ontario Media Development Corporation.
“We are very proud of the work that TransGaming has done with the Garage Inc. property and are confident that it will perform well on all platforms”, said Dorothy Vreeker, Director, Digital Media at Breakthrough Entertainment.
Garage Inc. is being introduced to gamers worldwide through an innovative social media campaign on Twitter, where Angelo provides real-time updates of his journey from Europe, speaking of his new experiences as he settles in Chicago, 1928. The Twitter campaign can be found at @GarageIncGame and @AngeloMarito.
