Frima Studio and Moonscoop have announced a new partnership for the production of an animated children’s TV series based on Squids, the hit mobile game from The Game Bakers. The show will follow the exploits of four springy octopus adventurers as they travel between themed underwater kingdoms to hold the evil Baron and his infection at bay!
“Ambitious projects like Squids allow us to showcase the talent of Frima’s artists and animators,” said Steve Couture, CEO of Frima Studio. “As an experienced mobile game developer ourselves, we’re well positioned to create a show worthy of this popular title with the world-renowned team at Moonscoop.”
Released in October 2011 for iOS devices, Squids is a turn-based action RPG with over 1.5m players across iOS and Android. Squids and its sequel Squids Wild West feature a cast of memorable sea creatures and have been praised by gaming critics for their innovative gameplay and charming visual style.
“With Squids among the first titles created for mobile gaming and now heading towards television and other screens, we’re pleased to offer a cutting edge transmedia experience for our fans,” said Audrey Leprince of The Game Bakers. “We’re confident that the Squids brand will shine on TV thanks to the highly capable teams at Frima and Moonscoop.”
“With a wide range of expertise among the partners, the Squids’ content has the potential to reach consumers on screens of all sizes,” said Christophe Di Sabatino, CEO of Moonscoop. “We are eager to develop one of the first brands linking original content from mobile to television.”
