Vancouver’s East Side Games (ESG) has entered into a publishing and IdleKit partnership agreement with Argentina’s Bigfoot Gaming for the global release of a mobile game on iOS and Android.
This is the first collaboration between Bigfoot and ESG and will involve a single game multi-year publishing and IdleKit agreement between the two companies.
The game, based on a well-known and beloved IP franchise, will be developed in-house by Bigfoot and is expected to launch in 2022.
IdleKit is ESG’s core software technology. This internally developed proprietary game framework for building narrative driven idle games allows for a material decrease in the typical build to launch timeline for mobile games developed on the platform. This platform is not only utilized by ESG, but is also open to third party developers on a partnership basis.
“This IdleKit agreement with Bigfoot expands our studio partnerships into new geographies, and raises awareness of the IdleKit platform in South America,” said Darcy Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of LEAF. “We’re looking forward to being able to share our IP partner for this project in the future, and we’re excited with the continued momentum of ESG’s IdleKit technology platform.”
Bigfoot Gaming was founded in 2014 by Jojo Batista and Gaston Claret. Among their popular game titles are Whack Wars, Harvest Frenzy, and Fist of Furry.
