Vancouver’s East Side Games (ESG) has announced their 5th partnership, adding three new titles to their 2022 roster.
TinyRex Games is a mobile games studio founded by Kenny Huang, Haig Sakouyan, Tim Harris and Ernest Chan. The eccentric indie game studio recently raised an oversubscribed $1.5 million seed round.
All three games will be developed in-house by TinyRex, leveraging ESG’s proven IdleKit technology, and will be published by ESG. The first game will be based on The Wizard of Oz and is expected to launch world-wide in 2022 with the remaining games to follow shortly thereafter.
“This IdleKit agreement with TinyRex is the 5th partnership announced this year and expands our game publishing pipeline with the addition of 3 new titles for 2022,” said Darcy Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of LEAF. “TinyRex’s leadership brings rich industry experience as independent game developers to this partnership and we’re excited to see their fresh take on the timeless story of Wizard of Oz as their first game on the IdleKit platform.”
TinyRex co-founder Kenny Huang says: “Wizard of Oz is a beloved tale as old as time, or at least 120 years old according to our lawyer. We plan to bring a whimsical, enchanted, idle-genre bending game to Wizard of Oz fans that will take them down the yellow brick road into the magical land of Oz.”
