East Side Games (ESG) has entered into a multi-year publishing and IdleKit partnership agreement with Santa Barbara’s Game Masons for the global release of a mobile game on iOS and Android.
Game Masons is a trailblazer in the mobile esports world and is best known for the Mini Golf Stars game series which has combined for over 35 million downloads,
Leveraging ESG’s IdleKit technology, the new sports-themed game will be developed in-house by Game Masons and is expected to launch in 2022.
“Game Masons is excited to bring its sports expertise to the leaders in the idle genre, East Side Games. Looking to fill a missing piece in the idle space, Game Masons partnership with East Side is guaranteed to not be par for the course!” said Game Masons founder Matthew Fossati.
ESG’s IdleKit is an 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.
ESG is a subsidiary studio of LEAF Mobile (TSX: LEAF). Last week LEAF announced that they were set to launch a non-fungible token (NFT) game creation toolset called NFTKit for its IdleKit platform.
“We are excited to expand into the untapped idle sports genre and we couldn’t have selected a better partner to do this with. Game Masons has developed top-tier mobile sports experiences and they will be leveraging this vast experience as they develop this new game on ESG’s IdleKit platform,” said Darcy Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of LEAF. “This IdleKit agreement with Game Masons is the 6th partnership announced this year and expands our game publishing pipeline for 2022.”
