"Ancient Aliens: The Game," a free-to-play video game that already enjoys over one million installs on Android mobile devices alone, has a new official operator: Liquid Media Group Ltd. (YVR:NASDAQ).
In an April 11 press release, the Vancouver-based media and entertainment company explained that "Ancient Aliens: The Game," is a story-driven video game owned by digital media group A+E Networks and based on the hit television series broadcasting on A+E's History Channel and across more than 200 territories worldwide.
The video game can be played for free across iOS, Google Play and Facebook platforms. It earns revenue through in-app purchases that advance game play. Besides of its many installations on a wide range of platforms and devices, the game enjoys a combined social footprint of over 2.5 million Facebook fans, Twitter followers and e-mail subscribers, noted Liquid Media, a company that produces content for various platforms, including film, TV, gaming and virtual reality (VR).
The new operator of "Ancient Aliens: The Game" also explained that "the game's original storywriter, bestselling science fiction author and award-winning game writer, Steven-Elliot Altman, will continue to pen the game's story."
"A+E has been on the forefront of translating story-rich intellectual property across media platforms, developing engaging content that is platform agnostic—all of which is central to Liquid's strategy," said Joshua Jackson, chairman of Liquid Media.
"Succeeding on major network television for over 13 seasons is a proud testament to the tremendous blood, sweat and tears that the teams at both A+E Networks and Prometheus Entertainment have invested to ensure Ancient Aliens are constantly evolving, both on television and across other mediums, to leverage its media franchise potential. A+E recognizes the convergence happening in the media, the value of being on the forefront of mobile and the significance of taking intellectual property across all platforms," Jackson added.[NLINSERT]
