Big Viking partners with indie comic publisher Valiant Entertainment on five-year HTML5 game deal

HTML5 developer Big Viking Games has partnered with comic book publisher Valiant Entertainment for a five-year mobile game deal.

Big Viking will develop HTML5 games using Valiant's back catalogue of comics including X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Harbinger, Shadowman and Archer & Armstrong.

The games will be multi-platform, largely targeting messenger apps and social networks for publishing. This includes Facebook's recently-launched Instant Games platform.

New and exciting platforms

"It's an honour to partner with Valiant and bring their incredibly rich and deep catalogue of characters and stories to new and exciting platforms on mobile," said Albert Lai, CEO and Co-founder of Big Viking Games.

"Valiant and Big Viking share a very similar core ideology, which is to 'make fans,' and I believe this partnership will make millions of new fans for both companies."

Big Viking most recently established a $10 million fund for developing and publishing HTML5 games to messengers. It is currently looking to raise $60 million as it pushes on with the future of HTML5 titles.
