The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman's company Skybound has partnered up with entertainment provider Sky to form a mobile narrative gaming venture.
Called Skybound Stories, it will focus on using both new and existing IP to create mobile narrative gaming experiences.
More specifically, it’ll seek to use IP from Sky’s forthcoming original productions across Europe. The entertainment providers current slate of TV shows include Britannia, Babylon Berlin and Gomorrah.
Games will revolve around episodic and character-driven narratives where the player becomes the protagonist and makes choices that matter to the storyline.
The sky is the limit
“I am very excited about this venture. This is comic books for the iPhone generation,” said Sky managing director of content Gary Davey.
“Interactive story-telling, designed for mobile consumption is a fascinating new field for us.
“And it’s great to now explore it with the masters of the craft.”
Skybound president Dan Murray added: “A constant goal at Skybound is to deliver new and existing fans with the best content possible.
“Our deal with Sky allows us to dive deeper into already cherished worlds in a creative way, inviting players to become a part of the story.”
