Falling Skies TV tie-in announced for mobile and consoles next year
Developer Little Orbit is bringing the TNT television series Falling Skies to mobile devices and consoles.
The tie-in will launch on mobile by the holidays and follow on consoles in 2014. Steven Spielberg is executive producer on the show, which deals with the aftermath of an extraterrestrial invasion on Earth. The actors will provide voice work for the game.
“Little Orbit’s mission is to identify high-quality licenses and bring their world to gamers in a truly unique and interactive experience,” said Matt Scott, the president of Little Orbit. “We are collaborating closely with the show’s own writers to craft the game’s storyline, wholly integrating the Falling Skies universe into a visceral gaming experience.”
A game of this nature doesn't come as a surprise after Syfy and Trion Worlds pumped money into Defiance, a multimedia crossover that ties its story on TV in with a massively multiplayer online game on PC and consoles.
Falling Skies just finished its third season and has been picked up for a fourth.
