MumboJumbo to Bring New Crazy Chicken Titles to North America
Deal with phenomedia includes three new titles for Nintendo DS
MumboJumbo, a leading developer and publisher of casual games, has entered into a publishing agreement with phenomedia publishing gmbh to bring their latest Moorhuhn titles to Nintendo DS™ system in the North American market.
The three-title deal includes Star Karts, Atlantis Quest and The Pharaoh's Treasure, all of which will launch in 2009 for the popular handheld gaming console at retail prices of $19.99 each.
"We're very excited to bring these three Crazy Chicken games to the North American audience," said Mark Cottam, CEO of MumboJumbo. "The strong character, variety of game play and overall production values of these titles make them a perfect fit for MumboJumbo."
Developed by phenomedia, Star Karts follows the zany Crazy Chicken through an intergalactic racing competition, while Atlantis Quest is a side-scrolling action (or platformer) game that takes Crazy Chicken through 30 levels of challenges both above and below the sea. In The Pharaoh's Challenge, players can try their hand at puzzle-solving in the Egyptian-themed adventure.
"We would like to tie Moorhuhn's latest three adventures on Nintendo DS to international success of Moorhuhn DS. Each of these games represents a different genre - racing game, Jump & Run and puzzle - and thus not only emphasizes the platform's diversity, but also that of the strong character Moorhuhn itself," said Helge Borgarts, phenomedia publishing gmbh's CEO.
Crazy Chicken originally launched in Germany as Moorhuhn X and quickly developed a league of fans who found the zany and precocious chickens entertaining and comical. Bringing the mischief and mayhem to Nintendo DS will serve to broaden the game's already impressive audience.
