SAN FRANCISCO- Jan 30, 2013 - Pocket Gems, a leader in mobile games, has partnered with Gogii Games to publish Archie Riverdale Rescue for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Under the agreement, Pocket Gems will leverage its publishing expertise to help with player retention and monetization, as well as launch a major Valentine’s Day update for the game which goes live today as a free download on the App Store.
Archie Riverdale Rescue lets players take control of classic and beloved Archie Comics characters to help rescue the titular town, Riverdale. Players can take the role of Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, or Reggie as they rebuild their hometown by completing fun quests and interesting tasks. In today’s update, players will get Valentine’s Day themed quests, Valentine’s Day clothing packs for their characters, and a new spin-the-bottle feature where they can win XP, cash, or relationship bonuses.
“Riverdale Rescue was an awesome game from the start that Gogii did a fantastic job with,” said Jameel Khalfan, who oversees publishing efforts at Pocket Gems. “By pairing up with them, we were able to bring the game to even more players and lend our support in getting out a major update that will also increase engagement.”
Since establishing its publishing arm in December 2012, Pocket Gems has launched several partner-developed titles across for the App Store and Google Play including the hits Amazing Ants and Chasing Yello, both of which generated more than 2 million downloads in less than two weeks after launching. Pocket Gems also teamed with the National Football League last September to publish NFL Runner: Football Dash.
“Partnering with Pocket Gems is going to get our game into so many more hands, and the choice to partner with them was an alignment of philosophies which power today’s free-to-play market,” said George Donovan, founder of Gogii Games. “Now, Archie will have all the help he needs choosing between Veronica and Betty.”
“Pocket Gems and Gogii Games have helped to bring one of longest-running brands in the history of comics to a whole new type of audience with this game,” said Jon Goldwater, Publisher and co-CEO of Archie Comic Publications. “We’re very happy with how Archie Riverdale Rescue gives people a unique new way to interact with these classic characters.”
