Gigantosaurus Video Game Coming Soon
Cyber Group Studios and Outright Games have announced a major partnership to create the first video game inspired by Gigantosaurus, which is a new animated television series that is currently airing on the Disney Channel in the US. The new video game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Based on the bestselling book by world-renowned author Jonny Duddle, Gigantosaurus, the full-CGI comedy-action series produced by Cyber Group Studios, brings preschoolers along on the adventures of four young dinosaur friends as they explore their prehistoric world and the mystery of Gigantosaurus, the biggest, fiercest dinosaur of them all.
The new series that roared to life on Disney Channel US will be broadcast on Disney Junior worldwide (excluding India, China and Taiwan). Gigantosaurus is also set to premiere on major broadcast networks, including France Télévisions, Germany’s Super RTL, RAI (Italy), SRC (Canada), as well as on Netflix in the majority of territories worldwide.
The Gigantosaurus video game, created by Outright Games in partnership with Cyber Group Studios, will feature the four dinosaur heroes, Rocky, Bill, Tiny and Mazu, in a new action-packed story. Geared towards kids and families, the debut game brings players directly into the world of Gigantosaurus, as they zoom through the stunning series-inspired locations and engage with the storylines.
Established by industry veteran Terry Malham in 2016, Outright Games brings a wealth of experience in creating and publishing high-quality interactive family entertainment, including with licenses such as How to Train Your Dragon, Paw Patrol and Adventure Time.
Terry Malham, CEO of Outright Games, says, “We are thrilled to partner with Cyber Group Studios on this exciting new IP. Their commitment to producing stories that delight and help children across the world grow is second to none. We look forward to combining our expertise in producing high-quality family entertainment to create a fun game for the whole family to enjoy and play together.”
Pierre Sissmann, Chairman and CEO of Cyber Group Studios, adds, “Cyber Group Studios is excited to build on the television series and expand the franchise to video games with Outright Games. With their considerable expertise in the family market, we know they will deliver a game that will bring Gigantosaurus to life in a whole new way and further captivate fans around the globe.”
My Take: It’s great to see some new children’s video games going into production, there is a space in the market for these types of games since children are much more used to playing games due to the use of tablets and smartphones, but those devices can’t often offer as good an experience as a console title does. If it’s priced accordingly and has a simple gaming loop to keep kids entertained, it could be fun.
