We have partnered with South Korean game developer Flexball Inc. to bring the characters of “Saari” to a game on Android and iOS devices.
“Saari Tales” is an immersive digital storybook with narrative-oriented puzzles featuring new episodes coming up every month.
“We are very happy with this collaboration. Flexball is the perfect partner for us given their experience and position the Asian game market. We share a vision about innovating and breaking barriers in kid’s content. The co-production model is very common in other media like Animation, but it is still unusual in video games.”-Commented Pablo Jordi, Pikkukala’s CEO – “Saari was the first animated series we ever made and it is very special for us and we are excited to see the results.”
“I fell in love with characters and music of Saari animation when I first saw it. I was more than happy to hear Pablo wanted to work together with us for a meaningful and fun project like this. I hope there will be more cross-cultural collaborative projects like this in the future.” Said Henry Park, Flexball’s CEO.
The global release of the game with the first episode is planned for the first quarter of 2016.
Saari is an animation series created by Veronica Lassenius and produced by Stor Fisk, Televsió de Catalunya e Imira Entertainment.
