One of the additional games is planned to be based on popular licensed IP, while the remaining two games are in early stage design.

The games are expected to launch during 2022 and 2023 and will be published by East Side Games. Terms of the partnership are subject to confidentiality obligations.

“This expanded partnership with Mighty Kingdom is a testament to the quality and performance of our Game Kit technology that allows for a material decrease in the typical build to launch timeline for mobile games developed on the platform,” said Darcy Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of East Side Games Group. “Having Australia’s largest independent game developer join us for an additional three games speaks volumes about our platform. We couldn’t be more excited to expand our relationship with Mighty Kingdom and can’t wait to see the finished product!”
