(CSE: VS) (OTCQB: VRSSF) (FSE: BMVA) (“Versus”) today announced a partnership with BTC Studios (WSE: BTC) (“BTC”), a European games developer and publisher focused on family-friendly mobile games, to bring Versus’ proprietary in-app rewards technology to BTC’s free-to-play and family-friendly puzzle game, “Taffy: Feed The Kitty“.
“Taffy: Feed The Kitty” is based on Cyber Group Studios’ slapstick animated comedy series “Taffy” which airs on WarnerMedia’s Boomerang International. The game launched globally on October 20, 2020.1
Rewards offerings are planned to start in the US and Canada in Q1 2021 with additional countries to follow in Q2 and Q3 2021.
