May 17, 2017 – Jam City, via its game studio TinyCo, FoxNext Games, and Matt Groening today released a new fully-animated teaser trailer for Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, a new game coming soon to mobile devices. Created in partnership with FUTURAMA creator and Executive Producer Matt Groening and his Curiosity Company, along with Executive Producer David X. Cohen, original FUTURAMA writers, and Rough Draft Studios, the teaser is the first new animation from the FUTURAMA universe since the show’s original TV run ended in 2013. Jam City is working with the writers, animators, and cast to produce even more original animation that will have fans waving their tentacles in the air.
“I’m proud to say that Futurama lives! In mobile-video-game teaser trailer form, anyway,” said Matt Groening, creator of FUTURAMA and THE SIMPSONS. “If you squint, it’s kind of like a little episode!”
“Working on this new Futurama animation has been a thrilling adventure,” said David X. Cohen. “I finally understand how Neil Armstrong must have felt when he first landed on the lunar surface, watched some funny cartoons on the control screen, and did whatever else was on his schedule that day.”
Jam City also released more details about gameplay itself. Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow will blend simulation, combat, galactic exploration, and choose-your-own-adventure mechanics together to bring the escapades of the Planet Express crew to life. The game features two main settings: New New York, which focuses on simulation and character progression gameplay, and Space Adventures, in which players will explore and battle their way through planets, nebulas, and other weird stuff across the FUTURAMA universe.
In New New York, players will focus on rescuing characters, collecting special items and materials, expanding their characters’ capabilities by leveling them up and crafting ability-defining character outfits, and tackling story-driven quests. Events that occur in New New York will often move the game’s overarching narrative forward, by allowing players to assemble a crew of their favorite FUTURAMA characters and take to the stars for Space Adventures. While traversing the depths of space, players will fight alien enemies in retro arcade-style combat, rendered in beautiful 16-bit graphics, and explore strange lands in which their choices determine their fate.
“The Futurama universe is chock-full of exotic planets inhabited by wacky creatures (and Smizmars),” said Josh Yguado, Co-Founder, President and COO of Jam City. “Whether you’re counseling an alien overlord on Omicron Persei 8 or battling rogue robots on the streets of Chapek 9, exploring this crazy universe and interacting with its denizens will be a blast.”
Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow is coming soon to mobile devices via the App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore. More information on the game will be released in the near future. For more details on Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow as they are revealed, and to connect with FUTURAMA fans who will help create and play the game, please visit: www.fb.com/playfuturama, www.twitter.com/playfuturama, and www.Jam City.com.
Los Angeles – May 11, 2017 – Spil Games unveils new details of Valerian: City of Alpha, the official mobile game of the upcoming EuropaCorp feature film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, directed by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Lucy) and starring Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad). The game will debut before STXfilms releases the sci-fi epic in theaters in the United States in 2D and 3D beginning July 21. The game will be available on iOS and Android.
Spil Games and EuropaCorp announced their agreement last year but details about the Valerian universe have been kept under wraps, as momentum builds toward release. Now for the first time Spil Games can give an inside look at the game and reveal its title.
With Valerian: City of Alpha, fans will become immersed in the Valerian universe as the game delves into the backstory of the ever-expanding metropolis of Alpha, which hosts thousands of different species from all corners of the universe. Players will create and grow their own space station in this strategic builder simulation game. It will keep players glued to their mobile devices with its riveting visual experience and highly polished and engaging art.
“We are very excited to be working with Spil Games to expand the Valerian universe,” said the film’s producer Virginie Besson-Silla of EuropaCorp. “They are bringing the stunning visual experience of the film from the big screen to mobile and engaging players in a unique and immersive game, while simultaneously offering an exclusive deep dive into the backstory of the world of Valerian.”
“We’re so excited how this game will take movie fans, sci-fi lovers and gamers beyond the film,” added Spil Games’ CEO Tung Nguyen-Khac. “The game’s story explores the Valerian universe 590 years before the film and delves into the backstories of the film’s characters and planets. The game’s mind blowing art, look and feel will keep everyone engaged in the Valerian universe.”
Players will engage in a month-long excursion to repel the Borg by joining weekly in-game events, participate in Borg-themed Gauntlets and engage in limited-time Distress Calls – all with Borg-themed rewards such as assimilated versions of fan-favorite Star Trek characters and the much-requested Borg Queen from Star Trek: First Contact! An all-new Borg Sphere will also work its way into the game as Process of Assimilation progresses in the coming weeks.
The first of four events, Zero Hour, starts on Thursday when Starfleet receives an unexpected visit from former Unimatrix Zero members who confirm the Federation’s worst fears: the Borg are on their way.

With FAMILY GUY: Another Freakin’ Mobile Game, we wanted to take this opportunity to create a mobile game that is much edgier, louder, takes risks and is made for adults.”

(San Francisco, CA) – March 1, 2017 – Mobile gaming publisher flaregames has today – alongside developer Limbic – revealed the May 2017 launch date for Zombie Gunship Survival, the next installment in the #1 top-grossing Zombie Gunship franchise. Coming to both iOS and Android, flaregames and Limbic revealed the mobile shooter game’s anticipated launch date via a NEW TEASER TRAILER, with the team showing off the game’s high-definition visuals and intense scenario-based action at GDC 2017 this week.
In Zombie Gunship Survival, players take the gunner seat aboard a heavily-armed AC-130 aircraft and wage war against zombies. As a survivor of a full-scale zombie apocalypse, players gun down the undead from the skies and protect their ground troops during risky scavenging missions. After securing valuable resources needed for survival, players can upgrade their devastating weaponry and build a remote airfield, which acts both as a shelter for survivors as well as a base for players’ operations.
The second installment in the Zombie Gunship franchise, which received IGN’s “Editors’ Choice Award” in 2011, Zombie Gunship Survival features a user interface that follows first-person shooter (FPS) console game traditions like Call of Duty and Battlefield. Unlike many mobile games, players are fully involved in the action and are therefore in direct control of its outcome. Also, by unlocking new weapons and troops, the way players can approach specific battle scenarios is reinvented each time, leading to freshness of experience and deeper immersion.
“Zombie Gunship was conceived through our love of realistic shooters – set in dark worlds – that are common on PC and console, but not mobile,” said Arash Keshmirian, CEO and co-founder, Limbic. “One particular inspiration was from games like Call of Duty where you are providing fire support from the air — we’ve also drawn a lot from military shooters and simulations. With Zombie Gunship Survival, we’ve made enormous strides in the visuals, arsenal and battle gameplay and can’t wait to globally launch the game in May.”
“Limbic are a gaming publisher’s dream and a world-class development team with the vision to redefine the mobile shooter genre,” said Klaas Kersting, CEO and founder, flaregames. “Zombie Gunship Survival is a sequel millions of gamers have been waiting for, not least the huge fan base of the original game.”
