Apptigo International Expands Portfolio of Social Games & Mobile Apps With Acquisition of Four 6K Games(August 07, 2014)
MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 08/07/14 -- Apptigo International, Inc. (OTCBB: APPG) (OTCQB: APPG), a non-conforming, highly creative agency and mobile app developer, today announced that it has acquired four social game concepts and related intellectual properties from 6K Games, a digital media company specializing in the design, development and commercialization of single and multiplayer social Facebook games that connect and entertain people through fun, fresh and competitive gameplay.
The game concepts acquired by Apptigo in the transaction include "Prehistorik Olympics," "Newton's Apple," "Social Trivia Chat" and "Social World" -- the first three are currently available in beta gameplay on Facebook and the fourth, Social World, is in the advanced development stage. Apptigo intends to apply its wildly creative vision and technological powers to each of the game concepts to fully capitalize on 6K's animation, graphics and proprietary built-in features. As a result, the Company expects to transform the concepts from really cool games into jaw-dropping, head-turning, totally addictive interactive entertainment adapted to both online and mobile gaming platforms.
"We are thrilled to welcome 6K Games' engaging social gaming concepts to the Apptigo family and believe they represent ideal concepts for cross-platform development and delivery as social gaming apps on both iOS and Android mobile devices," stated David Steinberg, Co-Founder, President and Chief Creative Officer at Apptigo. "All of 6K's original concepts feature their own instant messaging systems and clever, animated emoticons, creating highly engaging, interactive gameplay aimed at both veteran and casual gamers who crave skill, fun and strategy. They are great complements to Apptigo's growing portfolio of online and mobile apps and, once we have completed 'Apptigo-izing' them, should prove to be popular with social and casual gamers of all sizes, IQs and ages."
Pursuant to the terms of the Intellectual Property Purchase Agreement, Apptigo acquired all rights, title and interest to four 6K Games' and related IP in a stock-only transaction. For further details regarding the terms and conditions of the acquisition, please refer to the related Form 8-K to be filed with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission in connection with this asset acquisition.
