Mobile and social game developer Game Insight is the latest to join the growing group of developers making a move to developing for Korea’s KakaoTalk mobile messaging platform. Game Insight’s 2020: My Country will come to the KakaoTalk platform, which recently passed over 100 million registered users.
2020: My Country is the developer’s sequel to the original My Country. The game was originally on iOS and Android earlier this year, and asks players to build a futuristic city complete with customizable buildings, disaster events, quests and more.
“Game Insight is thrilled to join Kakao as part of this new venture,” said Darya Trushkina, Game Insight VP Business Development, via a company release. “Of course, while we release all our mobile titles on major application stores, we’re always searching for new partners, new channels, and new audiences with whom to share our games. South Korea’s dedicated base of smart, savvy players represents an extremely important audience for Game Insight, which is why we’re so excited about debuting on the Kakao game platform with one of our newest and most highly polished mobile game titles to date, 2020: My Country for Kakao.”
Game Insight joins the likes King and Outplay Entertainment, both of which have released older games on the KakaoTalk platform. Outplay’s Bubble Blaze came to KakaoTalk in early September, while King’s Candy Crush Saga came to the platform just weeks later. More developers are expected to join the KakaoTalk game platform in the coming weeks and months.
