Frima, Moonscoop to produce animated TV series based on mobile game Squids

Canadian independent game developer Frima and entertainment company Moonscoop today announced a partnership for the production of an animated kids show based on the mobile game Squids from developer The Game Bakers.

“With Squids among the first titles created for mobile gaming and now heading towards television and other screens, we’re pleased to offer a cutting edge transmedia experience for our fans,” said Audrey Leprince of The Game Bakers, in a statement.

The show’s premise will be based around the adventures of four octopus characters who travel from one underwater kingdom to another in an effort to stop the evil Baron’s infection.

The Game Bakers, a French game studio, first released Squids in October 2011 for iOS, and have acquired more than 1.5 million players across iOS and Android.

Quebec, Canada-based game studio Frima, who also provide animation and special effects services with its Frima FX service, is known for its mobile games including Nun Attack, A Space Shooter for Bucks! and Zombie Tycoon.

According to our traffic tracking service AppData, the turn-based action RPG Squids isn’t ranked on either iOS or Android charts.
