Liquid Media Integrates Miss Kwirk into Studio-as-a-Service Partner Platform
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liquid Media Group Ltd. (the “Company” or “Liquid”) (Nasdaq: YVR) is pleased to announce the selection of Miss Kwirk as the first gaming intellectual property (IP) for development within its Studio-as-a-Service offering.
To launch the process, Liquid intends to partner with a leading co-work space provider and leading cloud computing provider on a contest, which will see individual creative professionals in Vancouver, New York and Los Angeles compete to bring their version of the Miss Kwirk character to life. Further contest details will be announced in the coming weeks, with an expected start date in summer 2019.
Miss Kwirk is the first title in Liquid’s Retro Reboot initiative, a five-title series designed to expand the franchise potential of popular retro titles owned by the Company. Based on the incredibly popular 90’s title Kwirk, Miss Kwirk is a new puzzle game for mobile, PC and gaming consoles that has strong potential for redistribution across multiple mediums. Based on the entries received for this contest, Liquid may relaunch additional titles from its library of retro games through its Studio-as-a-Service offering.
With Liquid’s mission to empower the next generation of storytelling through innovative digital tools and strategic partnerships, the Company views this Studio-as-a-Service pipeline as the future of game development.
“Streamlining content creation and moving workflow to the cloud is part of our growth strategy and a secure platform helps to make this possible,” said Daniel Cruz, Chief Financial Officer for Liquid. “We’re thrilled to have Miss Kwirk as the first Liquid title that will allow individual artists to contribute to the game’s ongoing development regardless of physical location or hardware requirements.”
Liquid’s Studio-as-a-Service offering is powered by StratusCore Inc., a technology leader that is moving digital content production into the cloud.
