Liquid Media Signs Deal with A+E Networks
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liquid Media Group Ltd. (the “Company” or “Liquid”) (Nasdaq: YVR) is pleased to announce that it is now the official operator of A+E Networks’ popular story-driven Ancient Aliens: The Game free-to-play videogame across iOS, Google Play and Facebook platforms.
Based on the hit television series broadcasting on A+E’s HISTORY channel and across more than 200 territories worldwide, Ancient Aliens: The Game has over 1-million installs on Android alone complemented by a combined social footprint of over 2.5-million Facebook fans, Twitter followers and email subscribers. Highly rated on both Google Play and the App Store, the game earns revenue through in-app purchases that advance gameplay.
“A+E has been on the forefront of translating story-rich intellectual property across media platforms, developing engaging content that is platform agnostic – all of which is central to Liquid’s strategy,” said Joshua Jackson, Chairman of Liquid Media. “Succeeding on major network television for over 13 seasons is a proud testament to the tremendous blood, sweat and tears that the teams at both A+E Networks and Prometheus Entertainment have invested to ensure Ancient Aliens is constantly evolving, both on television and across other mediums, to leverage its media franchise potential. A+E recognizes the convergence happening in the media, the value of being on the forefront of mobile and the significance of taking intellectual property across all platforms.”
The game's original storywriter, bestselling science fiction author and award-winning game writer, Steven-Elliot Altman, will continue to pen the game's story.
