Belfast based Outsider Games, in partnership with Lionsgate UK and Northern Ireland Screen, is pleased to announce development of Magic Mike: The Moves. The promotional mobile game will support the Home Entertainment release of Magic Mike in the UK on DVD, BLU-RAY and Digital download from 26th November 2012.
Magic Mike features Channing Tatum, who sizzles in the role of the irresistible Mike, the shining star act in a steamy men’s dance show. The game develops the stripping theme as the player becomes an 'Endless Dancer', performing touch-screen gestures in time with music, enabling their dancer to perform provocative dance routines. Increasing the Strip Power and completing achievements will allow the dancer to strip off items of clothing, revealing their hunky forms! A forthcoming update will also allow the player to customise their dancer in the 'Xquisite Shop' with virtual cash collected in-game.
“Magic Mike: The Moves translates perfectly to the casual gaming market with its edgy concept, interesting visuals, and signature dance moves”, says Outsider Games' CEO Stephen Downey. “Working with Lionsgate UK was fantastic. They are extremely open to new and interesting ideas, with their refined approval and feedback process creating a smooth and fun development environment that we think will be evident while playing Magic Mike: The Moves.”
Lionsgate’s Nicola Pearcey, Managing Director of Home Entertainment and New Media, commented, “Magic Mike is one of the most fun and entertaining movies of the year. Magic Mike: The Moves provides fantastic content to further the immersive experience for fans – and will create exposure to a new audience for the film. Outsider Games have been a pleasure to work with and this app demonstrates their innovation, creativity and understanding of what our audience wants.”
Magic Mike: The Moves is now available on the Apple App Store, Google Play and Amazon App Store.
Magic Mike: The Moves received funding from the Northern Ireland Screen fund supported by Invest NI and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund
