The “strategic alliance” will play a part in mobile games based on upcoming films.
Reliance Games has announced that it will be partnering with Behaviour Studios, 300-strong development studio based in Montreal that is best known for action shooter WET and the bizarre Naughty Bear to “co-publish mobile games based on upcoming, high-profile feature films”.
Reliance Entertainment Digital EVP of global business Amit Khanduja stated that, “Today’s announcement with Behaviour Interactive is another solid step in building great IP-based games. By partnering with Behaviour, Reliance augments its ability to design and to develop games in a timely manner and at a quality bar commensurate with the films the games are based on.”
Reliance reports that two games to this effect are currently in development. Hopefully, they won’t be based off of Bollywood “blockbusters”.
Reliance Games, by the by, also partly owns Codemasters, developer of the Race Driver GRID series. It seems everyone wants a piece of the mobile gaming pie, and this new deal seems like the best way to go about it for the Indian conglomerate.
