San Clemente, CA / December 20, 2013 / ACCESSWIRE / Monster Arts (APPZ), a mobile marketing and app technology innovator, has entered into a multi-year strategic alliance agreement with Worlds Online Inc. (WORX) for the development of mobile- and web-accessible games.
The goal of the partnership with Worlds Online, a spinoff of Worlds, Inc. (WDDD), is to identify and develop revenue-generating games with hip-hop and dance culture themes to help Worlds and Worlds Online gain exposure with and increase database/user profiles of this targeted consumer demographic. Monster Arts and Worlds Online will share all revenue streams.
"A long time in the making, this deal makes inherent sense," commented Wayne Irving, CEO of APPZ. "Our goal is to help Worlds Online create its own suite of casual, quiz, trivia, and puzzle gaming technologies and brands to better position the company for capitalizing on and capturing new revenue streams. Our coding prowess and technology, coupled with World Online’s strength in the hip-hop industry and World’s IP will a be formidable force in this burgeoning market space."
Under the parties’ strategic alliance agreement, over the next three years Monster Arts will develop a catalog of no less than 36 Smartphone, smart device, and/or smart TV entertainment apps and related games (approximately 3 per quarter). The apps will focus on generating revenues through the following:
1. app sales on iTunes, Google Play, Barnes & Noble, Amazon AppStore, and others;
2. sales from marketing inside and or through the apps;
3. in-app purchasing of in-game features, additional levels, additional lives, upgrades, and or additional apps.
"We see great opportunity in the development of interactive and casual games geared toward the growing hip-hop and dance consumer communities that control $500 billion in purchasing power" (1), observed Thom Kidrin, CEO of Worlds Online Inc., "I believe such games will help to better connect mobile device users with the virtual, online worlds and gaming communities. We are committed to building mobile- and web-based platforms for this specific genre because we know this space from our work with various hip-hop and entertainment artists and brands and can leverage our existing client relationships. Monster Arts, with its expansive portfolio of mobile games, apps and related intellectual property (IP), is the right partner to help us explore this expanding and exciting space."
Monster Arts will be responsible for graphic design, development and coding of games. Worlds Online will be responsible for the distribution of games through its network of websites and expansive social media presence.
