Developer The Game Bakers has turned its undersea RPG franchise Squids into something of a hit on iOS and Android. Now they’re stepping (well, swimming) into the digital comics world, courtesy of a deal with Ape Entertainment.
Squids Comics was released on the App Store on Friday as a 69p download for iPhone and iPad. That initial download includes the first two issues of the Squids: To The Edge of the Sea series, with more issues to be sold in-app for 69p a pop.
“Featuring gorgeous artwork and intense storylines, these digital comics and graphic novels based on the characters from the chart-topping game are sure to please fans new and old,” promises the App Store listing.
Squids is just the latest mobile game franchise to get the comic treatment from Ape Entertainment. The company also works with Imangi Studios on Temple Run Comics, as well as with Bolt Creative on Pocket God Comics, and ZeptoLab on Cut the Rope: Comic.
