Oh, Sugar Honey Ice Tea!
Glu Mobile Inc. announced today that they have signed a deal with DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. for developing and publishing a mobile game with the Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa license.
"'Madagascar' was an enormous success and created a broad fan base around the world. We're very pleased to announce this license with DreamWorks Animation to bring the Madagascar brand and its well-loved characters to mobile subscribers worldwide," said Jill Braff, Senior Vice President of Global Publishing, Glu Mobile. "Our production team is working closely with the DreamWorks team to create a vibrant and entertaining game that contains elements of the movie but has a storyline and game mission unique to itself."
Glu's mobile game will be based on the cinematic sequel to the hit 2005 animated comedy, Madagascar. The game will launch simultaneously with the film on November 7, 2008. Let's hope it can break the movie games curse.
