Pocket Games, Inc. Game Idol Hands Goes Cross-Platform Ahead of Schedule

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2015) - Pocket Games, Inc. (OTCBB: PKGM), a fully reporting video game development, testing and IT Services company, announced today that its title, Idol Hands, will be available on more platforms allowing for an increase in revenue from the title.

Pocket Games launched Idol Hands in early 2015 and has been updating the game regularly since then, increasing its foot-hold in the 'God-Game' Genre since launch. With the recent incorporation of Indian Operations, head of Studio Druhin Mukherjee has conceived a development strategy that will see the game made available on such platforms as Xbox Live™, PlayStation Network ™, Google Play™ and Apple's AppStore ™ with the Apple Mac Version going live in time for the high revenue Christmas period. This should prove a great testing ground for this multi-platform strategy.

The digital delivery ability of games published to these platforms makes the cost to enter relatively small and means a potential multi-million-dollar upside for Idol Hands as the development of the title is largely already paid for, leaving these platforms as incredibly profitable ventures for the Company.

Since its launch in early 2015, the title has been a Premium PC downloadable game and has seen critical acclaim in its genre. On the back of this success, the Company intends to gain further market penetration by tapping into the highly lucrative Console and Apple Mac Markets as well as redesigning the gameplay to make the title available on Mobile Platforms in late 2016.

Originally developed in partnership with Intel™ and distributed as an OEM title with Creative Labs™ Senz3D™, Idol Hands is a 'God Strategy' Game whereby the player takes the role of a God and gradually takes over a land, populates it with his people and builds farms, temples, workshops, garrisons and houses. Set in a fantastical tropical island world where the player has God-like powers over volcanoes, earthquakes and meteors as well as having the responsibility to make sure his people, the Furlings, grow and prosper when faced with evil Gods from other worlds.

Pocket Games, Inc. recently announced that, having recently incorporated its Development & Testing Studio out of purpose designed offices in Pune, India, Pocket Games has already won a prestigious software services contract with a multi-million dollar US based Loyalty Campaign Services company worth in excess of $120,000 per annum.
