Pocket Games, Inc. Launches Idol Hands Game for Apple Mac™

PKGM to Begin Roll-Out of Title Globally

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 17, 2015) -  Pocket Games, Inc. (OTC PINK: PKGM), a fully reporting Software Development and Testing company, announced today that is following through on its recently announced strategy of releasing Idol Hands onto multiple platforms.

On 3rd November, Pocket Games announced that its Technical Director, Druhin Mukherjee, had an ambitious plan to make Idol Hands, the Company's First PC Video Game Release, across multiple platforms. Today, the Company announces that the first of those, a title for the Apple Mac, is available for role-out and will begin with the task early next week.

CEO, Pocket Games, Inc., David Lovatt, stated, "We are very excited by this release. As we role out the release around the globe over the coming days and weeks, we are hoping to see some really impressive numbers come in via both the Apple Mac™ store as well as the Steam™ Store for the Mac™ Platform."

Idol Hands is a 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.

Originally developed in partnership with Intel™ and distributed as an OEM title with Creative Labs™ Senz3D™, Pocket Games signed a contract to acquire the title from Fluid Games Ltd early in 2014 and has spent much of the year upgrading the play, removing the requirement for the motion technology and implementing a new interaction system.

Pocket Games, Inc. recently announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire Viximo, Inc. a company that connects game developers to social networks through its write once, deploy everywhere platform. Once on boarded to the Viximo platform, social games can be deployed across several social networks, providing accelerated integration and user reach. The Viximo toolset then enables developers to increase user engagement and monetization.
