Storm8 Launches DREAM CITY: METROPOLIS Simulation Game; Partners With Regal Cinemas

Fresh Take on City-Building Game Offers Deep Customization for Seasoned and Casual Players Alike

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 7, 2016) - Leading mobile game network Storm8 today announced the worldwide launch of Dream City: Metropolis (Dream City), a fresh take on mobile city-building games. In Dream City, players have the freedom to imagine, create and grow the metropolis of their dreams. Featuring majestic mountains and a picturesque coastline, Dream City offers players a whole new level of customization to build their city up and out: from astonishing landmarks and splendid parks to players' favorite shops, boutiques and eateries. 

Storm8 also announced a first-of-its-kind partnership with Regal Cinemas, one of the leading and most geographically diverse theater circuits in the United States, bringing a popular real-world brand into players' Dream City gameboard. The integration enables a new way to discover and engage with the Regal Cinemas brand on mobile. Players will later have the option of receiving in-game rewards for watching branded trailers and videos through the custom integration. Dream City is available to download for FREE on iOS and Android.

"Mobile gaming has increasingly become a primary platform for consuming content. At Regal, we always seek innovative ways to extend brand engagement with our audience," said Chris Sylvia, Vice President of Media at Regal Entertainment Group. "Storm8's network approach and deep understanding of mainstream mobile audiences makes this partnership a natural first entry for Regal into mobile gaming and helps us extend our reach. We're excited to see Dream City bring the magic of Regal Cinemas to its players."

Dream City introduces players to a town originally built by great railroad tycoon, Old Man Chesterfield. After mysteriously disappearing, his city falls to ruins and players are tasked with building a new, bustling city -- choosing from an array of customizable options, including businesses, civic buildings, tourist attractions and landmarks. Players meet a diverse cast of characters that represent different industries, including fashionista, Isabelle, town chef extraordinaire, Gus, reliable chief of staff, Rachel, and Dream City celebrity, Slade.

"With Dream City, we wanted to create a dynamic, approachable game that caters to both city-building fans and casual players," said Storm8 CEO Perry Tam. "And with the Regal Cinemas integration, players can bring their cities to life with a real-world establishment. We look forward to expanding these custom integrations with more top-tier brands to allow players to build a truly authentic, personal metropolis."

To keep the gameplay fresh, Dream City will host an ongoing series of special in-game events. The first event, Citypalooza, is a large music festival, which goes live in mid-July. Citypalooza will feature an outdoor amphitheater where Dream City citizens can hang out with friends, chow down on hot dogs and catch their favorite bands. Players will complete challenges to earn coveted VIP Passes, which unlock special rewards and prizes, including a chance to host their own animated concert on the Main Stage.

Dream City also allows players to:

  • Unlock the Mystery - complete quests to get rewards and help solve the mystery of Old Man Chesterfield's disappearance
  • Design & Build - collect hundreds of unique buildings -- from housing to civic buildings and parks to real-world landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and Empire State Building
  • Explore - unlock dozens of neighborhoods to further customize and discover new content
  • Trade - create a thriving economy by trading goods with friends and neighbors
  • Win - play often, build bigger and expand to win prizes and resources that help grow your city
