TAIPEI, March 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — GigaMedia Limited (NASDAQ: GIGM) today announced attendance to the "Game Connection America 2015" event in San Francisco from March 2nd to March 5th. The Company is aiming at introducing new in-house developed games, while exploring overseas partners for more business opportunities to expand its international presence.
The Company had three games for its premier promotion at the event, namely "Fantasy League", "Deadtopia" and "JaeJae Guardians". The first two titles were developed in partnership with Korean game studios, whereas the latter title was developed by GigaMedia.
"Fantasy League" is a 3D RPG about collecting Creature characters and quest adventures in a 3D picture book, with a Korean styled art theme experience. Players can make use of creature’s various skills, formation and class effects to form a powerful team to battle against the evil forces.
"Deadtopia" is a cross-platform FPS (first person shooting) game, powered by Unreal Engine 3 for both PC and mobile devices. Featured by various game modes and battle scenes, this game also enables the players to play in virtual reality which increases excitement and involvement. "Deadtopia" is expected to be available on the market in the second quarter of 2015.
"JaeJae Guardians" is a self-developed, tower defense casual mobile game. JaeJae, a famous Taiwanese illustrator and an IP acquired by GigaMedia, is the leading character of the game. The storyline illustrates JaeJae on an adventure to save another character while recruiting companions along her journey for support. "JaeJae Guardians" is featured by its triple row battle strategy where players now must consider enemies coming in three row lines instead of the classic simple line tactic.
All three games received enthusiastic responses from publishers and developers at the event. Publishers from different countries showed high interest in licensing the demonstrated three games. The Company will carefully evaluate and select appropriate publishers for partnership and expect all three games to be released on the market for players in the second quarter this year.
