NinJump developers getting into third-party publishing with new company Backflip Publishing, two games on the way

Having already been quite successful in the mobile gaming scene with games such as DragonVale and NinJump, Backflip Studios is now expanding to include third-party releases onto mobile as well. This will be done through a new company / brand called Backflip Publishing.

Plenty of other companies have done this very thing in the past when it comes to the mobile gaming industry. A few companies include Rovio, Gamevil, and Crescent Moon Games, all of which are publishing third-party games. This means we can add Backflip Studios with their new brand Backflip Publishing to this list of third-party game publishers.

The new brand already has two titles that are getting ready for release as well. This first game will be PlunderNauts® from LightBox Interactive while the second game slated for release is called Seabeard™ by HandCircus. PlundernNauts combines space exploration with epic pirate battles, and features a vast universe to plunder with a wide variety of pirate starships to collect and upgrade.

Seabeard, on the other hand, is a large open world type of game with various islands to explore and a unique quest generation system for nearly infinite content. You’ll also get to do exploration and mini-games like sailing and fishing.

PlunderNauts is slated for release this Spring 2014 while Seabeard is coming to mobile in Summer 2014. No word on pricing yet. If you’re a developer interested in checking this new service out, just hit up the link below.
