Animoca Brands launches official mobile game based on MGM film “The Addams Family”
Animoca Brands Corporation Limited (ASX: AB1, “Animoca Brands” or the “Company”) is pleased to advise that The Addams Family Mystery Mansion (the “Game”), the official mobile game based on the highly anticipated animated movie The Addams Family, has launched globally on the App Store and Google Play.
The Addams Family Mystery Mansion is based on the animated comedy horror movie, The Addams Family, from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. (MGM), which opens in theaters worldwide on October 11, 2019. The Addams Family is based on the franchise spawned by the comic by Charles Addams, first published in 1938, and also includes books, films, television series, animations, video games, and musicals.
The Addams Family Mystery Mansion is a darkly humorous mobile game that invites players to help Morticia and Gomez to reunite the rest of the family and re-furnish their famous home. Through chapters and missions driven by an original story and witty dialog, players collect their favorite characters from the movie The Addams Family as well as expand their catalogue of spooky furniture and home decor.
The Game is made possible by the interactive license agreement (the “Agreement”) between Pixowl, the wholly owned subsidiary of Animoca Brands, and MGM Interactive Inc. The Agreement grants Pixowl a non-exclusive license to use the property and assets of The Addams Family to develop, distribute, and monetise The Addams Family Mystery Mansion for a term lasting through 31 December 2024 (refer to ASX announcement dated 25 July 2019).
