SARASOTA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Obscene Interactive, the gaming subsidiary of OBJ Enterprises (OTCBB: OBJE), and its partners reached a new milestone today in their pursuit of a share of a global games industry forecast to grow to $86.1 billion in 2016. The joint venture announced that mobile testing will begin next week on Creature Tavern, a gaming app poised to begin generating revenue this year.
The game could be hitting the market at exactly the right time. Market analyst Newzoo predicted last week that mobile gaming will grow at an average rate of 19 percent for smartphones and 48 percent for tablets, grossing $13.9 billion and $10 billion, respectively, in 2016. Combined, mobile gadgets will take a 27.8 percent share of the global gaming market, up nearly ten percentage points compared to this year.
Creature Tavern has been designed to give OBJE and its partners a bright, bold presence in that explosive marketplace. The downloadable app is a strategy and time management video game that will give gamers the delicious challenge of serving angry and exotic monsters in a medieval tavern, taking care to earn as much money as possible as the characters circulate in and out of the watering hole.
“The game has been tested extensively using desktop computers, but as our target release date approaches, it’s time to begin working out the final mobile kinks,” said OBJE CEO Paul Watson. “We can’t wait to see how the game performs on the most popular tablet and smartphone platforms.”
OBJE’s development partner, Novalon Games, is currently hosting a video of preliminary testing on Creature Tavern at www.novalongames.com/blog.
OBJE is working to deliver a wide range of innovative gaming products for the Apple (AAPL) App Store and Google Play (NASDAQ: GOOG) platforms alongside companies such as Glu Mobile Inc. (NASDAQ: GLUU) and The9 Limited (NASDAQ: NCTY).
