A recent article by European Gaming discusses Flexion Mobile's partnership with Vizor Interactive to bring the popular Klondike Adventures game to smartphones. According to the source, Flexion Mobile signed an agreement with Vizor Interactive to develop and publish a mobile version of Klondike Adventures.
Klondike Adventures is a popular free-to-play building game that allows players to build their own Klondike town during the Gold Rush era. The game has been successful on Facebook, with over 2.5 million monthly active users. The upcoming mobile version will bring the gameplay to smartphones for the first time.
Flexion Mobile is an international mobile game publisher known for releasing games like Hunter's Arena and The Bonfire: Forsaken Lands. Meanwhile, Vizor Interactive is the developer behind Klondike Adventures and has over ten years of experience creating mid-core and casual games. The two companies are coming together to adapt Klondike Adventures into a user-friendly mobile title.
The growth of the hyper-casual games market and the popularity of city-building and simulation games on mobile make this a potentially lucrative partnership. The original article notes that over 40% of Flexion Mobile's audience enjoys city-builder games regularly. Releasing Klondike Adventures on smartphones could capture this interested player base.
Additionally, bringing such a popular PC title to mobile opens the game to new demographics beyond just the hardcore Facebook gamer. The smartphone market hosts billions of global users who play more casually. If Klondike Adventures' gameplay resonates, it could gain millions of new players.
Dead Horizon brokered the original deal. While no definitive release date has been set yet, European Gaming reports that Klondike Adventures will launch on iOS and Android in 2023. Assuming the port goes smoothly, the mobile release could drive substantial revenue through in-app purchases and advertisements.
Flexion Mobile's partnership with Vizor Interactive is a strategic move to adapt a successful title for the massive mobile games market. The smartphone version of Klondike Adventures has the potential to become a top-grossing mobile simulator. Whether the game's virality on Facebook translates to mobile remains to be seen, but the road ahead looks promising.
