Lab Cave Games and Zinkia Entertainment have announced that they have partnered to create games based off the children’s show Pocoyo, and the games will be released on mobile. Lab Cave Games will be working on current Pocoyo games as well as publishing and creating new games based on the character, though details of any projects in development are yet to be confirmed by either party.
Jonás Ojeda, Head of Digital Rights at Zinkia, said
“Thanks to Lab Cave we can focus on making new audiovisual productions at the same time we optimize our app portfolio both in terms of marketing and technology. And we can develop new games for our audience together to help expand our brand. We are very happy to have an expert and reliable partner like Lab Cave.”
Luis Bertó, Head of Marketing and Business Development at Lab Cave, said
“We at Lab Cave are delighted by our collaborations with Zinkia. This is not only because they are leaders in the Spanish and international audiovisual industry, but because our collaboration will give us the opportunity to develop a joint strategy of development and publication of a game and app catalogue that marries the core beliefs of both companies: quality, innovation, technology and global presence. Most of all, we are thrilled to be able to align ourselves more closely with the Pocoyo universe and reach a whole new generation through the mobile world.”
It is unclear whether these games will be premium titles or free to play titles with other monetisation options such as microtransactions or adverts. Pocoyo first hit TV screens back in 2005 and originally wrapped in 2010. However, the show came back in 2016 and has been running since then.
