An insightful look at how Disney produces video game tie-ins to its movie properties over on Verge. Disney hopes to replicate the success of Temple Run: Brave with the new game Monsters, Inc. Run. But Disney doesn’t develop these games itself. Instead it partners with smaller developers:
“It’s fantastic that we would get that recognition,” Segal says of being noticed by Disney. “They were talking to studios and looking at studios to possibly work with, and they approached us and it was kind of like, yeah, this seems like a really good opportunity.” Get Set had released an iPhone game called Mega Run in May — think of it as Canabalt meets Super Mario Bros. — and it was a title that got Disney’s attention.
It looks like a fun game. Right now it’s only available on the iOS. Hopefully an android version will be release soon, so I can play it.
