Banijay Brands has announced it will extend its deal with game development studio, 9th Impact, for the interactive “Big Brother” mobile game. 9th Impact has partnered with free-to-play games publisher, Tilting Point, for the upcoming launch of “Big Brother: The Game II.”
The multiplayer online reality TV game is available worldwide for Apple and Android devices and PC download. With prize money up for grabs, players can become virtual housemates, experiencing life as a “Big Brother” contestant. They must make strategic choices to remain in the house and ultimately become victorious.
“Following the success of ‘Big Brother: The Game I,’ we are delighted to extend our partnership with 9th Impact,” says Lex Scott, commercial director, gaming and gambling, Banijay Brands. “Bringing in Tilting Point’s publishing expertise, we are set to supercharge the upcoming game, and entertain ‘Big Brother’ fans around the world with this unique and immersive experience.”
“We have been building new house designs, new games and new mechanics like house juries, so I can’t wait for people to play on Dec. 16 and hear what they think,” says Finn Krewer, head of development, 9th Impact.
“Big Brother: The Game” has 2 modes – Housemate and Spectator. The game is free to download, and the Spectator mode is free with optional purchases. To become a Housemate the player must use a Token to enter the House which is an in-app purchase or audition to get an existing Housemate to sponsor their Token entry.
“‘Big Brother: The Game’ has been defining the genre of massively multiplayer reality TV games and the new tournament is introducing more gameplay innovation like real-life auditions, so we’re excited to be extending the reach of this title to a global audience,” says Saad Khan, vice president of corporate development and business development, Tilting Point.
