The games will become more visible and will reach a broader audience, which helps us to build our brands and unlock additional revenue streams. The contract is a milestone for Jumpgate and includes secured revenue as well as additional upside. I have had very good experience collaborating with NACON in earlier game projects and am looking forward to also be able to do this with Jumpgate”, says Harald Riegler, managing director Jumpgate AB.

Uniquely, two games have already proven substantial interest from mobile players thanks to their quality, and Tivola’s new game Cat Rescue Story is promising to be the next great addition to this lineup.
