Jago Studios, an independent developer of mobile games, today announced it is partnering with The Topps Company on the development of an upcoming mobile game based on the iconic Garbage Pail Kids property. The card-collecting role-playing game will include characters from the original GPK line of collectible trading cards and stickers issued by Topps in the 1980s, as well as contemporary cards more recently released.
“Garbage Pail Kids are icons of the ‘80s and a mobile card battler featuring their freaky antics is a natural expansion for the infamous and beloved brand,” said Stuart Drexler, Jago Studios Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We are thrilled to be working with Topps and look forward to bringing these memorable characters to life in a new way fans can interact with, directly on their mobile devices.”
Added Ira Friedman, Vice President, Global Licensing at The Topps Company, “For fans from the ‘80s or the new generation just learning about the brand, virtually battling with GPK collectible cards offers a new mobile social experience that remains faithful to the irreverent heritage of Garbage Pail Kids.”
Currently in private beta, the upcoming free-to-play mobile game will be available worldwide on the App Store and Google Play.
