DIGITAL COMICS: Ape Entertainment announces Squids Comic App
Ape Entertainment, in association with independent game developer The Game Bakers, today unleashed a wave of adventure onto the App Store—the
Squids Comic App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Exploring the backstory of the chart-topping game series, “Squids,” the comic app is priced at $.99, which includes the first issue and, for a limited time, the second issue at no additional cost.
Additionally, SQUIDS and SQUIDS Wild West get free updates on the App Store with new content and in particular The Ballad of Clint and Sammo, a mini-comic book in two parts that reveals how the mighty Sammo first crossed path with the most wanted Squids Clint.
As for the comic app, Issue No. 1, entitled “SQUIDS: TO THE EDGE OF THE SEA,” dives into the deepest part of the story when our heroes Steev, Clint, and the others investigate the secrets of the missing Winnick to uncover the mystery of the Black Torrent. And what they find kicks off a swashbuckling adventure like none the Seven Kingdoms have ever seen.
“We had a blast developing the SQUIDS universe with the input from the talented crew at APE. We are confident the comic book will appeal to fans of the series and to comic book lovers as well,” said Audrey Leprince, The Game Bakers’ COO and cofounder.
But wait, there’s more cephalopod-tastic excitement in Issue No. 2, KA-POW! It’s the continuation to our wall-busting first issue. Did Steev get in over his helmet? Can Clint rally the Squids against their Oozy opponents and save Winnick’s home—and its many secrets—from the grasp of the nefarious Baron? Will anybody be able to catch that book-snatching shrimp? Find out when the action continues in SQUIDS: TO THE EDGE OF THE SEA #2!
