WELLINGTON, New Zealand– September 28, 2010– PikPok™ today announced a publishing agreement with independent game development studio Lexaloffle Games to bring Lexaloffle’s hit PC title Zen Puzzle Garden to iPhone, iPad, and Android. The agreement marks PikPok’s first foray into publishing titles for other game studios after the success of Bird Strike™ and the Flick Kick™ line of popular iPhone and iPad games.
“We’ve been fans of Zen Puzzle Garden since it was first released on PC, and knew it would be a perfect title for touch screen devices with the right marketing and development resources supporting the game,” said Jos Ruffell, manager of the PikPok label.“Lexaloffle Games is the first studio working through our publishing group, and we are adding further titles and partners in the coming months as we ramp up our publishing efforts.”
“PikPok has had great success on emerging mobile platforms and we know that Zen Puzzle Garden will get great support as they bring it to market in a new and improved form,” said Joseph White, Director of Lexaloffle Games Ltd.“We love creating innovative gameplay experiences at Lexaloffle, and this partnership is a great opportunity for us to reach new platforms and audiences.”
In Zen Puzzle Garden, you play a monk raking patterns into the sand of a series of beautiful Japanese rock gardens. Rake sand in lines, up to and around obstacles, being careful not to rake across previous paths or rake yourself into a corner! Cleanly rake all the sand to complete each garden puzzle. There is no time limit, and you can restart the puzzle or undo a move whenever you want, so don't be afraid to take chances in this Zen inspired puzzle game that is like no other.
