Austin, TX, May 6, 2013 - - Stratotainment, LLC, recently launched mobile game publisher and developer, today announced a freshly inked strategic partnership with creative team, Thunderdog, to develop it’s inaugural mobile game.

Thomas Hertzler, Stratotainment Founder and CEO, stated, “Thunderdog, with it's highly-talented and experienced team, is a perfect match for our strategy. They are creative, passionate and incredibly dedicated to developing the style of innovative mobile games we plan to release. I think what really makes this a unique relationship, is that both companies were formed concurrently and independently, with core-values very much aligned. Add the like-mindedness of both companies and you have a blueprint for a new kind of co-operation that will carry far into the future.

"Thunderdog, LLC. is excited to collaborate directly with industry veteran Thomas Hertzler as he rekindles a legacy of game making with his new publishing company. Stratotainment understands that the publishing model is changing and is constructively searching for new ways to amplify the product developers work so hard to create. This makes them an aware publisher - an ideal partner in a fast-moving world of mobile technology"

“With off-the-shelf development tools, such as Unity 3D, it’s staggering how things have changed in the development process. We’re now able to literally cut the development time in half and focus on game content.” said Hertzler.

Further details of the game itself will be announced on May 9, 2013. Check for details.
