TEEPEE GAMES ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH SETGO

London, UK – 28 th September 2011 – TeePee Games, the rapidly growing games discovery platform for social, smartphone and online flash games, is pleased to announce it has signed a deal with Liverpool based development studio Setgo. The partnership will see Setgo’s first original Facebook IP Castaways be made available on the TeePee Games discovery platform.

Setgo is a software development studio focused on creating games and technology for open, networked and social platforms.  Founded in 2010, Setgo is headed up by Jason Chown (Technical Director), Christian Lavoie (Creative Director) and Clemens Wangerin (Managing Director), all of who were formerly part of the executive team at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

Castaways is a survival-based adventure game currently in beta on Facebook and Hi5.  Shipwrecked and stranded on a mysterious desert island, players must tackle  various survival tasks and carefully manage their resources to survive, prosper and possibly even escape.  Social features have been integrated into the game, allowing players to send messages and view their friends’ basic statistics. The latest expansion, Chapter 3, launched at the end of May and introduced a host of new characters, locations, activities and weapons to the Castaway island. 

Clemens Wangerin, Managing Director at Setgo comments, “ TeePee Games is dedicated to bringing promising games like Castaways to the forefront of the social games scene, so we’ve been looking forward to working with them for quite some time.” 

Darren Newnham, Head of Content at TeePee Games says, “It’s a real joy to have signed up Setgo as Castaways is an amazing game.   With vast stretches of map for its players to explore and a realistic food-based health mechanic, Castaways has the potential to become one of the best survival games on Facebook.” He adds, “I’m sure our users will be thrilled to discover the game.”
