Virgin Comics to tap the mobile market with Jump Games

Jump Games, the new face of Paradox Studios, has developed 2D and 3D mobile games based on the characters of Virgin Comics. Three new games based on the characters featured in the Shakti series and an application on Deepak Chopra’s recent book have been developed by the company.

The new mobile games – Devi, Ramayan 3392 AD and The Sadhu – are based on the titles from Virgin Comics. While the application – Deepak Chopra Kama Sutra – is being developed based on his latest book. The application will explore Chopra’s views on the connection between spirituality and sexuality.

Sharad Devarajan, CEO of Virgin Comics, said, “Jump Games has a production quality and expertise that competes with the best mobile gaming companies in the world. We are thrilled to work with such a like-minded partner to bring a new level of interactivity for our great stories and character to gamers worldwide.”

In the past, Jump Games has developed mobile games based on Bollywood actors and actresses and also created several PC games. Speaking more on the new offerings, Salil Bhargava, CEO of Jump Games, said, “Virgin’s larger-than-life characters provide us with a tremendous scope to recreate the magic of a comic book both on 2D as well as 3D gaming platforms. Our games based on the Shakti series are not only suited well for Indian audiences, but have a strong global appeal as well.”

The worldwide marketing of the games will be done by Jump Games and the company has tied up with mobile operators across the world for distributing the content.
