Publisher GAMESinFLAMES secures exclusive rights to develop
and publish official game for Burg Schreckenstein the movie.
Munich, July 22nd, 2016 – The wait for the movie adaptation of one of Germany’s most beloved children’s book series will be over soon: Concorde Film is bringing Burg Schreckenstein to cinemas in Germany, Austria and Switzerland starting October 20th 2016. The many fans of the book series can now not only look forward to the film version, but also to the game, which is expected to be released simultaneously with the movie. The film is about a boys-only boarding school in the eponymous Burg Schreckenstein. Over there, the boys find themselves in a running battle with the girls from the neighboring boarding school Rosenfels.
GAMESinFLAMES closely follows the movie’s theme for the game. Players have to choose sides between the Schreckies and the Rosenfels girls, and thus continue the competition between boys and girls on their smartphones. Reaching Schreckenstein’s mysterious knight chamber undetected from chancellor Rex and Horn while overcoming treacherous obstacles is the main goal. Each individual high score will be added to a global leaderboard to clarify once and for all whether boys or girls are best! Graphically, the game turns the young movie stars as well as Lord Schreckenstein (German late night legend Harald Schmidt) into cute game avatars.
Double Smith GmbH, which is part of the remote control productions developer family, is responsible for the development. The game, which will be available on the Google Play and in the Apple App Store, is being published by GAMESinFLAMES.
Achim Kaspers, General Manager GAMESinFLAMES, comments on the collaboration with the creators of Burg Schreckenstein: “It is the first time that we’ve secured a movie license and we’re looking forward to the release of our official game for Burg Schreckenstein. I’m confident that the game will be just as successful as the movie; we will definitely release more games based on movies in the future”.
“We are very pleased about Burg Schreckenstein’s digital extension from the big screen to the smartphone, particularly because the game picks up the humorous feud between girls and boys and allows both the younger and the older audience to continue the clash in the game.”, says Tanja Thomas, Director Marketing & Publicity Concorde Film. Alexis von Wittgenstein, movie producer at Violet Pictures, is outright enthusiastic: “What a game: sneaking through castle towers, evading teachers, playing tricks – just like my own boarding school experience!”.
More information will be announced in the near future.
