Cyber Group Studios partners with Outright Games for first Gigantosaurus video game

The animation entertainment company, Cyber ​​Group Studios has partnered with the games publisher Outright Games to launch the first video game based on the animated Gigantosaurus series.

The hugely-popular CGI-animated program, which is currently airing its first season on Disney Junior worldwide has just been commissioned by The Walt Disney Company and France Télévisions for seasons two and three, and by Super RTL for season two.

The first season will also air on Netflix and on major international networks throughout 2020, such as CCTV in China, Rai in Italy, SVT in Sweden, SRC in Canada or Tiny Pop in the UK.

Capitalising on this, Gigantosaurus: The Game will launch on March 27th 2020 on Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC digital for £34.99. 

 In Gigantosaurus: The Game, players can explore and race across the vast, prehistoric world of Gigantosaurus in a one-of-a-kind dinosaur adventure – part saving the world, part rally racing.

Kids can play as one of their favourite dino buddies from the show – Rocky, Tiny, Mazu, and Bill – as they discover secrets, solve puzzles and save the day. 

Gigantosaurus is based on Jonny Duddle’s bestselling book of the same name. Directed by award-winning director Olivier Lelardoux, the series takes preschoolers on exciting, comedy-filled adventures as they dare to be themselves and explore the world beyond their nests.

In every episode, the curious young dinosaurs explore the mystery of Gigantosaurus – the biggest, fiercest dinosaur of all. They embark on a quest, facing their individual fears and working together to solve a problem.

“This new game represents a big step for us and the creation of high-quality kids’ interactive entertainment,” said Terry Malham, CEO of Outright Games. “Working closely with Cyber Group Studios and the full gamut of original assets from the hit show, allowed us to develop a game that truly feels like playing through an episode of the series.” 

“Gigantosaurus The Game is our first video game with Outright Games. All along the development process, we have been thrilled by the talent and expertise of  the production team,” added Thierry Braille, vice president, Interactive and Videogame Division and Dominique Bourse COO Cyber Group Studios

“The result is a great and innovative game for the whole family mixing action adventure and racing and offering two multi-player modes (cooperative and competitive). This feature will allow families to play together with the key characters of the TV series.”
