Vancouver, BC, March 21, 2023 – East Side Games Group (ESGG) is thrilled to announce their studio, East Side Games (ESG) as well as one of their recent releases, Star Trek: Lower Decks – The Badgey Directive, have both been shortlisted for Mobile Game Awards.
As revealed March 15, ESG has been shortlisted in the Best Developer category of Pocket Gamer’s Mobile Game Awards. Furthermore, Star Trek: Lower Decks – The Badgey Directive, developed in partnership with Paramount Consumer Products and Mighty Kingdom, released worldwide in September of 2022, is shortlisted in the Best Storytelling category of the awards.
In addition to these exciting nominations, ESGG is also delighted by the successful launches of Milk Farm Tycoon (February 2023, co-developed with NoPowerup) and Doctor Who: Lost In Time (March 2023, developed in partnership with BBC Studios and Bigfoot).
As Star Trek: Lower Decks – The Badgey Directive and Doctor Who: Lost In Time are both connected with major IPs, ESGG is pleased to see the fan bases have embraced the opportunities to engage with their favourite franchises in the mobile game format. Milk Farm Tycoon continues to impress as an increasing number of mobile gamers discover this farming simulator.
These new games follow the successful release of The Office: Somehow We Manage, developed in collaboration with Universal Games and Digital Platforms and inspired by NBC’s critically acclaimed, Emmy® Award-winning U.S. version of The Office, which is now streaming exclusively on Peacock.
Building on these successes, ESGG is confident relationships with Creative Artists Agency and other partners will lead to strong additions to the mobile game market as well as the company’s portfolio.
“With the recent award nominations and success of our releases, in addition to a number of major IP and developer partnerships on the horizon, we expect great things for ESGG. As fans first, we’re thrilled to be developing these upcoming titles in large part because we know they’ll be fun to play,” says Jason Bailey, CEO of ESGG. “Moving forward, we will continue to focus on our goal of providing creators the tools to successfully deliver mobile gaming experiences that engage players every day.”
