At the latest G-star Global Game exhibition in South Korea, Appxplore (iCandy) Ltd signed exclusive publishing deals with Nanali Inc and MoviGame Co. Ltd for their games Hellopet House and Penguin Dash respectively.

Appxplore (iCandy) Ltd has signed an exclusive 3-Year license with Nanali to publish Hellopet House worldwide, a mobile game developed by Nanali based on the wildly popular virtual pet simulator Hellopet. Hellopet House will be published in 8 international languages and is expected to enter early access in January 2020 and a global launch slated for the first quarter of 2020. Hellopet House is an interactive pet collection game where players can cook, garden and craft with their adorable pet assistants. Players will be able to play with over 20 different pets and gradually rebuild and renovate their home with the pets that they have grown to love from the Hellopet Virtual pet simulator.

Appxplore (iCandy) Ltd has also signed a 2-year license to publish with MoviGame to publish the game Penguin Dash. Penguin Dash is a casual game where players help a penguin save newborn baby penguins and escape as the ice tiles below start falling away. Penguin Dash will have players racing through the icy wonderland as they earn coins, gather power-ups to unlock new penguins and challenge other friends.

These agreements boost the efforts of iCandy Interactive in expanding the growth of game developers and studios in the region. Along with these new published titles, iCandy Interactive will be releasing multiple new titles developed by its studios Appxplore (iCandy) Ltd and Joyseed Gametribe starting with the launch action game from the latter, Rocky Rampage: Wreck ‘Em Up.
