Leading mobile games publisher Hitcents, in collaboration with Feelingtouch Games and under license from Paramount Licensing, released The Godfather: Family Dynasty mobile game today. This marks the first free-to-play strategy game based on Paramount Pictures’ iconic franchise to be released on mobile platforms. Hitcents, based in Kentucky, and FT Games, based in Hangzhou, China, co-developed the mobile game and will also be sharing publishing responsibilities throughout the world. The Godfather: Family Dynasty mobile game is now live and available worldwide for download on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
In the game, players will enter the notorious criminal underworld of 1945 and become Don Vito Corleone’s devoted Underboss in this untold tale of money, power, and corruption. While fulfilling the role of second in command to the Godfather, the player will fight for the honor and respect in order to help the Corleone’s become the most powerful family in New York City.
“The Godfather has maintained cultural relevance for over 40 years,” said LeeAnne Stables, President of Worldwide Marketing Partnerships & Licensing for Paramount Pictures. “We are excited for Hitcents and FT Games to translate this enduring franchise into a free-to-play strategy game for mobile devices for the first time.”
The Godfather: Family Dynasty mobile game combines real-time strategy with detailed RPG customization, providing users with endless entertaining gameplay. Engaging in treacherous mob skirmishes, building and developing vast estates, and joining up with allied forces will all be essential factors in the pursuit to become a dominant crime Family.
“Due to the amazing success we’ve seen from the soft launch of the game, as well as the overwhelmingly positive feedback from players, it goes without saying that we’ve been looking forward to this day with great anticipation and excitement,” said Clinton Mills, Co-Founder and CEO of Hitcents. “Sharing the Godfather mobile game with the world is an honor and a privilege.”
This year marks the 45th anniversary of one of the most celebrated entertainment franchises of all time.
