Sega partners with Gogogic for cross-platform Godsrule: War of Mortals

Sega today announced it’s partnering with Icelandic social mobile studio Gogogic to develop Godsrule: War of Mortals, a cross-platform “build and battle” game for both iOS and the web.

Godsrule is a new fantasy-themed game that seeks to mix social mechanics with core strategy elements. Players are tasked with managing a kingdom, harvesting resources and battling with one another for contested land. Users choose a side between two warring factions and then create their own clans to control contested territory.

The game will be available to play via browser and iPad, allowing for a cross-platform play experience. Sega is clearly looking to tap into the lucrative core-games market, which is especially popular on iOS as evidenced by the runaway success Kabam has experienced with its Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North. Although Sega isn’t known for these mid-core games, Sega has been a presence on iOS mainly due to ports of beloved console games like Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi, and a port of Sonic Jump, an old mobile phone game first published in 2006. Gogogic, in turn, already has produced hits like Tiny Places on iOS and its social massively multiplayer online game Vikings of Thule.
