Swedish publisher MAG Interactive and developer WeAreQiiwi Interactive today announced their partnership on the release of Backpacker – the traveling trivia game for iOS and Android. After a successful launch in Sweden, Denmark and Norway, Backpacker will be fully localised in English and is gearing up towards a worldwide launch. MAG Interactive will act as the publisher, overseeing localisation, marketing and publishing activities.
“It’s been a pleasure to work with WeAreQiiwi on bringing Backpacker to a global audience”, said Daniel Hasselberg, CEO of MAG Interactive. “After seeing Swedish people go nuts over it, we believe that Backpacker shows a lot of potential to capture the hearts of people all over the world.”
Backpacker is a globetrotting trivia game that test players’ knowledge in hundreds of different topics related to different cities around the globe. At first, Backpacker transports players to the streets of Rome or Washington with only 500 coins in their pockets and unfettered wanderlust. Players hustle for money, taking on odd jobs and completing various missions while sightseeing at popular places in order to save up enough cash for a ticket elsewhere.
