YouTube sensation will offer “creative input” on multiple mobile and PC titles

Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg has already got two video games under his belt, but now plans to release more with the help of one of the minds behind the bizarre Goat Simulator.

Armin Ibrisagic, who was instrumental in the creation of Coffee Stain’s physics-based farmyard oddity, has signed a deal between his new studio DoubleMoose and PewDiePie’s media firm Revelmode, The Verge reports.

No games have been announced yet, but it has been specified that the deal will cover “multiple titles across iOS, Android and PC”. PewDiePie himself will apparently offer “creative input” on each game.

The titles are expected to be comedy-centric.

"Comedy is huge in entertainment, but it still feels in its infancy in the games industry," said Ibrisagic. "Felix and I would like to work on changing that."

PewDiePie has previously partners with Outerminds on Legend of the Brofist and Tuber Simulator.
