DISRUPTOR BEAM PARTNERS WITH TILTING POINT FOR FUNDING OF NEW UA EFFORTS TO FURTHER GROW THE HIT MOBILE STRATEGY RPG STAR TREK TIMELINES
NEW YORK – Dec. 20, 2017 – Mobile game publisher Tilting Point and independent developer Disruptor Beam have entered a strategic partnership for the funding of new user acquisition (UA) efforts for Disruptor Beam’s popular mobile strategy RPG Star Trek Timelines. The game has been downloaded nearly 5 million times since its debut on mobile devices in 2016, and reached the top 50 grossing games in the US.
“We are always looking for innovative ways to scale our publishing efforts,” said Jon Radoff, CEO and Founder of Disruptor Beam. “That includes tapping into new distribution channels, working in new ways with our media partners -- or in this case, finding a partner with unique expertise in mobile like Tilting Point to help fund significant growth in our customer-acquisition program.”
This funding partnership empowers Disruptor Beam to scale up its user acquisition efforts while retaining full control over all aspects of the development and promotion of Star Trek Timelines. For Tilting Point, this collaboration comes on the heels of an $18M commitment to grow the mobile game Food Truck Chef.
“Star Trek is one of entertainment’s longest-running franchises with highly dedicated fans and a long list of successes across multiple platforms,” said Samir El Agili, Chief Operating Officer at Tilting Point. “With its compelling gameplay and high-quality production values, Star Trek Timelines is a stellar continuation of that legacy. Disruptor Beam has proven their unique ability to turn the world’s greatest entertainment franchises into hugely successful games, and Tilting Point is very excited to help this exceptional game grow even further.”
Developed by Disruptor Beam and licensed by CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek Timelines is a strategy role-playing game that brings together hundreds of beloved characters from over 50 years of Star Trek. Explore the galaxy with friends, gather your favorite starships, and assemble a dream crew from all eras of the series, including familiar faces like Kirk, Spock, Janeway, Worf, Locutus of Borg, and even characters from the latest series, Star Trek: Discovery. As they participate in missions, players have the opportunity to command a variety of iconic starships and engage in stunning 3D ship-to-ship battles with a cinematic feel. Disruptor Beam has continued to support the Star Trek Timelines community post-release with a steady stream of new features, crew, starships, and in-game events.
