Kiyat Games’s First Title: Bringing the East to the West with Cannoneering Kittens

San Jose, CA – Feb. 25, 2014 – Kiyat Games, a U.S. based mobile games publisher, announced today that it has licensed its first game, Cannon Whiskers.  Founded in early 2013, Kiyat Games strives to bring the best games from Asia with the global licensor Daou Tech Inc. and the game’s developer, Inappin Co., to bring Cannon Whiskers to the North American market around March of 2014.

Cannon Whiskers, a casual game about cannoneering cats, uses a simple swipe mechanic to launch a cannonball into the air. With the help of a kitty cheering squad, the player must keep the cannonball in the sky as long as possible. Featuring HD cartoon-like graphics reminiscent of Looney Tunes with simple gameplay that appeals to a wider audience, Cannon Whiskers feels like a promising first title for Kiyat Games.

“We are looking to bring more high quality games such as Cannon Whiskers from overseas developers. Though publishing client games from Asia is quite common nowadays, we find that not all games are exactly suitable for the Western market. That is where our internationally experienced team comes in,” said Sun Cho, CEO of Kiyat Games. “Publishing in the mobile games industry is still quite new and there is a lot of untapped potential in the Asian markets. We are looking to seek out the best games out there and localize these games to make it more suitable for the American market.”

After the launch of Cannon Whiskers, Kiyat Games will start ramping up the launch of their next more hardcore game for Q2, 2014.
