Garfield is a household name of perhaps the most famous cat in the world, for the past several decades. Now, Garfield games are aplenty and the next chapter in this cat’s saga will take him to a puzzle game. ENP Games and LYTO Indonesia – which holds the Global License for Paws, Inc Garfield IP have signed a Publishing & Development Agreement and news broke just recently.
So, ENP GAMES will handle initial publishing and developing of the Mobile Match3 Puzzle game with the Garfield IP, and LYTO Indonesia will globally publish it once it is finished. ENP has worked on such games as Food Pop, Candy Holic, Jewel Palace, and other puzzles and has had their titles distributed in over 150 countries. Now, they will reportedly aim at breaking the genre and raising the bar with the new Garfield Match3 Puzzle Game.
LYTO hails from Indonesia. As a major publisher, they are directly responsible for the success of Ragnarok, TERA, and many other titles. They mainly focused on South Eash Asia in the past but they are now aiming to cover the globe. The CEO of LYTO, Andi Suryanto, said regarding this new partnership with ENP Games and the upcoming Garfield Puzzle game:
“I am very pleased to develop the Garfield IP Game. Garfield is a globally famous cat and LYTO is the most prestigious publisher in Indonesia. We will do our best to deliver a very highly qualified game to global gamers in the future. I am pleased with this partnership with ENP who is good at various Mobile Match3 Puzzle Games. We expect that the game will be very enjoyable to many gamers and we will definitely do our best to End Users.”
Garfield IP is owned by Paws, Inc., which is a US company, and the original comic book was one of the best selling at the peak of its fame. It is written by Jim Davis and Garfield, the lazy smart cat who loves nothing but sleeping and eating, has since transitioned to TV animation, merchandising, movies, and games. Now, Garfield will grace the upcoming puzzle game and judging by the seriousness of the announcement, it should do justice to the character of Garfield, at least.
