GameCo Licenses Paramount Titles

GameCo, Inc., the New York-based startup company that recently introduced skill-based gaming machines to the industry in New Jersey with its Danger Arena arcade-style shooting game, announced that it has signed an agreement with Paramount Pictures to license three Paramount titles for new gambling machines.

GameCo will produce games based on the popular Paramount films Mission: Impossible and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and the ghost-phenomenon TV series Paranormal Activity.

All three titles will be used to create new skill-based gaming experiences on the company’s Video Game Gambling Machine, or VGM. The company will use the Mission: Impossible license to create a racing game, according to the website. For Ferris, the company plans a so-called platformer game—a style in which players manipulate a character across platforms, floors, ledges, etc. For Paranormal Activity, the company will create a game themed around hidden objects, according to the website.
