Taktek Games, launched just over a year ago, secured an international publishing deal with leading independent mobile games publisher, Chillingo, to bring its first mobile title, ‘My Marbles’ to iOS and Android platforms this summer.

“I am very proud of our young team, and very excited to partner up with a renowned publisher like Chillingo,” stated Gaith Kawar, CEO of Taktek Games. “This is the first of its kind deal in the Middle East and establishes Taktek Games as one of the leading game development studios and cements Jordan as the Game Development hub of the Middle East. The game was a 100% in-house effort from concept to design and development and raises the bar for us and others in the region. We have great expectations that ‘My Marbles’ will launch Taktek Games into the international spotlight.”

“We are excited to partner with the talented team at Taktek Games to bring ‘My Marbles’ to the App Store,” explained Joe Wee, Co-General Manager and Co-Founder of Chillingo. “Our teams are working closely together to polish the game to perfection and we look forward to sharing it with gamers around the world,” adds Chris Byatte, Co-General Manager and Co-Founder of Chillingo.

‘My Marbles’ is a physics-based game where players get to creatively aim and shoot marbles in a beautifully 3D rendered environment. They must avoid obstacles including cups, keyboards as well as bounce off of candlesticks and microwaves to hit that special marble with a spin shot or a straight power shot to win. The game features over 250 unique marbles to collect and spans over ten 3D environments.
