Next Games, the mobile game studio based in Finland, today announced the worldwide release of its first mobile game Compass Point: West accompanied with a comic produced together with IDW Publishing. The first game release from the mobile game studio Next Games, features a rich story set in the Wild West and a highly polished gameplay experience with a unique card collecting mechanic at its heart.

“In Compass Point: West we draw inspiration from the unbelievably rich Wild West theme. The game boasts fascinating characters and lots of humor combined with stunning 3D graphics and an original card collecting mechanic at its heart. This setting lends itself very well to other entertainment formats beyond games such as the gorgeous comic by IDW Publishing”, said Teemu Huuhtanen, CEO, Next Games.

Compass Point: West is an engaging, free-to-play action strategy game featuring stunning 3D graphics, highly polished gameplay and a fun and rewarding card collecting system introduced in a new, original way to the mass casual audience on mobile. The game takes the player on a journey to the old Wild West where they join friends and saddle up for an epic adventure, exploring the open frontier while fighting the hostile takeover plans of notorious oil tycoon, Orville Driller. Along the way, the player will build their own outposts, collect cards to summon allies and encounter a wide range of characters, each with their unique personalities in their mission to save the Wild West.

Next Games and IDW Publishing will distribute the comic worldwide through a multitude of platforms including Apple iBooks and Google Play and is also available on www.compasspointwest.com for fans to enjoy.

“IDW has been developing the Compass Point: West comic since very early in the game’s development, and we’ve enjoyed creating characters and backstories in a way that extends the game’s world,” stated Ted Adams, IDW CEO & Publisher. “The Next Games team has a long-range plan that we’re proud to be a part of.”
