    VIDEO GAME PROPERTY

    Action-Strategy Game SPYJINX Launching on PC and Mobile in 2016

    SALT LAKE CITY AND LOS ANGELES, November 11, 2015 - In a new collaboration of artists from video games, television and film, award-winning video game creator ChAIR (Infinity Blade, Shadow Complex), director/producer J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens,
    Mission Impossible, Lost) and Bad Robot Interactive (Action Movie FX) today announced their original video game project, entitled SPYJINX, will debut in 2016.

    Powered by Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4, SPYJINX features a unique mix of action-strategy gameplay, dynamic world-building and RPG character development - all set in a thrilling, treacherous world of espionage. SPYJINX is expected for initial release on PC and mobile devices in 2016.

    In an exclusive video interview released today via the official SPYJINX website,
    J.J. Abrams and ChAIR co-Founder Donald Mustard discuss additional details about the collaboration and forthcoming game.

    J.J. Abrams commented on the partnership and his entry into video games: "I've been a fan of video games for years, envious of the artists and storytellers who have gotten to play in that world. Over two years ago, we met with the geniuses at ChAIR in the hopes of collaborating with them. The result has been something beyond any of our expectations. Since then we have been working closely with them to create something that I cannot wait to get into the hands of gamers all over the world."

    Donald Mustard added: "Bad Robot is uniquely talented at making you deeply care about characters and the trials they experience. As game developers, we knew that if we could apply that knowledge to creating game systems that help players care about the world we build for them and then give them tools that let them shape and exercise agency in that world, then we could create something really special."

    Players can register now at: www.SPYJINX.com to gain exclusive access to the future SPYJINX closed beta when it launches in 2016.
    Additional information on SPYJINX can also be found on Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook.
