NEW YORK, Nov. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Online gaming company Arkadium (www.arkadium.com), whose titles can be found on its top-ranked game site Arkadium.com, and Fremantle, one of the largest and most successful creators, producers and distributors of scripted and unscripted television content in the world, today announced a partnership to bring popular game shows to millions of online players.
The first casual web game to be developed and released on Arkadium.com, the #1 online game site designed for grownup players, is Family Feud: Online Game (https://www.arkadium.com/games/family-feud). Like the popular game show, this special edition web game features hundreds of fun and challenging survey questions where players answer 'survey says!' to gain points. After the first three rounds, if the player has enough total points, they move to the iconic "Fast Money" round, an exciting and fan-favorite of Family Feud™.
Arkadium will also develop other web games from Fremantle's classic game show library, including The Price is Right™, Card Sharks™, and Press Your Luck™ as well as represented brand Loteria, all of which will be released on Arkadium.com.
"This partnership represents our commitment to being the ultimate creator of games designed for grownup players," said Jessica Rovello, CEO & Co-founder of Arkadium. "These classic titles truly resonate with players 35+, a demographic that represents 41% of all game players but, unfortunately, continues to be underserved by our industry. We're on a mission to change that."
"Family Feud is widely regarded as one of the most perfectly constructed game shows, combining interesting questions, great humor, and fast-paced game elements. Fremantle is proud to partner with Arkadium in bringing fans of Family Feud a new way to interact with their favorite game show," said Angela Hueber, VP of Commercial Partnership at Fremantle. "Our game show fans are perfectly aligned with Arkadium's core demographic and we look forward to rolling out an exciting slate of online web games featuring some of our iconic game shows in the coming months."
Family Feud™ is one of television's longest-running and top-rated game shows watched by audiences worldwide. First introduced in the U.S. in 1976, the US version of Family Feud has aired in 87 territories across all seasons and 67 territories have made local versions of this much-loved game show format.
For 20 years Arkadium has been the ultimate creator of games designed for grownup players. Arkadium has developed dozens of hit titles enjoyed by millions worldwide.
