Anyone old enough to have set foot in a video arcade recognizes the name Galaga, the game that had players vaporizing housefly-like aliens in outer space. Now, in the endless hunt for marketable IP, the insectoids are getting their own back story.
Sweden- and L.A.-based production company The Nuttery Entertainment is developing an animated series and other extensions of the 35-year-old Galaga brand. The Nuttery has signed an agreement with Bandai Namco Entertainment, the Japanese video-game firm responsible for Galaga, which was spawned by an earlier classic, Galaxian.
The Nuttery, a new outfit specializing in digital content, is expecting to develop new characters and stories based on Galaga, including an animated series titled “Galaga Chronicles.” The company’s creators, Magnus Jansson and Erik Öhrner, previously founded animation studio Assorted Nuts. The new Galaga projects are to cut across various platforms.
