ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) today announces that Kuato Studios are developing a story-telling game App based on the popular adventure TV show Thunderbirds Are Go which is produced by ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures in association with Weta Workshop. Set to release in early 2018, the App will be available on iOS and Android.

Kuato Studios are an award-winning development studio based in the UK. Previous successes from the studio include the Dino Tales and Safari Tales Apps, as well as Code Warriors, which teaches kids to code through games and which was praised by Barack Obama at the White House Science Fair 2016.

The deal for the Thunderbirds Are Go story-telling game App follows on from the recent success of Parker’s Driving Challenge, an App developed by Play With Games, which achieved Top 10 status on iOS in over 114 countries and had over two million downloads in the first few weeks.

Thunderbirds Are Go has aired in over 40 markets, across all continents. The global licensing programme for the show already has over 85 licensees covering all key categories.
