Stillfront announces Launch of Sira’a Al-Molook (“Age of Kings”) from Babil Games
Stillfront has soft launched the strategy game Sira’a Al-Molook (“Age of Kings”) in the MENA region. The game is published by Stillfront’s studio Babil Games. The game is estimated to be fully launched within a couple of weeks both on iOS and Android.
Babil Games’ Sira’a Al-Molook (“Age of Kings”) is built on a Chinese game Rage of Kings, which is developed by the Chinese developer and publisher Gekko Game. The game is published in many territories outside MENA directly from the Chinese publisher, amongst US and Sweden are two. Babil Games has the exclusive rights to publish in the MENA region. Babil Games’ business model is to refine existing games sourced from proven developers and localize and culturize them for the Arabic speaking audience in the MENA region. Babil has several years of exclusive rights and owns the IP of the culturized material.
Sira’a Al-Molook (“Age of Kings”) is an immersive MMO-RTS (Massively multiplayer online real-time strategy game) set in a beautiful medieval fantasy world, where players build mighty kingdoms, raise armies and face off against each other in epic battles on a global scale. To be a successful monarch, players need to shift their focus seamlessly between internal base-building and external military operations. Building a stable economy in parallel with building armies and facilities, requires strategical capacity and clever research to ensure both economic and military superiority. Players engage in epic battles, form powerful alliances and launch massive call-to-arms campaigns. Sira’a Al-Molook (“Age of Kings”) is a deep mobile strategy game with rich features and engaging content that will appeal to fans of strategy games and large-scale competitive play.
