Freeze Tag Announces Garfield GO! Soft Launch Results
An Update on the New Game Similar to Pokemon GO but with Garfield
TUSTIN, CA, June 2, 2017 – Freeze Tag (OTC: FRZT), a leading creator of mobile social games, today announced results from the soft launch of Garfield GO! Augmented Reality treasure hunt game in Australia. The game has been live in Australia on Google Play and Apple’s App Store since April 25th.
“Results from the user tests of Garfield GO! In Australia were beyond our expectations,,” said Craig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag. “Based on the wonderful feedback, we’ve implemented the most requested features into the game and are preparing for the launch in North America.”
One of the key new features in Garfield GO! will be the offering of real prizes. When players hunt for comic strip pieces and trinkets, they also have the possibility of finding puzzle pieces for specific prizes. So, in addition to virtual treasure hunting for coins and other game components, when players find all of the pieces that combine to form a single prize package, they are able to receive a digital code redeemable at online stores. Prize partners are some of the most popular online retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Domino’s Pizza, Starbucks and AMC Theaters, to name a few.
Garfield GO! represents the first collaboration between Freeze Tag and strategic partner, Munzee (www.munzee.com). Many Munzee players in Australia have been participants in the test launch period, providing valuable feedback to the Freeze Tag development team.
