Rick and Morty Get Schwifty in Zynga’s Hit Game, Merge Dragons!
Characters From Award-Winning Show Take Over Game in Limited Event Series
SAN FRANCISCO – November 22, 2019 – Zynga Inc. (Nasdaq: ZNGA), a global leader in interactive entertainment, today announced an in-game license deal with Adult Swim to bring characters from the Emmy Award-winning TV series, Rick and Morty, to Gram Games’ Merge Dragons!. Rick and Morty appear in the puzzle adventure game in a special live event taking place on November 22nd, 2019. Get ready to squanch some dragons, broh!
The collaboration brings Rick and Morty to Merge Dragons!’s special events that reward players for healing land and collecting points. In the game, Rick and Morty are playing Merge Dragons! and hack their way into the game to retrieve the Stone of Reckoning, a powerful item that opens portals to forbidden worlds. This causes the pair to crash-land in Dragonia, the world of Merge Dragons!, where fans can expect plenty of super-scientific mayhem to ensue.
“We love-a-wubba-dub-dub the idea of Rick and Morty joining us in Dragonia given their packed, intergalactic schedule” said Bernard Kim, President of Publishing at Zynga. “As superfans of the show, we‘re honored to have them interact with our players in a way that both fans of the show, and Merge Dragons!, will enjoy. Who doesn’t want to see Dragon Rick evolve?!”
Merge Dragons! Is available to download free on the App Store for iPhone and iPad, as well as Google Play. For more information about Merge Dragons!, visit the game’s community channels on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
