Amazon announces Niko and the Sword of Light on Amazon Prime!


Ever wonder what happened to our animated comicbook app "Niko and the Sword of Light"?

Shortly after it hit #1 in over 30 countries in the "Kids ages 9-11" catergory, we were approached by a number of big studios to option it for film and tv. In the end we went with Amazon. We love the possibilities of a series on Amazon Prime for binge watching.

A few hours ago Amazon made their announcement of 5 kids TV pilots and.... Niko and the Sword of Light TV pilot is under way! I'm so proud to be a part of such an incredible project. To think it just started with 4 friends and an idea.

My apologies for tooting my own horn but I'm so happy right now and wanted to share the news... :)
