Fans Will Get First Look at App on “Tanked” Episode Airing November 29th at 10pm
November, 27, 2013—Discovery Communications and Nancy Glass Productions announced today a partnership with app developer Game Pill, to launch the official Tanked Aquarium Game App. The app, based on the hit Animal Planet series, Tanked, is now available for download on iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad at https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/id741671891?mt=8.
Following the antics of two brothers-in-law as they run the largest aquarium manufacturing company in the nation, Animal Planet’s Tanked dunks viewers into the high-decibel, family-owned business of Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM). Led by business partners Wayde and Brett, this 13,000 square foot facility, located in Las Vegas, produces some of the most outrageous, larger-than-life and one-of-a-kind tanks for some of the most striking fish and clients around. New episodes of Tanked air Fridays at 10pm on Animal Planet.
Through the Tanked Aquarium Game App, players become the proud owners of a virtual fish tank and will have the opportunity to choose their favorite fish, decorate the tank and above all, keep their fish swimming and happy. Players will enjoy mini-games and can connect with their friends to share their creations via Facebook, SMS texts and email. The app also includes an in-game currency to extend the experience with tank upgrades and more.
Fans can get an inside look at the app from the Tanked stars themselves, Wayde King and Brett Raymer, by tuning into the November 29th episode. The episode, titled “Betty White’s Got an App for That,” features a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the apps creation and Betty White’s first Tanked aquarium.
The Tanked Aquarium Game App joins a growing roster of digital offerings from Discovery Communications that allow fans of specific shows and brands to enjoy their favorite personalities and programming beyond the television broadcast.
