B&H Publishing Group releases Tick Squish mobile game


B&H Publishing Group, a division of Lifeway Christian Resources, has released “Tick Squish,” a mobile game for the iPhone and iPad to support the new B&H Fiction medical thriller “Over the Edge” by Brandilyn Collins.

Tick Squish,” the first mobile game from B&H, is now available in the iTunes App Store for free. The game challenges players to stop ticks from running across their screens.

“Gaming is a great way for publishers to tell new stories in the digital age,” said Aaron Linne, executive producer of the game. “This is B&H’s first opportunity to create through this medium in order to introduce readers to new content, like Collins’ ‘Over the Edge.’”

Collins wrote “Over the Edge,” in part, as a response to her own struggles with Lyme disease. Not only did Collins want to entertain with a good story, but also help bring attention to the issues surrounding Lyme disease. Through the release of “Tick Squish,” players learn about Lyme disease after each round is completed and unlock sample chapters of the book by finishing the game.

In “Over the Edge” the lead characters struggle with more than just Lyme disease, but also with a rocky marriage and faith issues. Collins is well-known for her deep, compelling characterizations.

“B&H Fiction’s tagline is ‘Pure Enjoyment,’” said Julie Gwinn, B&H Fiction manager.
