Parents, get ready for more nautical nonsense. Viacom Inc.‘s Nickelodeon has made a deal with Activision Blizzard Inc.‘s publishing arm to develop and publish video games based on the network’s cartoon “SpongeBob SquarePants.”
Santa Monica-based Activision Publishing Inc. has signed on as the master video game licensee for the kids’ show featuring the porous character, Burbank-based Nickelodeon said Thursday. SpongeBob games had previously been made by THQ, which filed for bankruptcy last year.
