Skull Island: Rise of Kong is a video game developed by IguanaBee Studios, based on DeVito ArtWorks' King Kong of Skull Island property. It was published by GameMill Entertainment for various platforms on October 17, 2023.


Your reign is at hand! Based on the rich history of Skull Island developed by creator Joe DeVito and based on Merian C. Cooper’s King Kong, this exhilarating third-person action-adventure game lets you become Kong on a journey of vengeance as you fight to claim your rightful place as King of Skull Island.

Take on an action-packed quest to avenge the death of Kong’s parents at the hands of the ultimate alpha predator: the saurian terror Gaw. Traverse the mysterious island and uncover its secrets across a variety of treacherous environments, discovering the power coursing through its exotic flora and fauna. Conquer waves of primal beasts, defeat unique bosses, and rise above all who stand in Kong’s way to being King![2]


The project was reported by Licensing Magazine on December 20, 2022, accompanied by statements from GameMill Entertainment SVP of Business Development & Licensing Andy Koehler and DeVito ArtWorks' Joe DeVito. Koehler commented, "We are thrilled to partner with DeVito ArtWorks’ King Kong of Skull Island and look forward to expanding and bringing the iconic Kong to life in gaming" with DeVito adding, "I could not be more excited to be working with GameMill Entertainment’s talented team that will provide both King Kong fans and gamers the chance to experience King Kong’s primordial world in a gamified way."[3]

Cover art and the Skull Island: Rise of Kong title were leaked on Amazon Spain on July 20; later that day, an official trailer was released.[1]
