VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Versus Systems, Inc. (“Versus”) (CSE:VS) (OTCQB:VRSSF) (FRANKFURT:BMVA) announces today that it has entered into partnership with GameCake, a Los Angeles-based game developer and Comcast portfolio company. GameCake brings friends and families together with games for the devices they already own: streaming media players, Smart TVs, and smart cable boxes.
