eGames Hires Leading NYC Web Studio(July 21, 2011)
LANGHORNE, Pa., July 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Casual games developer and publisher eGames, Inc. (Pink Sheets:EGAM) today announced that it has engaged Sudden Industries, Inc., one of New York City's leading web development studios, to collaborate on eGames' latest social game by developing web components that will enhance the product's targeted baby boomer focus and accelerate time to market.
Sudden Industries will be providing its highly regarded technology design capabilities for eGames as they have done with other leading companies including Viacom, Barnes & Noble, Pearson Publishing, Here Media, and VAS Entertainment. "I have worked with Bob Holmes and the Sudden crew on several projects over many years, and we are confident they understand our project needs and bring something special to the user experience," said Gene Mauro, President and COO of eGames. "We have something massive cooking here at eGames, so the addition of Sudden is timely and exciting," Mauro added.
"We found the product eGames is working on entirely unique the minute we heard about it," said Bob Holmes, CEO of Sudden Industries. "Having worked with many major media brands in the gaming and social space, we know there is a lack of good content directed at the 40+ audience. The trick in developing a successful product like this is getting the vibe right while making sure the games are easy to use and addictive. It's no small feat, but we believe that this product has all the right elements and we're excited to be working on the title."
