Macclesfield, UK and Almere, Netherlands (PRWEB) October 6, 2006
Clickgamer.com, Europe’s leading Direct To Consumer portal for mobile games is exclusively delivering the world’s first downloadable commercial mobile game to GP2X console gamers worldwide. The game ‘Blazar’ is created by Elements Interactive, the award winning studio behind the popular cross platform mobile games library EDGELIB. Blazar is the first of a series of GP2X games that will be created by Elements Interactive to satisfy the appetite of GP2X console gamers who have until now been confined to mostly emulated retro games on this highly capable and commercially untapped linux based device.
“To-date, the handful of commercial games available for this device come pre-loaded on SD cards. There does not exist a secure and viable sales channel to bring commercial GP2X games to market effectively, direct to the GP2X console community. Clickgamer.com is going to change this,” says Joint Managing Director of Chillingo Ltd, Joe Wee. “We are paving the way to bring great games to the owners of this great gaming device, the GP2X console,” he added.
“We are sure that this venture will start a trend amongst the development community to devote resources to making quality commercial games for what until now has been touted as a ‘Linux-based retro renegade console,'” said Chris Byatte, Joint Managing Director of Chillingo Ltd. Chillingo runs the highly successful content commerce sites including clickgamer.com, clickapps.com and clickbands.com.
“We are very excited with the launch of Blazar as it pretty much showcases the extent of the flexibility of our multi-platform games library, EDGELIB. With this library, developers can now port their titles to the GP2X with minimal hassle, and open up their intellectual property to a new market of gamers,” said Danny Hoffman, CEO of Elements Interactive.
Chillingo Ltd is a privately owned company in the United Kingdom. The company was founded as a content agnostic company, covering all aspects of the mobile content value chain. Chillingo runs clickgamer.com, clickapps.com and clickbands.com. More information about Chillingo’s products can be found on the Internet at http://www.chillingo.com.
