Independent mobile developer launches their cult-favorite game alongside the most visible names in the mobile gaming industry.

We are very pleased that RIM chose our application for the initial launch. We've been working with them since they first announced App World, but really didn't know until a couple of days ago if we would make the cut

duzine.com, an award-winning mobile software company and boutique consulting firm, today announced their support and participation in the BlackBerry App World(TM) launch.

"We are very pleased that RIM chose our application for the initial launch. We've been working with them since they first announced App World, but really didn't know until a couple of days ago if we would make the cut," said Mark Desmery, founder, duzine.com.

WordScore was a finalist in the 2007 MOTODEV Game Developer challenge and spread virally from a few beta-testers to dozens of rabid users. "We gave it away to friends and family during the initial development back in 2006 and sort of forgot about it until the middle of 2008. Around that time we started shutting the servers down to cut costs and suddenly got emails from dozens of people we didn't even know. That's when we realized we had a hit," said Desmery.

WordScore is available for $4.99 on Handango, Mobihand, and Research in Motion's BlackBerry AppWorld. A version for Nokia's upcoming OVI store is in the works and other mobile titles are planned.
