We’ve joined TIGA

We really should have done this years ago, as TIGA is such a great trade association for independent games companies….but we’re finally fully paid-up, card carrying members of TIGA. (We do get a card, right?)

 

TIGA welcomes EVIL27 Games as its latest member

Publish Date: Thursday 9th May 2013

TIGA, the organisation representing the games industry, has welcomed social mobile games developer EVIL27Games as its latest member.

Founded by Kevin Corti who has 13 years’ experience of developing serious, social and mobile games, the company focuses on mid-core tablet games and specifically with an interest in exploring the potential for user-generated content for mobile gamers. It has an iOS and Android puzzle game in development which it will launch this summer but the company is currently exploring ideas around user-generated content, or ‘mobile modding’ as a mechanism for driving user acquisition and an engaged and loyal player base.

Kevin Corti said:
“The games market is increasingly becoming one characterised by micros and small independent developers. Our belief is that our collective success lies in positive collaboration and cooperation and we see TIGA as the perfect body to help foster this.”

Dr Richard Wilson, CEO of TIGA, said:
“EVIL27 is a young and enthusiastic company and the type that TIGA is well placed to help with, not least through our provision of networking events, best practice information and advice and discounts from third party suppliers. Networking is particularly important for companies of this size and we are in a great position to assist. I am delighted that Kevin Corti’s EVIL27 Games has joined TIGA.”
