Indiagames to bring World Cyber Games on mobile

MUMBAI: Mobile entertainment developer and publisher Indiagames Ltd has signed an agreement with International Cyber Marketing (ICM), to host the World Cyber Games Competition for mobile phones.



According to this agreement, Indiagames Ltd can hold WCG mobile game competitions or related events using WCG title for 3 years. Also, it will engage in planning and operating mobile tournaments for and during WCG 2005 Grand Final as ICM's mobile game partner.



Indiagames will be actively working with game publishers to select a list of official mobile game titles and launch gaming championships across all key territories in 2005 after the consultation with ICM. ICM has been deliberating mobile games to be included as WCG official games in the future. This agreement was signed in Singapore during the WCG 2005 SP (Strategic Partners) Conference where 38 of WCG strategic partners had gathered in Singapore, informs an official release.



Indiagames CEO Vishal Gondal says "With the advent of 3G and multiplayer gaming and the popularity of gaming competitions, it was important to bring to the mobile games industry a very respectable and truly global game competition. World Cyber Games is a global youth phenomenon which has brought together over one million players across the world for computer and video games. Looking at the size and the temperament of the mobile audience we hope to attract millions of participants and form the largest community of gamers across the world."

Says ICM CEO Hank Jeong, "Based on the success in India, we'll continue to develop new business opportunities using WCG brand with companies all over the world." He added, "We'll foster WCG brand to be equivalent to 'Worldcup' or 'Olympics' in the end by promoting brand value through constant investment and business development."

ICM is the global organizer of WCG, which represents the world's largest computer & video game festival including game competition, conference and exhibition. First held in Korea in 2000, WCG has been constantly striving for globalization all the way up to WCG 2004 in San Francisco last year, which marks the first-held event outside of Korea.

ICM will maintain the 'host city' concept which has first been introduced for the game competitions and WCG Grand Finals are expected to be held in foreign cities in the future. This year's event, WCG 2005, will be held in Singapore in mid-November.
