VeriSign Deals with JoWooD for Distribution
Transforming classic computer games into Java-applications
VeriSign, provider of intelligent infrastructure for the networked world, today announced its partnership with JoWooD Productions Software AG, to deliver popular video games to mobile devices.
"VeriSign is committed to providing the richest content with an exceptional user experience that is most relevant to our customer's customer," said Kevin Dent, Head of International Licensing and Syndication for VeriSign. "JoWooD has great blockbuster brands which we feel can make an easy transition to the mobile space. The combination of expertise from JoWooD and VeriSign brings a new force to the gaming marketplace."
The JoWooD game concepts to be launched this fall have never appeared in the mobile marketplace. VeriSign will transform these classic computer and online video games into a Java-application for various mobile devices in the market place.
"We are looking forward to the cooperation with one of the leading companies in the sector of digital commerce and communication," says Albert Seidl, CEO of JoWooD. "We are confident that JoWooD, in combination with Verisign, will strike new paths in the mobile games industry. This transatlantic exchange and synergy of know-how are the basis for further innovations."
