New Mobile Publisher Lbxgames Formed
German mobile game publisher Lbxgames made its debut at 3GSM today, showing off its initial line-up of four multiplayer-centric titles. The new mobile imprint is a division of Belin-based software company, Lieblinx.
The 25-strong company is working with third-party developers for its initial line-up, with its own mobile multiplayer software as a component.
"Connected gaming is a key driver of the mobile games and entertainment market," Lbxgames CEO Fabian Thiele said in a statement. "In addition to multiplayer gaming, it provides developers, publishers and networks with new opportunities to engage with the consumer and create new and ongoing revenue streams. Options like subscriptions, downloading additional material, new game content and contacting other players from directly within the game."
"Lbxgames has created a technology base that allows us to incorporate these features into all of our games and applications and creates something appealing for consumers, publishers and networks alike."
The company's complete line-up of initial titles:
Armored Forces - A single and multiplayer turn-based strategy title.

Werner - A pinball-style arcade game
