Selatra signs Tropix, Island Paradise of Gaming fun
Company announces game deal at GDC in San Francisco
Selatra, the global distributor of mobile Java games, announced today it had signed an exclusive deal to distribute 'Tropix, your Island Getaway', in both the North American and Canadian markets.
The award winning game will be distributed through Selatra's channels in the second quarter of 2007 following a deal with Airborne Entertainment Inc, the leading provider and publisher of premier mobile entertainment content and applications.
A big PC hit created by Robot Super Brain, Tropix is a unique combination of four different games, all set within a sunny island paradise. Players collect 'sand dollars' enabling them to travel to new islands, buy toys and food for their Tamagotchi-styled monkey and discover even more games to play.
Announcing the deal at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Sean Cronin, CEO of Selatra, said Selatra customers would love the diversity of Tropix and that it would make a perfect addition to the company's casual game portfolio:
"Easy to play and highly addictive, Tropix blends many classic game play ideas into one title," Cronin said. "Tropix is undoubtedly a fantastic deal for our casual gamers - one download delivers four games with state of the art graphics, which are quick and easy to learn and can be played in short bites or in long sessions." "We have relationships with every major wireless carrier in North America, so when we were looking for a global distributor of mobile entertainment content to help Tropix reach the widest possible audience, it had to be Selatra," said Airborne President Andy Nulman.
Puzzle fans will relish the challenge of 'Sandoku', the familiar Sudoku game, while shoot-'em-up fans will head for Puffer Popper action. Jungle Jump, is an adventure through the Tropix rainforest, but don't forget to look after your pet monkey or he will misbehave!
"Tropix has been developed to the highest standard by Creative North, a world class developer of games for the mobile phone," Sean Cronin continued. "Whether you're a fan of puzzles, adventures or word games, Tropix offers 'an island of fun' for everyone."
Phil Mundy of Creative North added: "We are very excited by the launch of Tropix across the US and the rest of the world territories. Tropix offers great playability and superb value with truly global appeal. We also look forward to forthcoming projects with Selatra and anticipate an excellent future relationship."
