Walt Disney Internet Group Buys Living Mobile
Posted on 7-Nov-2005 22:22 | Tags Filed under: News



The Walt Disney Internet Group has acquired Living Mobile, an European mobile game developer and publisher. The move is part of The Walt Disney Company's overall strategy to leverage technology, supporting the group's growth plans for its mobile business and raising its profile in the mobile games category.

"We're committed to maintaining our position as a top-tier mobile content publisher with a portfolio including both Disney branded content and content from third parties," said Mark Handler, executive vice president and managing director of WDIG, International. "Purchasing Living Mobile is a key part of that commitment. They have proven track record in mobile game publishing and world-class talent in this new and highly competitive game category, and their strong, existing library makes us a serious competitor in games."

Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Munich, Living Mobile develops and publishes mobile games across Europe and in Singapore. Its portfolio of more than 70 games includes games based on popular content licenses including Hudson Soft's Bomberman and Lode Runner, CAPCOM's Resident Evil -- ATN, and Saitek's Mephisto Chess M.E., as well as a line up of original titles and classic puzzle and card games including Solitaire Deluxe.

This year the company was ranked among the top 10 European mobile game publishers in an analysis based on both games and distribution network, by research firm Mobile Games Analyst.
