"We're going to marry our knowledge of crafting quality gameplay, mobile development and social features with the mechanics of player-vs-player and player-with-player to create exceptional games designed specifically for the iOS platform. We're huge fans of the iPad and iPhone so, having spent the last four years working on mobile games, we're excited to build this business around the success of the App Store".
