Breakpoint plays footbag

January 19, 2007

Breakpoint, a rapidly growing developer and publisher of entertainment software for wireless devices, has been granted a license by the International Footbag Players' Association (IFPA) to develop and publish a first-ever branded mobile game featuring footbag.

Based on the agreement, Breakpoint becomes the exclusive mobile partner of IFPA and receives its worldwide license for the period of 2 years. The license provides Breakpoint with rights to feature official footbag rules and moves, as well as the IFPA logo and name in the game. Due in the summer of 2007, the footbag mobile game's release is going to coincide with the 2007 IFPA World Footbag Championships.

"IFPA is very excited about the opportunity and exposure from Breakpoint's footbag mobile game," said Julie Symons, Exective Director of IFPA.

"We have more licenses to come this year and we're looking forward to the fun of working on the footbag game" - said Paweł Feldman, Publishing and Licensing Manager at Breakpoint - "Both Breakpoint and IFPA count on the game also making footbag itself more popular".

Footbag for mobiles is one of the several license-based games to be in-house developed, ported and published by Breakpoint in 2007, according to the new company strategy.
