UI Magic buys Korean mobile game developer

Wireless tech company enters new market with Moai

Wireless technology provider UI Magic has entered the mobile gaming market with the purchase of Moai Technology, a Korean developer and publisher specialising in networked titles.

Moai was co-founded in 2003 by Harry "Jun Hwa" Chang, who will now take on the role of chief creative officer and executive VP of Korea operations for San Diego-based UI Magic.

"This acquisition will enable us to move into the real-time mobile networking gaming segment, which we expect will have huge potential in the US," said UIM president and CEO Satoru Yukie.

"The strategic sales/marketing channels with existing major Korean carriers and other global carriers that Moai will be bringing to the table will prove to be a significant asset."
