World Record attempt in Mobile Gaming

Swedish game developer Jadestone today announced the intention to break a World Record in Mobile Gaming during the E3 show in Los Angeles. Never before has a game been played by so many simultaneous players – on one and the same phone.

Press Release
Stockholm, Sweden
May 5, 2006 - For immediate release



Wednesday May 10 at 4.30pm (PDT) at the E3 Trade Show in Los Angeles, USA, will be when the historic World Record is set. The record attempt will be held in the Nordic Pavilion at E3, West Hall 2352. Thanks to Kodo, the new award-winning mobile puzzle-action game it has been possible to allow many friends to compete each other, simultaneously on the same phone. Up to 8 players on most phones, but theoretically 26 players on some handsets, can participate in a frantic quest for survival.

The actual number of players taking part in the official record attempt is still to be determined but Tommy Palm, designer of Kodo, said:

"Kodo is designed to be a social event in itself, more than a game. The idea behind it is to let people have fun and laugh together. Obviously the more players the merrier but practical issues have so far limited the actual number in all mobile games. Our intention is to squeeze in at least 8 players on a Nokia 6280, but we'll see...It might be possible to add even more people."

Anyone interested, is cordially invited to attend the record attempt. Refreshments will be served as well as the opportunity to try out Kodo or even participate in the actual record breaking. Please contact Marcus Legler, details below, for information.
