MOBILE DJ BUSINESS STARTED
Chaos League Coming To Mobile
Phones; More Digital Jesters Titles Promised
Digital Jesters, the rapidly-growing
Britsoft publisher, has signed an agreement with Buongiorno-Vitaminic S.p.A.,
the leading European multimedia content company, which will see a diverse range
of its PC titles converted to mobile phone.
The first title to appear under this
new agreement will be a conversion of the popular Chaos League from French
developers Cyanide Studio. Developed by the team at Buongiorno – who have worked
on licensed content from companies as diverse as Sony Pictures, MTV Networks
International, MGM, and the major record labels – these mobile versions will
offer similar gaming experiences to their home computer counterparts. The care
and attention lavished on these portable DJ titles will make them ideal for
those fans who want to carry on playing when away from their PC.
"This is an exciting new area both
for Digital Jesters and for fans of our games" says Graham Chambers, Sales
Director, Digital Jesters. "Mobile games are increasing in sophistication all
the time, and it’s only now that we feel phone versions are able to do our
titles justice. Buongiorno has an amazing track record of turning diverse
properties into fantastic, standalone mobile games and we’ll be working closely
with them to ensure the same high quality gaming experience we strive for on PC
is there on phone."
Chaos League Mobile is the first in
a series of 12 Digital Jesters titles proposed under the new deal, and will be
available worldwide from summer 2005 for a wide range of different handsets and

About Digital Jesters Founded in
2003, Digital Jesters is a British-based publisher of computer and video games.
Set up by the duo responsible for launching and establishing the Sudden Strike
and Cossacks series of games in the UK, the firm’s remit is simple: to source
and publish the best games available. The company’s commitment to originality
resulting in it snapping up the original TrackMania game from French developer
Nadeo and DJ’s ethos of community development strategy resulted in the game
becoming one of the sleeper hits of the year. A tie-in with record-breaking
yachtswoman Ellen Macarthur for the firm’s second release Virtual Skipper 3
ensured the game received widespread attention among the elusive non-gamer, and
firmly placed the publisher on the map. The firm has enjoyed four top 10 PC
hits, three of which are from the developers Cyanide, creators of Pro Rugby
Manager and now DJ is expanding its operation to cover additional territories.
It has also published its own comic book to widespread critical acclaim.
