Idea Fabrik Showcasing New Social Game Development Technology at GDC

LONDON - February 17, 2011

Idea Fabrik Plc. (GB00B61CVK31, TI4.F) today announced that it will be showcasing a new platform that represents a major breakthrough in the development of social games at the Game Developers Conference later this month in San Francisco.

According to a recent report from Business Insights, the social gaming market encapsulates nearly 600 million users and was worth nearly $1.5 billion worldwide in 2010*. Similarly, market research firm Newzoo found that roughly 90% of gamers in the United States play casual games**. Since acquiring the HeroEngine platform for MMO game development last year, Idea Fabrik’s growing engineering team has been working in stealth mode to create a better way for developers to bring their games into this rapidly-expanding space.

GDC attendees interested in learning more, as well as taking a first look at the new technology in action, can visit Idea Fabrik at booth #932 in the South Hall of the Moscone Center from March 2-4.
