Ottawa game company with too many games

For immediate release

March 13th, 2012

(Ottawa, Canada) – Sylien Games has been operating a bit under the radar for 7 years now, but it hasn't been sleeping. Its been busy making games. More specifically, they've been busy making game software that allows them to make great social games fast. After 7 years developing their software, and 130 web games later (these games are on incubation status until they are chosen to be converted to premium versions for sale), they are now ready to take in some of the limelight. With two brand new premium iOS games out today, Momentum Masters and the well-known Dots & Boxes game, they are sure to make a nice splash on the scene.

The online social games market is a difficult one to penetrate for any company, especially when competing with companies like Zynga, Rockstar Games and many others. But it doesn't bother Sylien Games CEO Sylvain Rochon: “We have been planning for this and working our technology and game-making talent for a while. We've designed our business to be adaptable to the times and we're duplicating what works for the big boys and making our own magic as well too”.

With famous trademarks like Tradewars published with a fresh coat of paint and ready for the primetime as well as 5 new premium iPhone/iPad games out in the past 3 months and about 130 more games they can add to the Premium gravy train, Sylien Games is a company to watch. They say that given enough steam under the wings, they could generate up to 10 new premium content games per month and distribute them through very well known channels without having to grow their staff much.

Sounds like a plan is coming to fruition.

>From some internet chatter it is also clear that the company is looking for more content to pass through their newly formed publishing wing, allowing the dozens of game startups in Ottawa and elsewhere a chance to get easy distribution through major networks. Being small means they are easy to contact and deal with after all!

In the coming months, Sylien Games is likely to publish premium content games on the web, iOS devices of all types, Android devices and even perhaps SmartTV (or Apple TV or both!).
