Publisher aims to stronger ties with UK game sector

Online game developer and publisher Spil games has joined UK industry trade body TIGA.

The Netherlands-based firm has more than 300 staff, and its online gaming platforms are used by over 180 million active monthly users.

Spil Games has developed titles including Sara's Cooking Class. It is currently investing heavily in HTML5, having recently announced $5m funding in HTML5 game developers next year.

“The UK is one of the most important developer and publisher markets in Europe. Not only London, which is arguably now the premier tech hub in Europe, but also across the country, with clusters of highly skilled games businesses in the UK all featuring new and established studios that develop really cool, high quality games," said Spil Games head of business development Victor Horbach.

"Spil Games is joining TIGA to build stronger relationships with UK developers and publishers. In return, Spil Games can offer them a platform to reach and monetise a greater audience on the web, on mobile and around the world.”

TIGA CEO Richard Wilson added: “As the trade association for developers and digital publishers, TIGA warmly welcomes Spil Games as a leading global online games publisher and a great addition to our network. I look forward to seeing Spil Games at our events, to connect with other top quality studios and publishers, as well as gaining and sharing valuable insights on both the UK and international online gaming markets.”
