Wednesday 25th June 2008. Dundee, Scotland. Innovative casual game developer Tag Games has announced a new approach to mobile game development, with a ground-breaking money back guarantee.
The offer, which is effective immediately on all J2ME, BREW, iPhone, Blackberry and Smartphone projects, is based upon an objective scoring system that defines quality based upon pre-defined delivery objectives as well as external game analysis.
Managing director Paul Farley explained the rationale behind the scheme.“Tag has first-hand experience of the difficulties involved in a publisher or intellectual property owner selecting a trusted development partner. We realised that we could immediately and effectively reduce the risk to partners, from the development side of the equation.”
“Tag has worked very hard to build its reputation of delivering an outstanding service in terms of scheduling, budget and game-play quality. We are proud to be the first developer to offer a money back guarantee for partners using our mobile development service.”
Tag's development guarantee should prove especially attractive to traditional game publishers, brand owners and media companies who have yet to move their properties into the complex and rapidly-evolving mobile gaming market.
Farley continues,“Creating mobile games is a complex and specialist process that often belies the seemingly simple nature of the end product. We are now supporting hundreds of devices, thousands of SKU’s, dozens of languages and a multitude of new technology features, such as full 3D visuals, multiple connectivity options, motion sensing and touch-screen controls. Tag Games provides a bespoke, end-to-end service which removes all of the barriers and risks for prospective clients. The combination of Tag's skill, experience and capacity with the money back guarantee provides an unbeatable proposition!”
Tag Games– whose founders have previously helped create massive global hit games such as Grand Theft Auto and State of Emergency– has had a hugely successful year during which it has tripled headcount, achieved and is maintaining profitably, raised investment and delivered a number of original and branded high-quality casual games to the global market.
The company was recently approved as a Nintendo DS™ and Wii™ developer complementing existing support for the majority of mobile technologies including Apple iPhone, Blackberry, Smartphone, J2ME and BREW.
