Perfect World Entertainment Storms Into Mobile

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Perfect World Entertainment, Inc., a leading publisher and operator of free-to-play massively multiplayer games, today announced its aggressive expansion into the mobile space. Already immensely successful online, Perfect World now brings its unmatched experience with free-to-play core games and a "by gamers, for gamers" dedication to mobile so that any studio-partner may better reach hardcore gamers across all digital platforms.

In mobile, Perfect World acts as both developer and publisher, with a focus on core genres: action RPG, strategy, TCG, MMORPG, and MOBA games. After launching and operating over a dozen of client-based games on PC, Perfect World knows what the hardcore player wants and will keep building hits by leveraging its internal studios, such as Cryptic, developer of the highly acclaimed Neverwinter game, as well as partnering with talented third-party developers. Perfect World is willing to take a risk on studios that show a high level of creativity and passion and is committed to helping these studios grow their free-to-play expertise.

"Perfect World knows how to build great free-to-play games, how to excite hardcore gamers and how to trust great studios with their own creative visions," says Fabien-Pierre Nicolas, General Manager, Mobile, Perfect World Entertainment Inc. "With Perfect World's experience and focus, we believe we will not only break into mobile, but will become a leading mobile developer and publisher."

Perfect World Entertainment looks forward to partnering with the some of the most talented development studios around the world. Some of Perfect World's first global publishing partners include:

  • China based iFree Studio with "Elemental Kingdoms", a trading card game
  • San Francisco based Agent Disco with "The Null Society", an RPG adventure game
  • Seattle based Fugazo with "BombBuds", a turnbased, multiplayer game
  • Austin based Sneaky Games with "Arena of Heroes", an asynchronous MOBA game

"Perfect World was a natural fit for us," says Andrew Lum, Co-founder, Fugazo. "They trusted us day one in our original creative vision for BombBuds and provided advice on our monetization strategy without over-reaching on our core concepts. They are a rare new breed of publisher."

"I met several publishers but only one team took the time to visit our studios, share in our vision of the game and play our game for hours," says David Godwin, Co-founder, Sneaky Games. "Perfect World trusted us to deliver the first turn-based MOBA and we are excited to be partnering with them on Arena of Heroes."
