We sign an exclusive world-wide representative deal with FOG Studios. More in the PR below...

Philadelphia, Pa – January 16, 2008 – Czech mobile game developer Impossible has signed an exclusive, multi-year representation agreement with leading business management firm FOG Studios.

Established in July of 2003 by Zdenek ©marda, Impossible has since gone on to develop and publish numerous titles for the Java and Symbian platforms including the very first mobile real time strategy game YERS. Over the past five years Impossible has steadily grown, establishing subsidiaries outside of its core Czech studio, and beginning to work with some frontline, high profile intellectual properties.

Impossible has been hard at work on Warlords: Castles, a title based in the universe of the highly popular Warlords franchise created by Infinite Interactive founder Steve Fawkner, who also created last year’s award winning hit title “Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords”.

Impossible COO Miklós Csémy said, “As the mobile industry begins to consolidate and focus on branded IP it takes a truly unique intellectual property to rise to the top. We’ve been fans of the Warlords franchise for a while now and quickly identified it as having huge potential for the mobile space. Although our game mechanic differs from that of Puzzle Quest, I think we’ve stayed true to the Warlords standard of high quality entertainment and we can’t wait to get the game to market. We identified FOG Studios as an integral partner in getting Warlords: Castles and our other concepts the attention they deserve.”

“The mobile games landscape is dynamically evolving at a rapid pace. With carriers reducing the number of direct publishing relationships they wish to maintain, which is pressuring even some longstanding publishers to rethink their product mix, it is increasingly more difficult for solid independent developers to self publish their works and receive a meaningful return on their investment,” says FOG CEO Ed Dille. “Our role as their exclusive business management firm will be to assist them in obtaining additional high profile intellectual properties to showcase their development skills, and also to foster a number of repeat business relationships with North American publishers who will find their skill sets and cost basis very attractive and competitive.”

If you want to catch up with all the activity at Impossible FOG Studios will be showcasing a number of their games at 3GSM in Barcelona and shortly thereafter at GDC in San Francisco.

About Impossible

Impossible, a Czech-based developer of mobile interactive content, has been developing mobile games since 2003. With fifteen people, the company has developed over 30 mobile titles. The company has experience of both, creating an original IP and working with high-profile branded IP, such as Warlords (Infinite Interactive) or Reiner Knizia´s High Society (Dr. Reiner Knizia). Titles developed by Impossible are recognized for their intuitive and highly rewarding gameplay, which is reflected by a number of Awards, including Midlet Review´s Mobile Games Award and MobileGameFAQs.com Gold Award and 2 silver awards in Deutschen Entwicklerpreis 2007. Impossible abilities cover not only prototyping the game, but also porting it to 300+ different handsets. Our in-house tools also cover Bluetooth multi-player connectivity and online multi-player connectivity. Both of these multiplayer solutions are realized by a single API, so we only write one code that will work in both loc al and on-line multiplayer. This saves our publishing partners considerable time and money in reaching the broadest possible audience.
