Reaxion will publish Ojom's growing portfolio of applications through its extensive North American carrier network, which includes the top U.S. carriers and reaches over 160 million customers. In return, Ojom will distribute Reaxion's 2006 portfolio in Europe through its worldwide network to over 50 countries through top carriers. Ojom will also offer Reaxion direct consumer distribution through Jamba/Jamster.
In addition, the agreement will result in a number of joint-development projects including titles, such as ET: The Extra Terrestrial and Back to the Future. These titles will benefit from the experience both Ojom and Reaxion have within the mobile entertainment industry as well as both parties' distribution network in the U.S. and Europe.
"This agreement is a tremendous opportunity for us to introduce Ojom's impressive brand portfolio into the North American market," said Misha Lyalin, CEO, Reaxion. "Our partnership will combine Ojom and Reaxion's substantial capabilities to expand the distribution, and the number and quality of game titles released by both companies."
Using Ojom's proprietary development environment, which speeds the porting of mobile games to multiple platforms, these new games will support a wide variety of platforms including Java, Brew, Symbian and Windows Mobile handsets. Ojom will gain access to Reaxion's Gamarama platform that facilitates multiplayer and community gaming for mobile games, including online leader boards that allow players to compete with each other worldwide. The combined technology allows for the development of games that are more connected and interactive for players.
"Our technology assets are very synergistic and will enhance both companies' ability to produce games that support a wide range of handset and platforms globally, with more potential for real-time multiplayer functionality," said Thomas Brokhage, general manager at Ojom. "Like Ojom, Reaxion is a pioneer and an innovator in the mobile games space and with their expertise in 2D, 3D and multiplayer game development and their extensive carrier network, they are the right partner to rollout our branded titles in North America."
