IncaGold Acquires Asylum Games

by Rainier on Dec. 20, 2005 @ 8:58 a.m. PST

IncaGold announced today it has integrated its Asylum Games division - a German mass-market publisher bought by IncaGold in May 2005 - into its existing operation for the Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein (GAS) market.
IncaGold has published 28 titles to date in these territories, utilising BMS Modern Games as its distribution partner. IncaGold is rapidly expanding its product output and is planning to release 30 titles in the first quarter of 2006 into the German-speaking marketplace including: "Mafia Contract Killer", "Roller Coaster World", "Trailer Park Trash", "Bowling 2006" and the first three instalments of the company's "99 Games" series at a price point of EUR 9.99, together with the Turbo Games budget range all on PC CD-ROM.

Carsten Korte, formerly Managing Director of Asylum Games and now VP Sales Germany, Austria, and Switzerland for IncaGold plc, will head up the operation IncaGold GmbH in Switzerland, which will be responsible for all the above territories.

"We have come a long way at IncaGold in 2005, listing the business on the AIM market of the London Stock-Exchange and publishing 28 titles successfully during the course of the year. A focused presence in the GAS marketplace was the next natural step. From our Swiss office we can now service the German retailers, press and consumers in a dedicated fashion", commented Carsten Korte.

IncaGold is actively looking for further acquisitions to its product portfolio of mass-market PC products and is openly inviting any developer or publisher in these territories to submit titles and contact the company.

A dedicated website for IncaGold's German-speaking users is planned for launch in early 2006.
