SGN becomes Jam City and announces a new Peanuts game

Mobile gaming agency SGN launched as we communicate that it has a new title, Jam City.

This isn’t the first time the company has rebranded — it was known as MindJolt sooner than shopping for SGN and then taking on the title in 2012.

The change may be an inevitable reflection of the company’s — and the commerce’s — transition from social to cell video video games. CEO Chris DeWolfe (who beforehand co-founded MySpace) knowledgeable me that whereas SGN glided by an 18-month rebranding practice, Jam City was actually the first title that obtained right here up as a threat.

But do avid gamers actually care regarding the title? DeWolfe talked about, “We’ve asked ourselves the same thing. In a perfect world, we would love to have our consumers identify our games with Jam City, but I don’t think we’re naive … It’s most important to the business community and to our employees.” He added that it helps reinforce Jam City’s “playful-yet-aggressive corporate culture.”

Jam City, which says it has seen revenues develop 100 % yearly for the earlier 5 years, will be saying that it has acquired the rights to create a cell game primarily based totally on the Peanuts comics strip by the late Charles Schulz. So will in all probability be creating what DeWolfe described “a casual puzzle game with a very deep storytelling element to it” with beloved characters like Charlie Brown and Snoopy, scheduled for launch later this 12 months.
