Bight Games partners up with Sonic Boom for App Store publishing deal

Bight Games partners up with Sonic Boom for App Store publishing deal
I have to confess I hadn’t heard of Bight Games before bumping into its CEO Stuart Duncan (pictured) at the Apple WWDC.

The Canadian mobile and now iPhone developer has an interesting track record, however, as a specialist in mobile wrestling games such as THQ Wireless’s WWE Legends of WrestleMania.

It’s branching out into more original titles when it comes to iPhone, though, and has signed a publishing deal with NY-based games and app outfit Sonic Boom.

Indeed, the first fruit - the addictive Big Top 10 - is already out, and reviewed on Pocket Gamer, too.

The other two games in the deal are cute match-three meets customisation experience Puzzlings and an insect-based tower defence/RTS game Kill All Bugs. Both should be live on the App Store this week, and will also be rolled out onto North American mobile carriers during 2009.

"Bight is committed to making great games, and Sonic Boom has been hugely supportive, giving us free reign to innovate," said Duncan. "Sonic has increased our distribution footprint via major wireless carriers with planned creative tie-ins."

A Pocket Gamer co-founder, Jon can turn his hand to anything except hand turning. He is editor-at-large at PG.biz which means he can arrive anywhere in the world, acting like a slightly confused uncle looking for the way out. He likes letters, cameras, imaginary numbers and legumes.
