LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 18, 2013) - Writers' Group Film Corp. (OTCQB: WRIT) and its wholly-owned subsidiary Amiga Games, Inc. (AGI), a videogame publisher of classic games for a wide range of smartphones and mobile devices, today announced distribution for its library of titles through the Nook's multi-channel content distribution platform. Barnes & Noble Inc., the largest U.S. bookstore chain, launched the first version of the Nook e-reader in 2009 to secure a place in the fast growing e-books market. The Nook has sold 10 million units since its release and recent sales have rocketed after Barnes & Noble lowered the price to $129. The distribution arrangement will bring AGI's classic games library to Nook HD and HD+ tablets through the Nook Apps store for the winter holiday season.
Commenting on the new distribution arrangement, Writers' Group CEO Eric Mitchell said, "The addition of Barnes & Noble Nook Apps store distribution is geared toward developing new market segments and expanding Amiga Game's exposure to 25-49 year olds, which is the largest demographics for Nook owners. Barnes & Noble's Nook tablet will help us to better introduce, and re-introduce, Amiga Games's classic titles to this demographic."
On July 8, 2013 Amiga Games Inc. announced that it had entered into an agreement to be acquired by Writers' Group Film Corp. (OTCQB: WRIT), a Los Angeles-based content distribution company.
