MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Mar 11, 2014) - Soul and Vibe Interactive Inc. (OTCQB: SOUL), "The Company," a video, mobile, and computer games publisher, announced today that it will participate in Game Connection 2014, which will take place at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco from March 17th through 19th as well as The Game Developers Conference (GDC), which will take place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from March 17th through 21st.
The Company's CEO and President, Peter Anthony Chiodo ("Tony"), will meet with game development studios, marketing and publicity companies, console platform licensors, and owners of licensed-brand intellectual properties to explore publishing, product acquisition, and business development opportunities.
"In 2013, Soul and Vibe attended Game Connection and The Game Developers Conference and the experience was extremely valuable. We solidified the membership of our Strategic Advisory Board and we were introduced to new development partners with whom we have developed solid relationships and strong games for our line-up," stated the Company's CEO and President, Peter Anthony Chiodo ("Tony"). "A direct outcome of attending last year's conferences was the recent worldwide launch of our innovative 'match-3' game Timeless Gems on Facebook and the Apple iOS and Android Beta release in Canada and the Netherlands. At the end of last year, we also acquired a product that we were first introduced to at Game Connection 2013. I am very excited about this product and look forward to announcing it in the coming weeks."
Timeless Gems creates an innovative play experience by combining highly popular "match-3" game play with board game elements. This combination lets players experience classic stories like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in a whole new way. Game Informer, one of the games industry's most influential publications, said Timeless Gems is "a gem of a 'match-3' game" and that it has "the charm and gameplay chops to bring in people for whom Candy Crush is starting to go stale." Candy Crush, played by over 15.5 million people worldwide each day on Facebook, is currently the number one "match-3" game in the world. It generates annual revenues of approximately $481 million. Timeless Gems was developed by Telos Entertainment.
Game Connection brings together key players from the games industry to meet, do business together, and to connect with new industry professionals. According to Game Connection, their 2013 conference drew 1640 attendees from more than 56 different countries and included companies, publishers, distributors, investors, and IP owners.
The Game Developers Conference® (GDC) is the world's largest professionals-only game industry event. The GDC celebrated its 25th edition in 2011, making it also the longest-running event of its kind. Presented every spring in San Francisco, it is the essential forum for learning, inspiration, and networking for the creators of computer, console, handheld, smartphone, tablet, mobile, and online games. The GDC attracts over 23,000 attendees, and is the primary forum where programmers, artists, producers, game designers, audio professionals, business decision-makers and others involved in the development of interactive games gather to exchange ideas and shape the future of the industry. The GDC is produced by UBM Tech Game Network, a division of UBM plc.
