FiveOneNine Games Launches Publishing Program at Casual Connect Seattle

Today at Casual Connect Seattle, FiveOneNine Games, dedicated to creating and publishing high-quality social and casual games, announces the global launch of the FiveOneNine Games Publishing Program. FiveOneNine’s Publishing Program connects FiveOneNine with the best game developers in the world allowing them to jointly bring the hottest social games available in the marketplace to a large audience of users under the FiveOneNine brand. FiveOneNine Games is a joint venture of the EW Scripps Company (NYSE:SSP), one of the largest media companies in the United States, and Capitol Broadcasting, the largest media company in North Carolina.

FiveOneNine’s Publishing Program is unique to the industry, giving developers a high level of transparency and therefore having a rigorous selection process. Only the best games that fit the company’s strategy and the corporate brand identity of FiveOneNine Games and its parent companies will be admitted into the Publishing Program. Criteria for selection include fun, compelling game play, player-focused social elements and content that aligns with FiveOneNine’s vision to make social games with content from the real world for casual gamers.

Developers that are selected will benefit from strategic guidance from FiveOneNine, involvement with strategic decisions, community management support, testing insight, hosting and deployment support, game performance analytics and confidence knowing that their game is one of only 10-20 titles that FiveOneNine is publishing per year. Each developer’s game will also receive the same level of analytics, design and community as FiveOneNine’s in-house titles.

“With FiveOneNine’s Publishing Program, developers now have an unprecedented opportunity to partner with a top games publisher that will provide creative input and support,” says Tim Horan, Chief Revenue Officer of FiveOneNine Games. “We are excited that this program will allow us to work with developers to bring consumers smart, creative games.”

Interested developers should email hello@fiveoneninegames.com and include an overview of current and future titles as well as provide a description of the game in development, genre, target audience and phase of development; use the subject line ‘publishing program’ when submitting proposal. FiveOneNine Games is dedicated to creating and delivering high-quality, free to play, social games for iOS, Android, Facebook and other social platforms – titles include recently launched, Political Rampage, and upcoming, Campaign Story.
