I was popping in and out of the media room at CTIA this afternoon when I spotted Michael Selvidge, PR Dude (that’s what his job title says on his card) of VSC Consulting. They do a lot of mobile related public relations and I regularly connect with Michael to find out what’s happening with his roster of clients. It was a surprise to bump into him — he was with client Cellufun — manifested, in this case, by Arthur Goikhman, Chief Executive.
Cellufun has been operating ad-supported mobile games since April 2006 — positively eons in the context of the US mobile industry — and in that time they’ve delivered downloads to over 4 million consumers across the planet. They offer a whole load of games (single, multiplayer, Chess, Sudoku, Casino games and so on) and if you’ve got a wap enabled phone… well, let’s face it, who hasn’t — you can get games at http://wap.cellufun.com.
Arthur was looking pretty happy about today’s news — AOL came a-knocking and Arthur and his team will be providing games for AOL’s burgeoning mobile portal (check it at http://wap.aol.com/games). Good news. Although Cellufun are no stranger to good news. (They won Best Mobile Game at Mobile World Congress recently for their Call of the Pharaoh game).
