"I-play brings a diverse games portfolio to N-Gage, and we're excited to have them on board," said Gregg Sauter, Director, 3rd Party Publishing, Nokia. "The N-Gage toolset provides the opportunity to deliver new features and richer experiences to consumers through I-play's strong portfolio of content. We look forward to this cooperation."

I-play's portfolio for the N-Gage platform will focus on casual, 'one-thumb' games for the mass market. These games will include prestigious licenses, like the World Rally Championship, which have I-play's casual development philosophy at their core. I-play games provide an easy to play, difficult to master 'dip in and dip out' playability, with a focus on fun for the N-Gage player."
