KORG DS-10 Developer Dabbling In Social Networking Games


image AQ Interactive ambitiously started out as an Xbox 360 publisher with Tetris: The Grandmaster Ace before moving on to (relatively) bigger budget action games like Bullet Witch and Vampire Rain. They’ve scaled back since then, canceled Cry On, and went back to making mahjong games with anime licenses for the PSP.


Their new strategy includes making games for Mixi, Japan’s largest social networking service. AQ Interactive announced Browser Sangokushi for mixi, which might be analogous to a theoretical Sim Feudal Japan for Facebook. Not sure if this is a sign that AQ Interactive has fallen on hard times or if they spotted an opportunity ignored by other publishers. Square Enix started making MySpace games so the latter option is realistic.
