Partnership Provides the Most Complete Solution for North American Game Companies Wishing to Launch Their Products Into the Chinese Mobile Market

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/13/14 -- Chinese public company Talkweb, one of China's leading providers of mobile e-commerce applications, and San Francisco and Shanghai based Concept Art House, a leading art and creative services provider, announce the launch of Spellgun to focus on distribution of North American iOS and Android games to China's massive smartphone market. The partnership follows Talkweb's highly successful launches of Popcap's Plants vs. Zombies 2 and Rovio's Angry Birds.

"Since 1996 we have focused on supporting China's mobile operators, portals, e-commerce companies, and content distributors. As a result, we have an unmatched breadth and depth of relationships across all 29 Chinese provinces enabling us to launch new mobile games in ways that other companies cannot match," said Talkweb CEO, XingYu Li.

"The Chinese smartphone market represents the largest growth and profitability opportunity for North American content developers. Talkweb and Concept Art House have created Spellgun to allow any leading game to be powerfully launched with minimal effort from its North American owners," said Matthew Le Merle, Chairman of Spellgun and Concept Art House.

Spellgun will extend Talkweb's reach into North America with a San Francisco based licensing and support team, and access to a 100+ Shanghai based localization office through its parent, Concept Art House.

"With this partnership, we believe that we represent the most complete solution to North American game companies wishing to launch their products, in exclusive or non-exclusive arrangements, into the Chinese market. We look forward to meeting with leading game developers at GDC and in the months to follow," said James Zhang, CEO of Spellgun and Founder of Concept Art House.
