Marvel announced today that Ames Kirshen has been appointed as Manager Of Game Development, a new position at Marvel. Kirshen, of over six years of experience in the production and management of video game projects, will lead a small group to oversee the development of all licensed video games based on Marvel characters along with other members of Marvel's Publishing division. Kirshen will be responsible for overseeing the full Marvel video game development slate. In addition, he will lead the effort in exploring new opportunities in game genres where Marvel is currently either not represented or is under represented. "The multi-billion dollar video game industry continues to be a significant revenue opportunity for Marvel and a high-profile, powerful vehicle to build the awareness of Marvel's brands," said Gui Karyo, Marvel's President of Publishing. "Our appointment of Ames to serve as an in-house Executive Producer and creative liaison for our interactive licensees and game developers allows us to increase the quality, playability and marketing power of this influential product category, fueling higher licensing income and consumer exposure for Marvel." Prior to joining Marvel, Ames Kirshen spent the past six years with Warner Bros. and DC Comics where he helped produce major game titles such as Ubi Soft's Batman: Vengeance and Batman: Rise Of Sin Tzu and Atari's Superman: Shadow Of Apokolips.
