Mumbai, India-based mobile game developer Indiagames announced today that one million of its BREW-based applications have been downloaded so far this year. The company noted that it reached this 1M mark in a shorter span of time than in 2005, indicating "the increased availability and adoption of its titles in India and around the world." The company singled out their licensed BREW releases The Mummy, Scorpion King, Predator,
and Spy Kids
as their leading BREW releases in 2006.
“Indiagames began developing wireless applications using Qualcomm’s BREW solution because it is an extremely versatile and flexible platform that has enabled us to introduce innovative and exciting games not just in India but across the globe,” said Vishal Gondal, CEO and founder of Indiagames Ltd.
He continued, “The BREW solution has been instrumental to us once again achieving the one million download mark, and we are certain that our relationship with Qualcomm will continue to grow and set new benchmarks in the world of mobile gaming.”
Qualcomm itself released statistics toting the continued adoption of BREW in June, when it announced that publishers and developers had earned more than $700 million from the sale of BREW applications and services since the first operator launch of BREW-based services in November 2001. This number is especially impressive when you consider that only one year previous, the total revenue since BREW's launch was just half that amount, or $350 million.
