Dundee City West MSP Joe FitzPatrick, Convenor of the Cross Party Computer Games Group at Holyrood, has welcomed news that the city’s newest company, Outplay Entertainment, has released its first two computer games titles.
Launched in Dundee in February with the creation of 150 jobs, the company has developed two games – Word Trick and Booty Quest – for Facebook.
The company was set up by brothers Douglas and Richard Hare, who relocated to the city from the US, and specialises in games for mobile phones and social networks.
Joe FitzPatrick said: “I welcome these exciting new Facebook games from Outplay and hope they will be hugely successful.
“Word Trick is described as a “turbocharged crossword game with a twist and Booty Quest is a “Match-3 game”, which gives players 90 seconds to race to the top the leaderboards.
“I am looking forward to playing the games and to this company’s further successes in the market.”
