SouthPeak Interactive, publisher of games such as Trine, 3D Dot Game Heroes, and Dementium II, have announced plans to develop games and apps for Android phones and devices powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 2 graphics processor.
“In keeping with our strategy to aggressively pursue unique opportunities in the digital gaming space, we’re thrilled to develop some of the first games for devices powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 processor,” said Melanie Mroz, President and CEO of SouthPeak. “Android’s rapidly growing market share represents a huge opportunity for SouthPeak and we are proud to be at the forefront of introducing high-quality games applications to this market.”
As someone with an Android phone, I know how barren the Android gaming scene is compared to the iPhone scene, and this is a development with exciting potential. Although I can’t think of one Android phone out that actually uses a Tegra 2, I’m sure we’ll get them soon enough. SouthPeak plans on pushing their games starting around holiday season of this year.
