Spellgun to help Western-made Storm Casters crack Chinese mobile-game market

Spellgun, a mobile-game publisher that takes Western games to Asia, is announcing a deal today with Get Set Games to publish its Storm Casters dungeon-crawler game in China.

Spellgun is a joint effort between Concept Art House, an outsourcing firm that makes art for mobile games, and Talkweb, a publicly traded Chinese company that runs a huge distance-learning business. The companies plan to make it much easier for Western game companies to enter China, one of the most important markets in the future of gaming. Spellgun has published Storm Casters on iOS, and Talkweb will port it to Android later.
