Spellgun launches big budget Clash of Gods mobile game

Spellgun, a mobile-game publisher that is marrying the East and the West, has launched Clash of Gods, a fantasy role-playing game where massive armies can engage in huge 3D battles.

The free-to-play title is a big attempt to refashion a hit game made in China to make a big splash in the West. That’s a difficult task, but it’s a big opportunity as companies try to become global players in the $30 billion mobile game market. China has had huge success with monetization and access to capital, but Western gamers have very high expectations, and it’s very hard for companies from outside the region to succeed in the West.
