Established in 2014 in the mobile games hub of Charlottetown, Canada, icejam is a mobile games studio founded by Stuart Duncan, a mobile gaming innovator and entrepreneur. Duncan was the founder of Bight Games which altered the free-to-play (F2P) mobile games market with the launch of the wildly successful Trade Nations. After Bight was acquired by EA Mobile, Duncan went on to produce The Simpsons: Tapped Out, one of the most successful mobile games of all-time. Combined, the two games have generated hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.
Over the last two years, icejam has developed a proprietary Playable Data™ game engine that transforms personal device contextual data (location, time, sound, light, movement) with real world data streams (weather, maps, traffic, markets and more) – the result of which is a new F2P game experience called “Connected Reality”.
“Connected Reality” is the next big step in the evolution of mobile games and user engagement and offers the potential for tremendous growth and investment return. Qurius, icejam’s first “Connected Reality” game, is scheduled to launch in the coming months for Android and iOS.
