Press for Big Fish

Big Fish Games, Inc. today announced that it has appointed David Stephenson as chief financial officer, following more than 20 years of senior financial and operational leadership at Amazon.com and Procter & Gamble.

There are not many games in the App Store that capture the essence of Death At Fairing Point. If you enjoy mystery romance novels, this may be the perfect game for you.

Big Fish Games is launching a game for the Amazon Kindle electronic book reader today as part of a diversification into new markets.
The Kindle has primarily been an eBook reader to date, so this move shows that just about any electronic gadget — even those that weren’t meant to host games — can become game-playing devices over time. It could also be a harbinger of more things to come, since Amazon is reportedly working on a tablet computer for launch this fall as it tries to cope with the fast growth of Apple’s iPad.

Big Fish Games emerged as a dominant developer and publisher in the mobile games market over Mother’s Day weekend. With their “Mother’s Day for Moms” promotion on iPhone and iPad, Big Fish Games achieved category-leading results, claiming 15 of the top 25 paid iPad game rankings and the coveted #1 paid app ranking on the front page of Apple’s iTunes’ App Store with Drawn®, one of the company’s internally developed flagship brands.
