Former AOL and EA execs join Outplay Entertainment
Outplay Entertainment, the social and mobile game developer, has added two high-profile names from the games industry to its board.
Karen Thomson, a former president of AOL Europe, joins the Dundee developer as non-executive chair. Randy Breen, who has previously been an executive at Electronic Arts and LucasArts, becomes a non-executive director.
Outplay was created by brothers Douglas and Richard Hare, who previously founded The Collective, the studio behind titles such as Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - The Fallen.
The company's first games, Word Trick and Booty Quest, are now available on Facebook.
"I chose to join the Outplay board because I believe Douglas and Richard have the vision, passion, drive and experience to create huge business opportunities as well as fantastic entertainment properties," said Thomson.
