Waterfront Entertainment Joins TIGA

June 8, 2010 -

Waterfront Entertainment, a company that specializes in developing games for interactive TV platforms in the UK, has joined TIGA, the trade association representing the game industry in the United Kingdom. Founded in 2004 as a publishing arm of Dundee based developer Denki, Waterfront creates interactive games for TV networks.

To date the company has developed Ben 10: Operation D’Void (Sky), Sam’s Remote (iPhone) and Bookworm (DirecTV). The company also develops iPhone and Flash games. So why join TIGA? Here's the official company line:

"Our sister company Denki has long been an active supporter of TIGA and we enthusiastically believe in the benefit of being part of a strong UK trade body that can advocate on behalf of its members. We are also interested in TIGA’s work to promote the UK games industry to other creative sectors through the Creative Industry Switch program and we hope this will result in more connections and growth for our industry."

Waterfront joins Iguana Entertainment, who joined the trade group on June 3.

Andrew Eisen"It's being used in these cases as short-hand, a catch-all term for the type of reactionary holdouts that feel so threatened by gaming's widening horizons..."07/31/2015 - 3:32pm
Andrew EisenAs Luke Plunkett said in his "Gamers Are Dead" article (the fact that this one was included still makes no sense): "Note they're not talking about everyone who plays games, or who self-identifies as a "gamer", as being the worst..."07/31/2015 - 3:32pm
Big PermWhile I don't think it's very nice to provoke, the actions of the ones provoked rests with them. I also wouldn't say GG are the only ones who like to blow things out of proportion.07/31/2015 - 3:31pm
benohawkWriting an opinion piece wouldn't. Writing a provocative opinion piece in a situation like this? They should of considered the reaction they would get07/31/2015 - 3:31pm
Andrew EisenI still don't understand why anyone who is not one of those jerk faces would take offense.07/31/2015 - 3:30pm
Andrew EisenWell, the articles WERE a slight against the jerk faces responsible for the horrible harassment and abuse we'd seen at that point.07/31/2015 - 3:29pm
Andrew EisenThere was no real slight so the victim(s) in this case are not part of the problem.07/31/2015 - 3:29pm
benohawkThe majority of the blame is on the person overreacting, but if they're still reacting to a real slight then the victim was part of the problem07/31/2015 - 3:28pm
Andrew EisenSure but your analogy doesn't work because cutting someone off means you're in the wrong. Writing an opinion piece does not.07/31/2015 - 3:28pm
benohawkIm not disagreeing that it was an overreaction, I'm saying that if someone beats my ass for cutting them off doesn't mean that I was blameless despite my mistake07/31/2015 - 3:26pm
benohawkI doubt it would of helped goth. it seems a lot of the people who blew up were just waiting for any issue to let loose07/31/2015 - 3:25pm
Andrew EisenI disagree with blaming an overreaction on what people are overreacting to.07/31/2015 - 3:24pm
Goth_Skunkpositions and apologize for any confusion they may have caused. Unless their intent WAS to provoke a sleeping lion, in which case... here we are.07/31/2015 - 3:20pm
Goth_SkunkAn overreaction that probably would not have happened if Gamasutra's article was the only one ever written. And an overreaction that could have also been calmed had the authors all collectively retracted or written follow-up pieces to clarify their07/31/2015 - 3:20pm
benohawkAndrew, neither side is blameless there. Through poor planning or deliberate attempts to offend those articles did push a bad situation to the worse. and the people who blew up are guilty for their reaction07/31/2015 - 3:19pm
Andrew EisenGoth - And the blame for that rests solely on the ding bats who grossly overreacted to a handful of opinion pieces.07/31/2015 - 3:11pm
Andrew EisenHere's a fun fact: Only two of the authors of the "Gamers Are Dead" articles (of which there are about 12) were on the Game Journo Pros list.07/31/2015 - 3:10pm
Goth_SkunkNo! No! Of course not! Nothing wrong with that at all! Nevermind that those articles spawned a huge, almost year-long consumer revolt and culture war that no one in the industry can deny exists. :^)07/31/2015 - 3:10pm
Andrew EisenThere's also nothing wrong with publishing an opinion you know is going to be unpopular with some. So long as it's genuine, anyway.07/31/2015 - 3:08pm
