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.

ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen: I would not go as far to say she’s like the 6 o’clock news but hard news she is not.02/27/2015 - 4:42pm
Andrew EisenYes, Sarkeesian talks about feminist issues through the lens of pop culture media.02/27/2015 - 4:36pm
ZippyDSMleeE. Zachary Knight: Yes but only to the extent that her issues also dwell in reality most of talk radio is 24/7 BS with a hint of pseudo realism. She talks about real issues and uses the games medium as a launching point into the discussion.02/27/2015 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenWe've been over this again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again. Sarkeeisan is not bending the truth.02/27/2015 - 4:31pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen: Going to skip on how they like to bend the truth aren't you? I just might one take you up on finding each instance one day… whenever I have energy…and a brain. LOL02/27/2015 - 4:30pm
E. Zachary KnightZippy, Are you accusing Anita of simply complaining about games in order to make money rather than to actually improve the representation of women in games?02/27/2015 - 4:28pm
Andrew EisenIn the sense that they're both people who talk about things they're passionate about, sure.02/27/2015 - 4:24pm
Andrew EisenThe reasoning for criticism on how female characters are generally portrayed in video games is the same as any other criticism: generally, this is not being done as well as it could.02/27/2015 - 4:23pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen:... so you see absolutely no similarity’s in between Rush and Sarkeesian?02/27/2015 - 4:22pm
Andrew EisenI'm familiar with both Limbaugh and talk radio. What the hell does that have to do with anything?02/27/2015 - 4:19pm
ZippyDSMleeWhat is the reasoning for the criticisms against how fictional characters are portrayed?02/27/2015 - 4:13pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen: Reply to what industries. “The I can make money by A milking a niche base and or B saying crazy things industry.“ You’ve never listened to talk radio or heard of Rush Limbaugh have you?02/27/2015 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenWhat the hell are you talking about?02/27/2015 - 4:05pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen: The I can make money by A milking a niche base and or B saying crazy things industry. Then what is the reasoning for the criticisms?02/27/2015 - 4:04pm
Andrew EisenAgain, nothing you say makes a lick of sense.02/27/2015 - 3:54pm
Andrew EisenNo one is saying the sexual objectification of female characters is causing people to be mean in real life.02/27/2015 - 3:53pm
Andrew EisenIndustries build around what? No one is confusing fiction and reality. No one is claiming fictional characters have feelings or rights or are they themselves speaking against their own objectification.02/27/2015 - 3:52pm
ZippyDSMleeresponsibility kick in to not treat others poorly and have enough self-worth to not be discouraged by the smallest of things?02/27/2015 - 3:42pm
ZippyDSMleeOne could stretch things pretty far and claim that mindsets shaped by fiction shape the real world treatment of real people but my question is which came first the chicken(mistreatment) or the egg(fiction) and where and when dose individual personal respo02/27/2015 - 3:42pm
ZippyDSMleeFrankly it looks more like people are getting fiction and reality confused, fictional characters have no feelings or rights thus to claim they can be objectified and treated poorly make for a somewhat disingenuous argument.02/27/2015 - 3:42pm
