Magmic CEO interviewed on


johncris.jpgIt’s always nice to be reminded that not all companies are being run by faceless drones. Case and point is a recent interview on, where Magmic CEO John Criswick laments on the future of his company, as well as filling in the holes of it’s past.

A decent read, and it should be noted that John and his crew have a lot to do with where the mobile gaming industry is headed – and they’re putting BlackBerry handhelds at the forefront. Pretty awesome.

How about a scoop on your next project. What’s next for Magmic?

There are a few things coming up:

– we are launching the retro classic Miner 2049er across all mobile platforms and into the PC platform as well
– our game pipeline for 2007 is full of additional well known retro classics and current popular Web casual games but am not able to release those details
for BlackBerry technology, PIN to PIN messaging will certainly play a part in our 2007 strategy but can’t elaborate more at this stage

Maybe someone’ll finally make the PIN technology worthwhile. Here’s to hoping.
