Mopius was founded in 2004 to create new and innovative entertainment applications and games for mobile phones.
There is no doubt that the game concepts of the current world of gaming are good and well-proven, but porting them to the new mobile devices has two important disadvantages. The first is that users have already seen all those ideas before. The second, even more important aspect, is that none of the ported concepts really utilize the unique features of today's mobile devices.
It is the goal of Mopius to bring mobile gaming to the level where it should be. One example how this can be done is by integrating location based functionality into games. The first product of Mopius, "The Journey", was the world's first mobile game that combined real time localization of the player with a story. Its success proves that this concept works out and is indeed fun to play!
Another part of Mopius' activities focuses on training. The founder and director of Mopius, Andreas Jakl, has been teaching mobile software development at the University of Applied Sciences in Hagenberg, Austria as part of his assignment as an Assistant Professor. A web site called symbianresources.com provides all the materials of the courses at one convenient location to everyone who is interested - for free.
Design and development of internet bases solutions is the other field of activity of Mopius. The most prominent example is "Schlabo's Scripts" - solid internet scripts that helped making the life of more than 100.000 webmasters easier. Additionally, Mopius took care of several tasks related to design and backend systems for customers like Tiscali or Gamesdynamite.
Mopius is as a company that's small and flexible, therefore able to utilize new concepts and technologies. It was founded by Andreas Jakl after his internship at Siemens Mobile, where he had the chance to participate in the development of camera-based 3D games using cutting edge technology. An own company allows producing new ideas with even less restrictions and more freedom to try what has not been done before.
Moreover, many years of experience with development for Internet based solutions provide a good foundation for all challenges that the future will have to offer in this sector.
