Chillingo Collaborates with Music Mastermind to Publish Music Creation Game Zya on iOS

Chillingo, leading independent mobile games publisher and division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA), today announced that they are collaborating with Los Angeles-based interactive entertainment developer Music Mastermind to publish its upcoming music creation game, Zya, on the App StoreSM.

Zya is the game that turns music lovers into hit-makers. In Zya, anyone can create studio-quality music and share it with the world. You can make a new song, mash-up world-famous hits such as “Paparazzi,” “Fire Burning” or classics such as “Ms. Jackson” and “You Really Got Me,” or combine elements of both to create music that is uniquely yours.

“Chillingo is working closely with Music Mastermind to deliver an exceptional music-making experience for mobile devices,” stated Ed Rumley, COO, Chillingo. “Our dedicated team of publishing experts is advising on the game to ensure that players receive the best experience possible with Zya.”

“There’s not a better publisher than Chillingo to launch with – their vast distribution network and expertise in bringing great games to market will be key to getting Zya into the hands of players worldwide,” said Matt Serletic, CEO, Music Mastermind. “We’ve poured our hearts into making Zya not just a game, but a new way for people to experience the joy of making music, and we can’t wait to share it with the world.”

Zya is slated to launch in summer 2013. Additional details about the game can be found at http://chillingo.com/ and http://www.zyamusic.com/.
