"Digital Chocolate has been a driving force in promoting social interaction within the context of mobile gaming," said Gregg Sauter, Nokia's director of third party publishing. "They are also an award winning publisher dedicated to bringing innovative games to the masses. It is these qualities that make Digital Chocolate a perfect fit for our N-Gage offering, which allows publishers to innovate with respect to quality, ease of use and community interaction."

Digital Chocolate's newest game series, DChoc Cafe(TM), brings an exciting range of games to the N-Gage platform. DChoc Cafe merges the most popular and accessible casual games with the next generation of social gaming on mobile.

A "virtual cafe" featuring casual card, board and puzzle games similar to those found at a cafe or other neighborhood meeting place, DChoc Cafe offers users the opportunity to stay connected with friends through mobile gaming when they want. Additional features in DChoc Cafe allow players to create customized characters, earn prizes and make game recommendations.

"DChoc Cafe is a perfect complement to the Nokia's next generation N-Gage platform," said Gary Schofield, president of networks, Digital Chocolate. "N-Gage provides the tools we need to tap into the powerful device performance and promote social interaction between players through games, which is completely in line with Digital Chocolate's philosophy.
