Digital Chocolate, Inc, a publisher of software for mobile phones, has unveiled a new class of networked mobile games that allow consumers to play and connect with friends and members of the Digital Chocolate community.

The first of these new games, Mobile League Sports Network (MLSN) Sports Picks, in which players in the community predict outcomes to upcoming sports events, was introduced at the DEMOfall 2005 conference in Huntington Beach, US.

According to the company, the new games are based on an innovative client-server architecture that allows Digital Chocolate to create a game-play model based on networked communities of interacting players with regularly refreshed content. In the case of MLSN Sports Picks, members answer questions about upcoming sports events to earn points and gain recognition, and to ensure that they receive questions about sports, teams, and leagues that most interest them, members can select their sports preferences, the company claims. MLSN Sports Picks is scheduled to be available for download in October. Digital Chocolate said it will offer two avatar-based games later this year for launch in early 2006.
