History[edit]

Big Blue Bubble's original logo

Founded in 2004 by industry veteran Damir Slogar, along with co-founders Claudette Critchley and Mark Maia, Big Blue Bubble specialized in casual games. Its first game, Bubble Trouble, was used in marketing campaigns by Nokia and it was followed by space thriller Captain Lunar, which was used as a launch title for the Sony Ericsson T610. Soon after, Big Blue Bubble began adapting film and television franchises, such as 24 for handheld devices.[2] In the mid to late 2000s, the company started moving towards console development, to include the Wii and PlayStation 2 platforms.[3]

Present[edit]

More recently, Big Blue Bubble has returned to its roots in mobile gaming, and following the 'freemium' business model. They have also begun focusing on original intellectual properties such as My Singing Monsters, Thumpies, and Burn the Rope.
