Mr.Goodliving Ltd. was a Finnish video game developer and a video game publisher based in Helsinki, Finland. It was founded in 1999, and acquired by RealNetworks on 6 May 2005.[1] Mr.Goodliving was focused on games for mobile phones, the iPhone and other high-end portable devices.

The company was best known for the casual sports game franchise Playman Sports,[2] spanning numerous incarnations such as Playman Summer Games, Playman Winter Games and Playman World Soccer. Along with original intellectual property, the company worked with several high-profile licenses such as Trivial Pursuit,[3] South Park,[4] Scrabble,[5] and the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.[6]

In addition to its games, Mr.Goodliving developed EMERGE, a proprietary development platform which enables rapid and scalable publishing of games to more than 2000 handsets in 20 languages.[citation needed]

On February 9, 2011, Real unexpectedly announced to close Mr.Goodliving.[7]
