Sava Transmedia has Big Plans

Gaming veteran Alain Tascan launches a new social gaming company called Sava Transmedia to be based in Montreal Canada. The company intends to build an army of developers into a force to be reckoned with in social gaming. Articles and anlysis from:

The Montreal Gazette “I want to show that we can build something with a head office here,” said Tascan, who will serve as CEO of the new venture. “Hopefully, this will be an example for others to follow.”

Gamasutra ” It’s clear that Tascan’s new company is intended to address a potential imbalance in power regarding the lack of digital-first game companies in Montreal, a city that has historically been a key console game hub. “

Financial Post ” Globally, the market for social games is estimated at $9-billion. Growth is particularly strong in China and the United States, where the social gaming industry is expected to expand by 20% and 15% respectively from 2010 to 2015, according to the William & Blair Co. “
