OverviewLudigames S.A. was a French game development and publishing studio founded on 1st February 2000 by Michel Guillemot as Ludiwap S.A. Set up by Ubi Soft (game development and publishing) and Guillemot Corporation (multimedia products), it was aimed at the mobile market.
Initially the company focused on WAP and SMS games, but as the technology progressed the focus was broadened to PDA and Java games. Since the original name no longer reflected the new business, it was changed on 8th February 2001 to the more general Ludigames. Ludiwap was kept as a brand for the WAP/SMS business and Ludipocket was introduced as a brand for entertainment products for electronic organizers.
On 1st October 2001 the whole of Ludigames merged with Gameloft S.A. (another company set up by the Guillemot family) and was absorbed into that company. At that time Ludigames employed 69 people in offices in ten countries:
