Namco and United Media are to work together on a new Dilbert mobile phone game. No details are yet available on how the game will actually be structured, and it does seem strange to envisage, given that Dilbert spends his days stuck in an office cubicle, contending with deadlines, office politics and stupid users. The mobile game is set to launch in fall of this year.
The NPD Group released a study last summer that said about 27% of mobile phone users have played mobile games. About a third of those gamers have purchased games, while the other two-thirds play the free, built-in games.
Namco has already ported several classic arcade games to mobile phones. These include Pac-Man, Dig-Dug and Galaga.
