HTML5 is one of the biggest buzzwords in social gaming today, and there are many companies betting high on the technology to become a standard for making games in the near future.
Now GREE has announced it has invested in a company that focuses on HTML5, Tokyo-based startup Wizcorp. That’s the only detail that made it into the press release: the amount and scope of the deal weren’t disclosed.
Wizcorp was founded in 2008 and has a French CEO, Guillaume Hansali. A team of (largely) foreigners, experience in smartphone development (a sought after asset in Japan’s social gaming industry today), and HTML5 expertise: the deal actually makes a lot of sense.
