Based in Warsaw, Poland, City Interactive
has been developing and publishing games for international markets since at least 2002. Now they're expanding their efforts to the DS and Wii, with a focus on casual and special interest gaming. No specific titles have been announced yet, but I'm hoping they focus on quality instead of quantity--casual games can be good if done right, and both EA and Ubisoft have learned that cranking out shovelware doesn't work.
