Patterson Partners for Games Based on Novels

James Patterson Entertainment has joined in a partnership with Oberon Media and Elephant Entertainment to produce interactive multiplatform games based on the bestselling author’s novels, according to the Book Standard. Oberon, a publisher and developer of mass-market casual games, joined this partnership because it is the first significant licensing agreement of a mainstream property in the casual games space.

“Casual games and my novels share a common trait—mass-market accessibility—and so it is with great enthusiasm that we announce this innovative venture,” James Patterson said in a statement. “With interactive entertainment, and casual games in particular, now available on mobile phones, PCs and television screens, this is a superb way to connect with my diverse group of readers, and do so with partners that can reach them anytime, in any format.”
