Jam City is expanding its mobile game horizons by acquiring the assets of Brainz, a Bogota, Colombia-based mobile game developer and maker of the upcoming action strategy game, World War Doh.

Brainz’s creative team has joined Los Angeles-based Jam City and will continue to carry out the development of World War Doh.

Jam City has been on an expansion beyond its core casual titles such as Cookie Jam.

It is working on an Harry Potter game, and it recently hired Sims pioneer Rod Humble to run its TinyCo studio in San Francisco.

The highly anticipated World War Doh title was awarded Apple’s “Best of 2017” in the Tech and Innovation category in Latin America, as well as the “Best In Show: Audience Choice” award at the 2017 Casual Connect USA conference.

Jam City will launch World War Doh worldwide in late 2018.

Developer Jam City gave us a first look at Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery’s gameplay.

The game lets you create a Hogwarts student and learn spells, potions, and more.

In preparation of the game’s upcoming release, developer Jam City gave us a first look at what to expect in terms of gameplay.

The game puts you in the shoes of a prospective Hogwarts student, who gets a letter guaranteeing admittance into the magical school.

You partake in the Sorting Hat festivities and can join any of the school’s four houses: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff.

Since Hogwarts is primarily a school, a good chunk of your time will be spent learning spells and potions.

In the first step of what could be an endless exploration of the wizarding world of Harry Potter, the Los Angeles mobile games studio Jam City is releasing its Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery game on the App Store and Google Play.

Developed in partnership with Warner Bros., the game will launch under Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s Portkey Games — a label dedicated to creating first-person gaming experiences for mobile devices and consoles based on J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.

No one could accuse me of being a gamer, but as a fan of both the books and the movies, I was intrigued by the prospect that the Hogwarts Mystery game presents.

The animation (from the demo I’d seen) is well done and the plot was compelling.

Set in the 1980s, the game follows the player as they develop a character, enroll in Hogwarts, select one of the school’s four houses and begin to navigate the world of Hogwarts.

Players can create personalized characters and customize their avatars by learning magical skills and developing relationships with other students.

Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment, Portkey Games and Jam City have released the first look at upcoming RPG Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery and announced that the Android and iOS mobile game will launch this spring.

The game, which is not to be confused with Pokémon Go developer Niantic's upcoming augmented reality Potter game for mobiles, casts players as new students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

In the trailer we see in-game footage of players choosing their house (Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin) engage with other students, learn spells and concoct potions.

Adventuring elements and combat are also glimpsed, as well as interactions with familiar Hogwarts teachers such as Dumbledore, Professor Snape and Professor McGonagall.

Android users can pre-register to download the game on Google Play.

App Store users will have to wait a little longer.
