Other Ocean Interactive, the developer of Super Monkey Ball, has announced it will be creating a specialized iPhone division at its studio in Prince Edward Island, Canada. Other Ocean is one of many company's looking to expand into the burgeoning iPhone games market.

"Our experience working with Apple's SDK has been extremely positive and the iPhone, with its accelerometer, opens up exciting opportunities for game development on this platform," explained Gordon Wood, Other Ocean's technical director and senior programmer. "The iPhone platform has generated a lot of attention and people are excited for the opportunities that lie ahead."

Mr. Wood will head the technical elements of Other Ocean's new iPhone division whilst Chris Sharpley, senior artist on Super Monkey Ball, will lead the division's art and design department.

Other Ocean worked alongside SEGA® of America to develop the Super Monkey Ball game.
