Mensa Game Licensing Deal Announced
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Publisher Empire Interactive recently announced an agreement with American Mensa for the exclusive rights to create and publish video games based on the Mensa license. A similar deal with British Mensa was also announced. The agreement includes rights to console, handheld, PC, and Mac versions of any developed titles.

Mensa is a non-profit organization open to anyone who scores at or above the 98th percentile on a strict, standardized intelligence test. American Mensa has more than 56,000 members in the United States, and more than 110,000 members worldwide.

The deal is the first such agreement Mensa has established with a video game company. No announcement has yet been made about what kind of content will be featured in Empire's upcoming Mensa games, though they will likely involve Mensa-like testing and brain training elements.

"American Mensa is very selective about the companies we partner with, so we are especially pleased to have this new relationship with Empire Interactive," said Dr. John Sheehan, Development Officer of American Mensa. "One of Mensa's primary goals is to foster intelligence, and we are confident that with Empire's unquestioned reputation for excellence, we will move closer to achieving that goal."
