Game Developer Abandons Industry, Goes Into Mining

Entertainment Games, one of the oldest game-development companies in the Philadelphia region, is leaving town—and the gaming industry. Instead, the company has acquired several mines in northern Mexico, and is moving headquarters to Tuscon as the newly renamed Tamino Minerals. Mining is very different from gaming, unless you play games that involve mining. “We have a great deal of experience in building and managing exploration stage mining companies,” said one of the company’s new directors. “Mexico is supportive of mining, making it a very exciting industry to be in.” Pennsylvania obviously didn’t try special incentives to keep the company here, possibly since the state doesn’t actually have any gold to mine.
