There are some interesting facts about Trip Hawkins, head of Digital Chocolate, that you can read in this interview:

Quote:
Trip Hawkins, Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences Hall of Famer and head of San Mateo Based Digital Chocolate, recently sat down with us to chat about the video game leader’s foray into the world of smartphones and all things iPhone. Once primarily focused on dedicated gamers in other segments of the market the gaming gurus focus has gradually changed over the past few years.
Hawkins has an almost unheard of resume in the gaming community. His professional experience includes among many things time as an executive at Apple, founding game publisher at Electronic Arts, being a console maker and a mobile publisher. His unique background and experience make him both an insightful and highly respected industry veteran to comment on the smartphone and iPhone platform. Hawkins candidly offers his opinion on the future of the iPhone platform, the climate for developers and DChoc’s plan to jump in on the action.

Good news. Digital Chocolate is a pretty good developer. I've played a lot of their games on my old phone.

Those games look terrific. I hope the chocolate one will have the same content, I think that could easily be translated to the iPhone.

Just a gal who likes to write and has an unhealthy(probably) attachment to her iPod.

Top 6 favorite games right now: {Rogue Touch, Sway, Pocket God, Archibald's Adventure, Wolfenstein 3D, Platypus}

Trip Hawkins... He is late to the party and he's been wrong about a lot of things.

But DChoc's games are pretty cool and i'm pretty sure Mr Hawkins didnt' made any of them himself.

Yay! I'll be downloading the free Chocolate Shop one now. Looks quite a bit like Diner Dash.

I can't view the penguin one... the App Store's being a jerk. :l
