Writers' Group Film Corp. (OTCQB: WRIT) and its wholly-owned subsidiary Amiga Games, Inc. (AGI), a video game publisher of classic games for a wide range of smartphones and mobile devices, announced today that Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) has approved AGI to publish its gaming titles through the Google Play Android marketplace. AGI plans to release its titles to Google Play for the 2013 winter holiday season.

"Android devices make up nearly 75% of the mobile market, and Google Play is the king of Android app stores with over 50 billion downloads," said Eric Mitchell, CEO of Writers' Group Film Corp.

"Android is the fastest growing platform on the planet and we're excited to be in Google's marketplace. These developments will further strengthen our competitive advantage in the gaming marketplace. AGI's classic titles focus on delivering a quality retro-gaming experience for the consumer, so I am very optimistic about our new distribution arrangements."

Over 150 million Android devices were sold in the first quarter of

2013 alone; nearly 20 per second. Google Play is available in over 130 countries, with games accounting for 66% of revenue.

On July 8, 2013 Amiga Games Inc. announced that it had entered into an agreement to be acquired by Writers' Group Film Corp. (OTCQB: WRIT), a Los Angeles-based content distribution company.
