PopCap’s Bejeweled Executive Producer Leaves for Indie-Focused Studio
Add one more name to that list of ex-EA folks now at mobile indie game publisher Tilting Point: Giordano “Gio” Contestabile, who until recently supervised the Bejeweled franchise at EA subsidiary PopCap Games. Contestabile joined PopCap in 2007, right before free-to-play games went wild on mobile. Before producing the hit puzzle series Bejeweled, he managed the business end of PopCap’s mobile games, including Plants vs. Zombies. As Tilting Point’s new VP of product management and revenue, Contestabile joins fellow EA vets Tom Frisina, Dan Sherman, Steve Coallier and Jim Hsu.
