The IME – Interactive Media and Entertainment GmbH is a licensing agency, co-publisher and consulting firm for the Online and Mobile Games industry based in Hamburg, Germany. Originally founded in 2006 by professionals from the gaming industry, television and other media with a strong background in marketing and economics as a research institute at Private University BiTS and headed by Patrick Streppel, former CxO of German games publisher gamigo AG, the IME took its business "to the next level" in 2013.
In the following year IME helped Funatics Software to start self-publishing with "Cultures Online" and Sproing to take over the operation of "Asterix & Friends", both of which were subsequently sub-licensed to other territories via IME. Further out-licensing deals included "Aerena" from Cliffhanger Productions, "Fiesta Online" from OnsOn Soft as well as several deals on behalf of gamigo AG. IME also consulted Deutsche Telekom AG on their gaming activities. 2015 saw further exciting projects, growing IME's headcount to nearly 20 staff.
