Yamake has broken cover, in the latest N-Gage press release. A 'game creating game,' players are able to pick and mix their own games from a range of mini-games, add in their own skins, themes, text, sound clips and movies from their PC. These can then be uploaded and shared with the rest of the Yamake community.
Nokia also say that Yamake games will be able to sent to other players by MMS, and that these will be compatible with N-Gage and other S60 devices - which makes sense if you want to create a viral gaming community, you want to hit as many players as possible. But isn't that what the N-Gage brand is for?
There's no sign of it yet in the N-Gage First Access client, nor on the main N-Gage website, but we'll keep an eye out for this and let you know when anything pops up.
