MSM Corporation (ASX:MSM), which is developing a mobile first, talent discovery competition platform via its Megastar Millionaire product, today announced the appointments of Josh Heenan as executive producer and Eric Cook as director of engineering.

Heenan has over 12 years of experience in the digital gaming industry and six years working with social and mobile platforms. He has worked on major franchises including Call of Duty, Rockband and various Star Wars titles.

Heenan also helped establish Zynga into the Indian market.

Eric Cook has worked on the Facebook game Millionaire City which had two million daily average users and wrote and executed a scalable, re-usable back-end technology that runs DomiNations, a mobile game with 1.5 million daily average downloads.

The pair have both had a stake in DomiNations with Heenan helping to launch and operate the game.

Heenan and Cook were brought into the Megastar Millionaire hub for their significant gaming and mobile experience.

They join seasoned Hollywood producer John Bladecchi, executive chairman Doug Barry who was an angel investor in Pandora and executive director and co-founder Dion Sullivan who has worked with Bank of America, Viacom, Nickelodeon, Shockwave Games and Betfair.

“We are very excited to announce the appointments of Josh and Eric as we focus on the development of Megastar Millionaire,” said Sullivan.

“Both have considerable experience with a wide range of gaming platforms, especially mobile, which will be incredibly valuable to our operations,” he concluded.

Megastar Millionaire plays to the strengths of both Heenan and Cook’s mobile experiences, but the concept is an entirely new one.

Megastar Millionaire connects performers and fans through an interactive, gamification experience that mobilises and individualises the search for new artists.

The platform is designed to monetise the recent attraction of talent-search TV programmes such as ‘X-Factor’, ‘American Idol’ and ‘The Voice’ by embracing online video, online gaming and social media as part of the user experience.

MSM recently raised $7M as part of a reverse takeover of Minerals Corporation.
