If the entire gaming industry is a testosterone-packed game of economic dodge ball, Majesco’s the tiny circle of girls that stands in the middle of the field chatting, obviously above the barbaric spectacle surrounding them. Why? Because, in this Harsh Economic Climate, Majesco’s managed to somehow post a 75.8 percent jump in net revenues and a 54 percent income boost.

“Our success was driven by strong demand across our product line, specifically for our Cooking Mama titles and the newly released Jillian Michaels’ Fitness Ultimatum 2009, which has become a hit with approximately 500,000 copies sold to date,” said CEO Jesse Sutton.

“We are well positioned to capitalize on the increasing demand for family friendly mass market games, the fastest growing segment of the industry, which in part is being driven by the success of Nintendo’s platforms.”

Fitness instructors and adorable Japanese women. Riveting.
