SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dobango, Inc., a game developer for the social media deal space, today released a Facebook version of its play2Win game.
Dobango's Facebook application expands the arena for the play2Win game suite by taking advantage of the inherent power of social media. Facebook members can play tournaments, challenge their friends, share and post comments. Every game is linked to a prize or discount at local retailers.
"In this tough economic environment, social gaming offers compelling benefits for merchants," said John Flood, vice president of business development at Dobango. "Our Dobango platform lowers the cost for businesses to participate in the deal space. We don't take huge cuts like Groupon. Merchants decide when to run an offer. They're in control. We charge a flat-rate monthly fee."
Dobango launched its 30-second play2Win on its web site in July. Since then, more than 1,600 monthly active users have signed up. The company has added more than 200 retail establishments and restaurants including the Gordon Biersch Brewing Company of San Jose, Calif., and BlueLight Cinemas in Cupertino, Calif.
"It's simple. Everyone wins. And, it's free," Flood said. "Our Facebook app makes it easy for players to win rewards. Every time a player shares with a new member we offer a $1 reward. High scoring players win gift cards, movie tickets and discounts at restaurants."
Dobango company analytics indicate that users have played more than 1,000 times.
The play2Win app currently runs on iPhone, Apple Mac OS, Windows and Facebook. Android and iPad versions are in development. The Facebook application can be found at: http://www.facebook.com/dobango.
