SAN FRANCISCO, March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Game Developers Conference -- Star Arcade, developers of the most advanced technology platform for implementing cross platform multiplayer social games across any smartphone operating system or Facebook, today announced that it has enhanced its technology with chat and virtual goods across all games.
Chat and virtual goods are among the most common social game features, but implementing them across every screen size, device OS, processor specification and carrier network has been a huge barrier to offering a uniform gaming experience. Star Arcade's technology platform resolves these technical barriers to allow true cross-platform game play.
"Any game developer or publisher understands the difficulty in coding for a variety of screens, chip sets, network requirements and other differences. We've solved those problems once and for all with our Star Arcade technology platform," said Harri Myllyla, CEO of Star Arcade. "We've built all of our in-house games to prove out our technology, and I invite developers and publishers to play them and see for themselves how seamless our game play experience is across devices, and how crisp our head-to-head play works between opponents living in 180 different countries where our games are available."
In addition to real-time chat and virtual goods, Star Arcade's platform also includes ad serving, premium levels and payments, loyalty programs, freemium/premium and advertiser-funded business models, and a global Lobby where players find opponents from all over the world.
