Social mobile gaming content and platform provider GREE has announced partnerships with four North American indie game developers: Enders Fund, Fifth Column, FreezeTag and Vancouver-based Fathom Interactive. The partnerships illustrate GREE’s continued commitment to supporting the indie developer community and growing the worldwide mobile games market. With several game launches on GREE Platform, including HotHead’s Zombie Ace which reached Top 25 on the charts, GREE Platform has already seen steady North American growth.
“We’re very focused on working with indie talent here at GREE and we’re committed to helping these guys succeed,” says Eros Resmini, SVP of Developer Relations and Marketing, GREE International, Inc. “We know each of these guys is different. Some need the technology and some want to leverage our know-how – we’re happy to help them however we can.”
GREE Platform allows independent developers to leverage GREE’s extensive experience in social and free-to-play, while accessing the global market. In addition to offering a robust toolset and expertise, GREE ensures indies are set up for success by providing them with various resources including developer meetups and educational videos through the Developer Center. GREE is fully committed to supporting indie developers through their launch process, and will continue to make service improvements based on the needs of the developer.
“As a small, indie developer, we face significant challenges in today’s highly competitive social mobile gaming market. Working with the GREE team allows us to focus on making a great game and getting it out to the right players, while maintaining full ownership of the title,” says, Andrew Marsh, CEO of Fifth Column Games, Inc. “We are impressed by GREE’s successes in this industry and how quickly they have been able to establish themselves as a worldwide leader. We look forward to working with GREE Platform to make our games an international success.”
