Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 13, 2011
Zipline Games today announced a new partnership with Tapjoy, a leading independent mobile applications network, and the addition of Tapjoy’s in-app advertising and monetization services into its Moai game development platform. Billed as the mobile platform for pro game developers, the Moai platform differentiates itself through its cloud based game services and rapid development of iOS and Android titles, all built in the industry standard Lua scripting language. Tapjoy’s marketplace, featured app, banner ad and other ad products are now all available through the Moai platform. Moai game developers can easily create Tapjoy accounts and use Tapjoy revenue services in their iOS and Android games with a few lines of Lua.
“Tapjoy rocks. Nearly all top-grossing mobile game titles use it, so Tapjoy was an obvious first partnership for our Moai platform,” said Todd Hooper, CEO of Zipline Games. “With Tapjoy integration, developers using Moai will have higher revenue, which translates to more successful games, more successful mobile game studios and ultimately a higher quality play experience for consumers.”
“With its rapid development of modern, service-backed mobile games and an open environment that puts game developers first, Zipline Games’ Moai platform is a positive force for the industry, and Tapjoy is thrilled to support Moai developers in building revenue and distribution while enhancing their player experience,” added Mihir Shah, CEO of Tapjoy.
