Skiller announced today its real-time platform for mobile games, which enables users to play with each other in real time. "We are going to completely revolutionize the way people play in their mobile phone", said Nir Orpaz, Skiller's CEO.
From a gamer’s perspective, a multiplayer game offers unmatched thrills and a unique social gaming experience. However, from a developer’s perspective, implementing multiplayer support in games throws up several challenges – sophisticated algorithms, backend servers, high performance infrastructure, well-defined protocols, scalable business logic and maintenance.
Skiller has created a real-time mobile multiplayer platform, which enables game developer to easily create sophisticated real-time multiplayer games, without having to worry about all challenges above.
Real-time interactivity is one of the key unique selling point of multiplayer gaming. While it’s manageable to achieve real time interactivity on the computer due to reliable internet connection, it’s a challenging task for developers to build real-time mobile games. Given the complexities involved in developing such real-time logic for mobile games, it’s best for developers to leave such intrinsic details to the Skiller framework and instead focus on their gaming logic. In that context, Skiller is a provider of mobile social gaming platform which enables users to play and interact with each other worldwide. Skiller has opened its platform to 3rd party developers in order to enable them to incorporate real time, multiplayer and social aspects into their games and increase their user engagement and leverage new monetization options.
As for building real time games, Skiller provides comprehensive tutorials for developers on how to create, join, start, play and end real time games. It also lets developers build practice games and publish a real time leaderboard for their game. The Skiller SDK (available as a free download) includes ‘SpeedTap’ – a showcased real time game meant to guide developers on how they can use the SDK and build a real time game.
The best part about Skiller real-time gaming capabilities – it’s completely cross-platform. Therefore, as a developer, you need not re-invent the wheel for every platform if you want to develop your game across all leading mobile platforms. Instead, you focus on your core gaming logic, Skiller takes care of the real-time capabilities for you irrespective of whether you’re building a game on Android, Java or Windows Phone.
Developers can also leverage Skiller platform’s Challenge Mode for single player games to enable a player to challenge another player to beat his score.
