New York, New York (PRWEB) August 25, 2009
OMGPOP, a leading online social multiplayer gaming site, announces Hit Machine, a new multiplayer music game. In the tradition of playing along with your favorite tracks, Hit Machine brings the console music gaming concept online, multiplayer, and free. With the ability to play live against six other people competing at multiple difficulties, it makes music gaming truly a social experience accessible from any computer anytime.
"We have licensed over 50 songs from some of the coolest and most visionary bands and labels for this game," stated Dan Porter, CEO for OMGPOP. "We have really focused on a wide variety of musical genres that appeal to the incredibly diverse tastes of today's youth. With tracks ranging from Indie to Electronic to Rock, the game is designed not just to rest on old classics but to allow people to explore tons of new music as well."
While OMGPOP might be the underdog in the music game space and is releasing the game in the shadow of a multi million dollar Beatles advertising blitz, it does bring its unique skills in engaging multiplayer gaming and its millions of members, which should help the game build and spread awareness. The game is available at http://www.omgpop.com as well as numerous game sites. OMGPOP currently generates over a million gameplays daily on its own site.
The music game is free to play, however the company is also in discussion with multiple artists to add downloadable paid tracks.
OMGPOP, formerly known as iminlikewithyou, is a platform for real time social gaming. The viral gaming site has grown to over a million daily game plays since the launch of its first game 18 months ago and was recently named as one of Time's "50 Best Websites of 2009." The OMGPOP platform allows users to easily play games against their friends or other community members. The community consists mostly of teens and college kids, aged 15 to 25, with a 50/50 gender split. Average users log in 100 times a month to play games such as Balloono, Draw My Thing, Ballracer, and Letterblox.
OMGPOP is funded by Spark Capital, Bessemer Venture Partners, Baseline Ventures and Betaworks, as well as angel investors including Ron Conway, Kevin Rose and Marc Andreessen. OMGPOP is a place for people to play free multiplayer games and meet each other. For more information, please visit OMGPOP.
