We are excited to work with Xsolla on Star Supremacy. We wanted to choose a payment solutions company that is truly global.. We are confident in our decision to partner with Xsolla, which truly is a global payment solutions provider. -Thomas Lu, Barbily

Love Space and all things celestial? Xsolla today announced that they are now integrated with Barbily for "Star Supremacy," which was adapted from the singleplayer game "Light of Altair,” the popular Sci-Fi colony-building game based on a custom built 3D engine that enables easy zooming from galaxies all the way to individual moons and asteroids.

Star Supremacy is a browser-based MMO strategy game set in space which contains multiple interaction gameplay and heavy RPG elements. In Star Supremacy, players expand colonies and engage fleet warfare in addition to finding and exploiting unique equipment and high-tech items such as Gauss Targeters and micro-computers which enhance a fleet's ability in combat.

Equipment and items in Star Supremacy are mainly found as rewards from battle, with the highest quality items being found on the highest-risk planets. The higher the level, the better the item (equipment). Players strengthen their leaders and commanders in the game by finding these items.

Xsolla, the global leader in localized in-game payment solutions, was chosen by Barbily to monetize in-game microtransactions through their PayStation tool, a fully-customizable payment solution that is easy to use and easy for gaming publishers like Barbily to integrate; publishers simply copy and paste the code into their website.

Xsolla keeps all of the payment preferences of the players to help make future payments easier. Through PayStation, Xsolla offers tax management and payouts in different currencies.

“We are excited to work with Xsolla on Star Supremacy” stated Thomas Lu of Barbily. “We wanted to choose a payment solutions company that is truly global, helping us to monetize our game all over the world. Star Supremacy is Barbily's focus right now, so we wanted to make sure we chose the best company. We are confident in our decision to partner with Xsolla, which truly is a global payment solutions provider.”

Albert Donahue, Vice President and Co-Founder of Xsolla stated:
“We believe Star Supremacy will be a huge hit for Barbily and we are looking forward to our partnership with them. Online games are growing rapidly in China and we believe that Barbily will continue to come up with more great games in the future.”

“In 2010, the online gaming market in China grew 25% to $5 billion, and it continues to keep growing. Business intelligence and consulting firm Pearl Research forecasts that the online gaming market in China will exceed $8 billion by 2014. Xsolla is looking forward to expanding our presence in China and we believe that the partnership of Xsolla and Barbily will prove successful for both companies.”
