With the recent release of Farmville for mobile platforms, social games are tentatively arriving on the mobile scene, but so far there hasn’t been a cohesive social gaming platform available for smartphones. MocoSpace is hoping to change that by launching a mobile social gaming platform called MocoSpace Games.
According to Social Times, MocoSpace currently has 12 million members playing over 1 million mobile games a month. The company should not have a difficult time attracting developers to its new platform, especially since MocoSpace is one of the largest mobile social networks already. The platform will be opened to third party game developers and MocoSpace intends to continue releasing self-created titles.
Says MocoSpace CEO Justin Siegel, “Our goal with MocoSpace Games is to bring the virality of Facebook games to the mobile web. The mobile web allows us to truly expand the potential of social gaming, with a browser-based smartphone platform that can bring a deeper game experience to the mass market.” For more details, check out the MocoSpace website.
