TriplePoint client Social Gold gives developers a way to implement a real-world currency system into their virtual games. The system is already employed by thousands of online games and virtual worlds, but Social Gold’s reach expanded even further yesterday, with the company’s announcement of a partnership with GamerSafe.
GamerSafe is a fairly new service (that has a community of over 10,000 game developers and publishers), which allows developers to add premium features to their games in the form of achievements, universally saved games, and even microtransactions. With this partnership, GamerSafe developers will be able to harness the power of Social Gold’s in-Flash payments platform to offer now seamless monetary transactions within games.
“Our platform provides a completely in-Flash payments solution where players have a seamless purchasing experience because they remain in the game during the transaction,” said Vikas Gupta, founder and CEO of Social Gold, via a company press release. “By working directly with GamerSafe, we aim to provide their community of developers and publishers with a payments solution that will increase conversion and generate repeat purchases.”
