ViximoOn March 1st, MBBP client Viximo, Inc. announced the launch of their new Social Zone platform which helps make mobile apps more social. In an article on VentureBeat, the author describes Social Zone as a platform that lets “publishers publish games to multiple channels and send messages across those channels. It can create a real-time presence solution and cross-promote games across the whole network. Developers using it should be able to attract more players, make their games more social, and drive higher revenue, without letting someone else get between their brand and the customer.” Dale Strang, chief executive of Viximo, helps to explain his company’s new interface:

The other networks were made for downloadable games. Ours is made for the freemium world. They have leaderboards and achievements. They’re monolithic platforms. Ours is designed to be purely social. You can add more features and customize it. The options for social mechanics are in the hands of developers.

ViximoOn June 9th, MBBP client Viximo, Inc. announced the launch of a social game platform that will aid in expending gaming to smaller social networks. This platform will allow game developers to integrate their games to Viximo’s social networking partners which include IGG, Playtaki, Frosmo, Synapse Games and Mob Science. Viximo President and CEO, Dale Strang discusses the platform in a recent blog posting.

Social game developers see both need and opportunity to expand beyond one dominant community, but until now it has been difficult and costly for them to manage their own distribution and integration across multiple communities. Viximo’s solution seamlessly integrates social games across our network of communities, enabling game developers to quickly and easily expand onto more sites while providing our social networking partners with content that drives revenue and user engagement.
