MySpace Games Give Developers New Tools

MySpace today launched MySpace Games that creates a more social gaming environment with new tools and functionality for users and developers.

MySpace Platform developers are now able to:

*Review application-specific analytics via a new API, including invitation conversions, active users, notification responses and demographics.

*Build games in rich, 3D-like quality with Unity’s powerful 3D engine and allow

*MySpace users to access the games with a new plug-in. For example, Paradise Paintball utilizes this technology.

*Encourage cross-platform competition with Scoreloop, which allows games on different platforms to share the same high scores, achievements, challenges and buddy lists.

*Utilize GroovyCortex, which is a cloud-based solution for onsite application developers, to provide low latency push data for multiplayer games.

*Track the source of application invitations and utilization to learn how users are finding and choosing specific games.
