Mobile multi-player games developer Jadestone has joined forces with leading European social networking platform NetLog.com to launch a range of innovative new games for the online community.
Stockholm-based Jadestone revealed that the new titles would be fully integrated with NetLog.com on a 740-pixel application canvas thanks to the social networking domain’s use of Google OpenSocial API. This will allow players to enjoy an instant gaming experience without the need to create an extra account on Jadestone’s GamArena games platform.
The first new title set to debut on the Belgium-based web community is Scarab Solitaire, an Egypt-themed card game that pits players’ strategy and hand-eye co-ordination against the clock and other members.
“Scarab Solitaire is one of our most popular games and continues to appeal to players regardless of their location,” said Robert Henrysson, Chief Executive Officer for Jadestone.
“NetLog.com is one of the fastest growing social networks in Europe and around the world and is constantly improving the online experience of its young and dynamic community. It is also a place where users can have fun and we’re delighted to be able to enrich their experience.”
As part of the deal, NetLog.com will include a brand page for Jadestone’s GamArena multi-player games platform allowing it to directly interact with fans. In addition, the social networking platform will feature an application page allowing Jadestone to integrate its newest titles with NetLog.com.
“We are very happy to work with Jadestone in making NetLog.com a place where our members can spend even more time having fun,” said Lorenz Bogaert, Chief Executive Officer for NetLog.com.
“Jadestone is a creative company with plenty of experience in social gaming so we’re pleased they can share their games with our users.”
