GameSalad, Inc. Key Developments

GameSalad Teams Up with Amazon to Deliver Indie Games on the Kindle Fire

GameSalad announced that it has teamed up with Amazon to provide tools for releasing titles on Kindle Fire tablets. The move is consistent with rumors that Amazon plans to introduce a game console, but it is also something that Amazon must do to drive adoption of its existing Kindle Fire products. GameSalad’s development platform is aimed at both professional and amateur game makers. Those who use the engine do not need to have coding experience to make games with it. That deal means developers who use GameSalad to create their titles can take advantage of the Kindle line’s graphical capabilities, its GameCircle social networking, and Amazon’s in-app purchase service.

GameSalad to Bring Game Creation Tools to Tizen(TM) Mobile Operating System

GameSalad Inc. announced support for Tizen(TM), the emerging open-source mobile operating system. GameSalad's flagship product, GameSalad Creator, has been optimized to take advantage of the Tizen mobile operating system and enables developers to easily publish games to Tizen-based app stores. Developers creating and publishing Tizen games can receive incentives, including free GameSalad Professional Licenses.

Microsoft Corporation Teams Up with GameSalad Inc. to Bring Popular Game Creation Tools to the Windows 8 Platform

GameSalad Inc. reported it is partnering with Microsoft Corporation to bring support for the Windows 8 platform to more than 400,000 GameSalad developers. GameSalad streamlines the process for bringing mobile, web and PC games to market by eliminating the need to code and allowing developers to publish to multiple platforms with the click of a button. As part of the collaboration, GameSalad's product, GameSalad Creator, has been optimized to take advantage of the new Windows 8 operating system and enables developers on both PCs and Macs to easily publish games to the Windows 8 App Store. Through the GameSalad-Microsoft partnership, GameSalad developers will have the opportunity to make their games available on the Windows 8 App Store before Windows 8 general availability. In addition, top GameSalad developers will receive a number of benefits from Microsoft including free licenses for Windows 8, the latest Windows 8 devices, and direct access to Microsoft's senior leadership who will be actively participating in GameSalad's developer forums.
