TEEPEE GAMES LAUNCHES FACEBOOK APPLICATION
London, UK – 13 th June 2011 – TeePee Games, the rapidly growing discovery platform for social, smartphone and online Flash games, is pleased to announce the launch of its official Facebook application. The TeePee Games Facebook app is completely free to use and can be found at http://apps.facebook.com/teepeegames.
The new app allows Facebook users to access TeePee Games from directly within the social network, bringing games discovery to more people than ever before. Just like the portal www.teepeegames.com, TeePee Games’ Facebook app utilises the innovative discovery engine Geronimo to provide each user with personalised content recommendations, allowing them to find and play the games most pertinent to their interests. TeePee Games currently has more than 350 titles in its catalogue of Facebook games and already has agreements in place with some of the largest social game developers in the sector, including Playdom, Wooga, Digital Chocolate and Hit Point Studios, to name a few.
One of the most exciting aspects of the TeePee Games Facebook app is that it allows players to see exactly what games their friends have been, and are currently, playing – it’s the only application on the platform that lets users view this information. The app also has an invitation feature so that players can invite their friends to join any game they’ve discovered.
Tony Pearce, CEO at TeePee Games comments, “We’re thrilled to see the launch of our Facebook application as it supports our continuing objective of bringing games discovery to the masses. At TeePee Games we want to make the process of discovering high quality digital games as simple as possible, for as many people as we can.” He adds, “Facebook attracts more than 500 million active daily users, with 56 million of those individuals playing games on the platform every day, so developing an application for it was the ideal way for us to expand.”
He goes on to say, “With so many games available on the Facebook platform a lot of users are discontentedly spending hours wading through titles they’re not interested in playing or going back to the same select few games. Facebook is in need of something that will shake things up – an app that can index games and promote each one to its target audience and this is where TeePee Games comes in to play.”
TeePee Games is set to become the primary destination to find and play games across social networks, smart phones and the web. Powered by the discovery engine Geronimo, the platform allows consumers to find, filter and store games from a multitude of sources such as Facebook, Flash game portals and Android handsets. It’s been designed with a number of social features to encourage consumers to use the discovery platform as part of their daily online activities – a community element aids social interaction, while rewards and loyalty points have been implemented to incentivise game play.
Individuals interested in trying out the games discovery portal are invited to sign up online at www.teepeegames.com. TeePee Games currently features more than 350 Facebook, 2,500 Flash and 100 Android games. Developers and publishers interested in getting their games featured on the TeePee Games can direct their requests to Darren Newnham.
