FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Waltham, Mass.—June 5, 2013— BlueSnap today announced that it is powering the eCommerce and payment processing platform for Disruptor Beam, Inc., a game company that brings together fan communities with online games and the development team behind the recently released Game of Thrones Ascent.

“We are thrilled to partner with Disruptor Beam, a fellow Boston-based company and one that is truly innovating within the game industry,”  said Ralph Dangelmaier, CEO of BlueSnap.  “Our product is perfectly suited to serve the needs of many game companies, such as Disruptor Beam, looking for an integrated payment experience and one that avoids disruption of game immersion for players.” 

“BlueSnap allows for a completely integrated checkout experience, including in-game upgrade capabilities that maintain the integrity of the player experience, something we didn’t see from other eCommerce providers,” said Jon Radoff, CEO and Founder of Disruptor Beam.  ”Keeping people engaged and giving our customers a seamless experience is one key to our success, and BlueSnap will help us do just that.”
