Web gaming platform firm streamlines uploading process for customers

Bigpoint has revealed a new ‘DevLounge’ developer interface for uploading games to its eponymous online platform.

The new interface went live yesterday, August 16, in order to coincide with the beginning of the 2010 GDC Europe. Bigpoint has said that it will make uploading self-developed games possible in “three simple steps”.

The firm has also boasted a revenue increase to the benefit of developers from 30 to 70 per cent. A complete redesign of the service, encompassing revamped user-friendliness, an in-house developer wiki and a new analysis tool has been cited by Bigpoint as the reason for this upturn in profits.

"The redesign of DevLounge reflects our wish to give even more talented game developers the chance to get their games out to a huge gaming community of more than 135 million users," said Bigpoint CMO Lothar Eckstein.
