Social gaming network to release new dev tool Social Space

Beijing-based PapayaMobile has surpassed 50 million users for its social gaming network, it has revealed.

The company claims to have grown its userbase by 260 per cent over the last nine months.

Papaya has also announced plans to launch a new development tool called Social Splash.

The tool aims to enable Facebook and Google+ developers to port Flash or HTML5 games onto Android “without having to learn a new coding language”.

Games converted through Social Splash will also have access to social features such as newsfeeeds, notifications, leaderboards and friend lists, whilst developers can also use Papaya’s virtual currency and billing system.

“This tool is for every developer that has felt abandoned by Adobe and crowded out by Zynga,” said PapayaMobile CEO Si Shen.

“We believe in helping HTML5 and Flash developers make the transition to mobile a seamless experience. Not only does this new tool decrease development time, but it also allows developers to launch their entire games catalog onto mobile without having to learn a new coding language.”
