UK-based Remode Studios becomes first partner, debut title to release in July

 

Social games company Sulake has launched a new Habbo social hub for third party developers to release their games, it has revealed.

The first studio to join the program is UK-based independent developer Remode Studios, which has worked on iOS games such as Magic Muddle and My Star.

The company's first title for the platform will be released in July.

The program has been designed to expand Habbo Hotel studio Sulake’s offerings to its customer base, which currently stands at more than ten million users a month.

“As a company with a proven track record in social and mobile games that also understands the needs and wants of the teen market, we couldn’t be happier to make Remode our inaugural development partner,” said Sulake CEO Paul LaFontaine.

“We are opening up our environment so that independent developers looking to reach a teen audience can benefit from our expertise with that age group, while our loyal user base will be enriched by the creative collective that only a worldwide team of game developers can bring to Habbo.”

Remode Studios managing director Ella Romanos added: “It is a tremendous honour to be named Sulake’s inaugural development partner as it will give us a unique opportunity to showcase our technology and gaming expertise to tens of millions teenagers worldwide.”
