Sibblingz is part of the YouWeb family, a social and mobile company incubator that created global brands such as OpenFeint and CrowdStar. Spaceport was developed in order to easily create games that run as a hybrid HTML5– native app solution. The code for the game is written once, in a simple scripting language, then can run on any device. Spaceport enables games to run across multiple devices as efficiently as a native app.
“Spaceport is a revolutionary development in mobile game development,” says Sibblingz founder, Ben Savage.“Most developers have been told they have to wait a year or so for WebGL to build an HTML5 application with the performance of native applications. We offer the same capability to the world now, on every smartphone OS in the world.”
“Once again, a YouWeb company is pioneering new ways to build social games,” says Sibblingz’s Chairman, Peter Relan.“With Sibblingz, developers can now build social games for an addressable market of over a billion users.”
The issue of servers is also addressed through Spaceport. Since all social games require a server and a client, mobile developers need understand the complicated process of setting up, running, and scaling servers. Spaceport runs a server-side solution in the cloud, so developers only need to make one language, for the client and the server. This accelerates game development and reduces hiring requirements for developers.
