CAMBRIDGE, MA, November 21, 2007– GuildCafe Entertainment Inc., the developer of the GuildCafe.com social gaming platform, announced that it has completed the acquisition of Uberguilds, a network of high-profile gaming communities.
"We began working with Uberguilds earlier this year and became impressed with the enthusiasm of their community," said Jon Radoff, CEO of GuildCafe. "The feedback from their players has been invaluable in improving our social gaming platform—and their participation will help us make our player recruiting, matchmaking and strategy-sharing applications the standard for the gaming world."
Millions of people visit Uberguilds sites, which includes some of the most influential gaming organizations. The Uberguilds Network will form the foundation for the GuildCafe Alliance Program, which will enable independent websites to integrate with GuildCafe’s social gaming platform.
