Two leading companies in the highly factionalised social games space have negotiated a surprise partnership.
Bigpoint, which hires over 800 people and is considered one of the world’s five leading online games firms, will port selected games to a rival service hosted by the Netherlands-based Spil Games.
Spil Games is thought to hold the largest online games website network, with more than 130 million unique monthly visitors. Bigpoint will seek to take advantage of that huge player network by porting a number of titles across, starting in July with ZooMumba.
The move is seen a coup for Spil Games – a high-profile validation of its lucrative network – but also opens up a mass of new players to Bigpoint’s own products.
