Brass Monkey Press Release
BOSTON, MA- Brass Monkey, the company that allows iOS and Android device users to play games in a browser using their device as a controller, announced today that they have implemented their first online multiplayer game, Tank vs. Alien Online.
Previously, Brass Monkey’s games were available for local multiplayer, but the release of the networked multiplayer game signals a shift in strategy for the company.
“People love to play online from the comfort of their homes,” said CEO Chris Allen, “and we want to give players the best experience available. This also opens up opportunities for developers that want to create networked games for players that want a console experience without buying a console system.”
Brass Monkey is working on creating this type of experience in public spaces, additionally, with an initiative called “Monkey Bars”. The program will bring the game system into bars, restaurants, and retail locations, where patrons will be able to connect with smart devices and play locally or online. The pilot program is expected to launch at Tech Superpowers Patriot Place location in late spring, expanding to other cities soon.
Finally, Brass Monkey announced a drawing for an iPad2, sponsored in part by Tech Superpowers, that features their new online multiplayer game. Players with a profile that achieve a rank of 3 by May 30 th will automatically be entered into the drawing. Contest details are available here.
