Definitive Proof Cloud Gaming Works

Kalydo, a leading International Cloud Gaming Platform is proud to publish the first numbers backed proof of Cloud gaming success, achieved by using our cloud technology

-  Conversion Rates increased to 88,5% for one of our select clients.

Working in partnership with GameSamba, an exclusive publisher of online free to play games located in the US, we transformed their flagship title Remnant Knights from an old-model download, install and patch title into a seamless and engaging Kalydo Cloud powered MMORPG. Thanks to the tight integration of our Cloud Technology, GameSamba has re-launched Remnant Knights as a full Cloud Game, requiring only 5 minutes to download the Launcher and reducing total user clicks to just 6.

Most importantly: Conversion rates (User Registration to Play) shot from 40% to 88.5%!

"We no longer service a large downloadable client. Gamers can choose to play from the desktop and the browser, all using Kalydo’s Cloud streaming technology.” Dr. Scott Wong, president and co-founder of GameSamba.

The results have not only delighted GameSamba and Kalydo, but just as importantly their players as well. When asked about their general impressions about Cloud gaming, over 65% responded positively. 41% felt the performance of Remnant Knights compared to other Cloud based games was better, while over 50% of the respondents stated it takes less than 2 minutes now to start playing again after a new patch release. Kalydo believes gamers deserve frictionless experiences, not barriers to play: They deserve more than what they’re getting right now- no matter what or where they play.
