While the managed service (Neutron) provides a broad variety of connectivity features out-of-the-box as well as world-class hosting services, Photon is the perfect product to enable game developers to integrate sophisticated online features at minimum cost investment.
“We are very happy to be the first company offering online game engines for the iPad,” said Chris Wegmann, CTO of Exit Games.“The iPad opens a fascinating new product genre and we are sure it provides the same opportunities for developers as the iPhone did and still does.
