gPotato Announces Partnership with Bigpoint

Sunnyvale, Calif.  January 24 – The gPotato Game Portal became fully multi-platform with the addition of six top browser games from leading developer Bigpoint. Players of gPotato can now enjoy strategy and action MMOs right in their browsers and explore the worlds of Battlestar Galactica Online, Farmerama, and more! The partnership brings new opportunities for both companies to reach a different market.

“We’re excited to partner with Bigpoint, a strong developer who shares our commitment to the free-to-play business model,” said Kenny Yan, Director of Operations at gPotato. “With this collaboration we have successfully increased our portfolio’s genre support, and more importantly, we have become a multi-platform gaming destination for our community thanks to Bigpoint’s quality browser games.” 

”Key partnerships with leading game portals are vital to our continued global growth,” said Ed Kim, Director of Business Development at Bigpoint Inc. “With gPotato, we have found a great partner and are confident they will generate positive results that further bolster our community of players.”

To welcome the new browser games, gPotato will be giving away $900 worth of prizes to its players. Ten lucky Facebook fans will receive $50 worth of gPotato currency, which can be redeemed in any game on the portal, for explaining which browser game is their favorite. Five more players will win either a SUMO beanbag or a Razer mouse for editing a picture of the gPotato mascot into a screenshot from one of the browser games. More details can be found at the official rules.

The gPotato Game Portal has added many new games and features in recent months and is excited to create even more enjoyment for its community with Bigpoint as a partner. Every game on gPotato is always free-to-play, and the addition of great games from a like-minded partner brings rich new variety to the portal’s 11 million users.
