MocoSpace to Launch Mobile Browser-Based Social Games Platform
Leading mobile social networks in the U.S. focuses new app around chat, meeting biggest demand of its 11+ million-member community
Boston, MA June 23, 2010 MocoSpace, one of the largest mobile social networks in the U.S., today announced the launch of a new gaming initiative aimed at developing social games for the mobile web. The MocoSpace Games platform will leverage the companys virtual currency, Moco Gold, and its existing social graph of over 12 million members who are already playing more than 1 million mobile games a month.
Despite having a variety of single-player games already available, MocoSpace Games first title is still under wraps but promises to delight when it debuts in July. The mobile web has yet to deliver on the quality of mobile gaming that is standard for rich media smartphone apps, said MocoSpace CEO Justin Siegel. Our goal with MocoSpace Games is to bring the virality of Facebook games to the mobile web. The mobile web allows us to truly expand the potential of social gaming, with a browser-based smartphone platform that can bring a deeper game experience to the mass market.
For a young, multicultural, on-the-go generation, MocoSpace is the mobile community of choice for making friends, having fun and staying connected. One of the largest and most active mobile web sites in the world, MocoSpace is free and available on any web-enabled mobile phone in the world. Launched in 2005, MocoSpace is backed by General Catalyst and is based in Boston, MA. For more information on the company, visit mocospace.com
