FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 20, 2020 (Boston, MA) — Game studios face an increasingly demanding market in which players expect more frequent updates and real-time interaction with their friends. Beamable was launched earlier this year to help game-makers cost-effectively rise to this challenge while delivering superior revenue to their businesses. Based on the results they’ve experienced, East Side Games is the first publisher to enter into a long-term, multi-game partnership with Beamable.
“Beamable enables live operations for our games with far more capital efficiency than building and maintaining our own Live Games platform,” said Omar Abdelwahed. East Side Games will create the next several games on the Beamable platform, where they expect to use features including content management, live events, and a top-down serverless architecture that’s deeply integrated with Unity 3D.
According to research firm GlobalData, the global video game industry will reach $300 billion by 2025, and most games are transforming into a service business model—or what Beamable calls “Live Games.” Live Games are continuously updated, continuously connected, and continuously monetized.
Although the backend-as-a-service (BaaS) modules to support Live Games are important, Beamable is the first solution that directly addresses the problem of a fractured workflow that plagues most game operations. “We’ve invented a platform that eliminates extraneous programming languages, development environments, technical hand-offs, and process bottlenecks,” said Jon Radoff, CEO of Beamable. “The benefit is that game studios can focus on what they love most: creativity.”
Beamable is available immediately, and game studios can try the platform for free by visiting beamable.com.
Beamable fights for the game makers of the world by helping them turn their game ideas into thriving businesses with a low-code Live Game platform. Beamable enables anyone who builds, updates, and maintains a live game to save time and earn more money. Beamable is based in the Boston area, and led by a team of game-industry and enterprise-technology veterans, and backed by investors including GrandBanks Capital.
