has just joined Research In Motion to bring their expertise in creating social and collaborative gaming toolkits for mobile developers to the BlackBerry platform. Scoreloop is a pioneer in mobile social gaming and offers a customizable and cross-platform social mobile gaming developer tool kit. One has to wonder if RIM has plans to go cross platform in some way with this new acquisition?
Tyler Lessard, VP Global Alliances & Developer Relations at RIM, announces:
We have recently enabled our developers to create social app experiences through our BBM™ Social Platform
and have seen some very innovative applications result from that. We look forward to working with the team at Scoreloop to provide tools that will further enable our developer community to take gaming to a new level of social integration on the BlackBerry platform. Stay tuned to the Inside BlackBerry Developer’s Blog and our @BlackBerryDev Twitter account
for further updates on Scoreloop and the BlackBerry platform.
