Last year we partnered up with the folks at Overwolf to bring you a MMORPG.com branded version of the in-game overlay client they were developing. We hope you've enjoyed using the client so far! Today, we'd like to update you on some interesting news for the client.
First, we'd like to congratulate Overwolf on passing the one million user mark. It's a pretty awesome milestone. But what may be of real interest to you folks using the client is today's launch of a new Overwolf in-game app store.
The app store will support both user created and third party apps:
Game publishers can add all of these functions to their games without touching a single line of game code, making integration fast and easy. Besides embedding Overwolf’s social media features, using the Overwolf SDK, they will also be able to offer their players the opportunity to develop in-game apps that meet the needs of the community. Many game companies spend a significant amount of resources to enable user generated content or add-ons for their games. Now, every game publisher can do that by simply partnering with Overwolf and conserving development resources.
“The past year has been wonderful for Overwolf. We’ve continued to build the product focusing on user feedback and usage analytics. This has allowed us to sign agreements with more than twenty publishers, and most importantly, receive awesome feedback from the gamers that are using our product,” said Uri Marchand, CEO of Overwolf. “The next challenge for us is to allow gamers to utilize our technology to develop in-game apps, and publish those apps in our In-Game Appstore for the benefit of the gaming community”
