ANGUILLA, B.W.I., August 2, 2018 – Shoal Games Ltd. (TSXV: SGW) (OTCQB: SGLDF) (“the Company”), mobile software developer, publisher, and owner of Rooplay, the EdTech games platform (http://www.rooplay.com), announced today that it has created a new game development tool, Shoal.js, to enable any content creator to easily add games built in Unity onto Rooplay. Shoal Games built Shoal.js as part of their own game development system and is now engaging with leading game developers to adopt the tool and launch their content onto Rooplay.
“In the current environment, most games are published only as individual apps and not on the web in HTML5 or on the Rooplay system,” commented Jason Williams, Shoal Games CEO. “Game developers can be constrained from publishing in HTML5 efficiently due to the game development engine they have used in developing their products. Shoal.js releases developers from these constraints. Once developers adopt Shoal.js, they are able to port existing content from the app store to HTML5 and launch games on Rooplay, thereby expanding their distribution. The Shoal.js tool creates an innovative content pipeline exclusive to Shoal Games and Rooplay.”
