“The development of a global OTT platform requires the combination of a strong technical foundation, the content relationships to populate the system, and the distribution partners to bring the platform into millions of homes,” said Jason Williams, Shoal Games CEO. “At Shoal Games we are fulfilling these requirements and preparing to launch a harmonized Rooplay OTT platform on Apple, Android, Web, and TV shortly. We have secured more than 600,000 downloads of Rooplay Android which has allowed us to test a wide range of features, prices, and offerings. During our tests, we have refined the Rooplay brand position, launched more than 30 Rooplay Original exclusive games, grown our subscriber lifetime value, and reduced our cost of securing new subscribers. The improvements that we’ve completed to Rooplay since its initial launch have put the system on the path to becoming a leading games platform for the market of 1.9 billion kids globally. Rooplay’s mix of hundreds of curated educational and entertainment games is unique in the market and we continue to erect competitive barriers to entry with our innovative Shoal.js content production toolset.”
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.”
