Mobile social gaming platform also signs its first operator deal.
Mobile social gaming platform Scoreloop says it's now adding more than 100,000 users a day, thanks to its expansion to Android.
Meanwhile, the company has signed its first deal to provide a connected gaming community for an operator - Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom.
Scoreloop is working with Chunghwa subsidiary Spring House Entertainment to provide a customised version of its Scoreloop SDK to developers making games for the operator's service.
Already on board are developers Dreamsky Technology, Boolba Labs and Goodteam Studio. Scoreloop will also create a dedicated app to showcase these companies' games to players.
"The model with Spring House is a blueprint for other operators," says CEO Marc Gumpinger. "Our cross platform approach allows users to interact with all of their friends, regardless of device and operating system."
Targeting operators is an interesting move for Scoreloop, as it diversifies further beyond its origins as an iPhone gaming community.
Interestingly, the strategy follows that of the early mobile multiplayer gaming platforms - Exit Games, Terraplay and Ex Machina - who several years ago saw operators as their main customers.
It didn't quite pay off then, but Scoreloop clearly thinks the strategy is due a comeback in 2010.
