Pocket Change, a universal loyalty currency, announces a partnership today with YoYo Games, a top publisher and the creator of GameMaker: Studio, its cross-platform games development environment. Through the partnership, developers now have the ability to integrate Pocket Change directly through GameMaker: Studio and begin rewarding users for continued game play.
GameMaker: Studio is used by thousands of developers to create games in a single code base and then export and run them natively across mobile platforms and on the Web. Pocket Change is integrated into GameMaker: Studio to provide developers with a quick, hassle-free way to reward users for using their apps. The lightweight Pocket Change SDK is at no cost to developers and rewards are provided by Pocket Change for free.
“The integration of Pocket Change into GameMaker: Studio is a part of our continued commitment to provide developers access to the best tools for creating world-class games,” said Sandy Duncan, CEO, YoYo Games. “Pocket Change gives developers a unique solution to reward users for playing a game, increasing user retention and engagement.”
In addition to making it seamless for developers, Pocket Change is committed to providing the best user experience. Consumers immediately begin earning Pocket Change tokens as they play games or use apps. Pocket Change is a universal currency that travels across apps and it can be redeemed for amazing rewards through the Pocket Change store.
“We are excited to partner with YoYo Games and be a part of GameMaker: Studio, which broadens our goal of driving more value to game developers,” said Ari Mir, CEO and co-founder, Pocket Change. “By rewarding engagement, developers keep users happy - ultimately increasing retention.”
