OBJE to Offer Developers Marketing Tools to Succeed in $9 Billion Gaming App Market
SARASOTA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- With industry tracker 148Apps.biz reporting that 138 gaming apps are submitted to the Apple (NAS: AAPL) App Store every day, OBJ Enterprises (OTCBB: OBJE) is working to build a new platform to give developers the exposure they need to stand out in a highly competitive marketplace.
Last week, the company announced that its plan to develop an innovative new crowdsourcing platform to help independent game makers build, publish and market the next wave of fun and exciting mobile apps for a growing market of more than 500 million gamers worldwide. Reaching those gamers is no easy task, which is why OBJE plans to offer developers a suite of effective marketing tools many times more affordable than spending 30-50 percent of their revenue on advertising.
"Customer outreach is crucial to success in the mobile gaming space," said OBJE CEO Paul Watson. "We're designing a platform that will allow developers to kick-start viral marketing campaigns for their games using social networks compiled by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, forums and others to actively engage with users effortlessly and affordably. The goal is drive quality word-of-mouth referrals, not simply promote their products with costly traditional advertising."
OBJE is already hard at work accomplishing that goal. The company's gaming subsidiary, Obscene Interactive, recently signed a letter of intent and is now moving towards a funding arrangement to help market and develop Bluff Wars, a hysterical social game created by Texas-based indie developers FangTooth Studios. OBJE also recently submitted Phantasmic—the first game developed through its joint venture brand Novalon Games—to the App Store, with an Android version of the app set to follow.
Obscene Interactive is a division of OBJ Enterprises, Inc. that is working to develop innovative gaming products for the Apple App Store and Google (NAS: GOOG) Play platforms alongside companies such as Glu Mobile Inc. (NAS: GLUU) and The9 Limited (NAS: NCTY) .
