BURLINGAME, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/09 -- Aurora Feint Inc., developer of the most popular social gaming platform and network for the iPhone, announced OpenFeint Gold, a recognition program for the developers of extraordinarily high quality games that use OpenFeint. OpenFeint Gold titles will be extensively promoted by Aurora Feint Inc. on openfeint.com, on the openfeint dashboard in other games and on partner websites.
"I am personally very excited to bring this program to our game development community," said Jason Citron, Founder and CEO, of Aurora Feint. "When we launched Aurora Feint: The Beginning, on July 11 last year, I was delighted to get recognition from all over including game of the year on the iPhone and this is our way of recognizing other incredible quality games."
OpenFeint provides a complete social gaming experience for iPhone games with leaderboards, achievements, profiles, social discovery of content, friending, invites, facebook connect integration with photo import and status updates, twitter integration and social challenges and notifications. Adding OpenFeint to a title has been endorsed by the development community as a "30-minute" exercise, at no cost to developers and no server operations. Almost 300 titles are live in the AppStore with more than 700 games in development using OpenFeint, including megahits like Pocket God, Digital Chocolate's RollerCoaster Rush and Stick Wars.
"Subatomic Studios is proud to have Fieldrunners recognized as the very first OpenFeint Gold title. Since our launch, we've worked hard to create extra content for the iPhone and bring the game to many other platforms, including the PSP and DSi. We're excited to be once again refreshing the iPhone-hit with more platform-specific features and content. The new and improved Fieldrunners marches onto App Stores worldwide this holiday season," said Ash Monif, COO Subatomic Studios.
OpenFeint Pricing and Availability
OpenFeint 2.3 is available immediately for download at www.openfeint.com.
