Google ‘Spaces’ Out in New Partnership

Google is spacing out… sort of. On Friday, Spacetime Studios – an independent game development studio headquartered in Texas – announced a new partnership with Google to introduce the world’s first MMO to launch simultaneously on mobile and desktop platforms.

The mobile MMO Dark Legends is now available exclusively for a two-week period on Google Play for Android devices and on the Chrome Web Store for PC, Mac and Linux.

The commercial launch of Dark Legends across both mobile and desktop simultaneously is another industry first by Spacetime Studios and furthers their goal to create a ubiquitous social gaming experience. The company’s Legends series are the only 3D MMOs in the world that allow people to play the same game together on desktop computers, smart phones and tablets.

“Google Play and the Chrome Web Store allow us to upload and update our online, multiplayer games instantly. Their immediate and unified environment fits perfectly with Spacetime’s ability to push global content to our suite of games on-the-fly across mobile and desktop,” said Gary Gattis, CEO of Spacetime Studios. “We’re both at the forefront of creating cross-platform gameplay that connects players in a much deeper online experience, anywhere and on any device.”

So does Google have more interest in mobile games than we presently realize? Only time will tell.
