The eBay-owned web communications company Skype is introducing a new casual games portal – and is courting developers to provide content.Skype’s Game Channel joins its voice over IP service and follows in the footsteps of casual-orientated pack-in games like those found with Microsoft Messenger.
However Skype and the operator/creator of its games offer, Easybits, have unveiled an aggressive move to secure and encourage content for the channel in the form of the Skype Game Developer Program.
The Skype Game Developer Program provides free SDK and tools while promising third-pary developers access to the almost 200 million registered Skype users worldwide – distribution, DRM and e-commerce is all handled through the Skype software.
