Teatime launches Teatime Live, the world’s first ever face-to-face mobile gaming platform that lets users communicate with fellow players with real time video chat while playing.
The launch is part of the company’s efforts to make mobile gameplay a truly social experience and will allow other games studios to build new games on the platform, ushering in a new era of human interaction in gaming. The first game launching on the platform is Hyperspeed, a fast and furious space racer where players race against their friends while being able to see each other’s reactions in real time.
“Everyone at Teatime is incredibly excited to launch a new way to play mobile games, and we hope to see other games studios building interactive experiences on the platform. Hyperspeed is one example of a game using Teatime Live that we’ve created, but we expect to work with other game studios on many different genres”says Thor Fridriksson, co-founder and CEO of Teatime Games.“Our games are made to emphasise the social aspect of being able to play together. It will allow the players to communicate through shared experience, the way we used to. Technology has the capability to both entertain us and connect us, and we see no reason why it shouldn’t do both.”
