CiiNOW, Inc., a leader in Cloud Gaming technology and branded gaming platforms, today announced an agreement with Plug In Digital, an aggregator and distributor of digital interactive entertainment, to add their full games offering to CiiNOW’s robust content catalogue. Under the terms of the agreement, titles such as, WRC FIA World Rally Championship 4, MotoGP™ 2013, Puddle, and Hunter’s Trophy 2 – Europa will be offered by CiiNOW to its global network of service provider and cable operator partners building a branded Cloud Gaming service. The signed agreement with Plug In Digital demonstrates CiiNOW’s ongoing support of the indie community of game publishers and developers and CiiNOW’s commitment to enabling a quick and easy way to onboard great indie content on a Cloud Gaming platform. In a related move, the company also announced the launch of a new program accessible through http://www.ciinow.com/indie inviting indie publishers to submit their games for immediate review, and encourages all interested parties to apply.
“Our business partners are constantly looking to offer the most engaging and in-demand games based on their customers’ unique demographics,” said Ron Haberman, CEO and Co-Founder of CiiNOW, Inc. “Not only are Plug In Digital’s titles consistently on that list, but they are a great example of the success of our beta indie program. We are excited about the quality and type of games which have been onboarded, the pipeline of highly anticipated titles to come, and are thrilled Plug In Digital selected us as one of their Cloud Gaming partners.”
“On a regular basis, we explore and support innovative technologies that enable gamers to enjoy their favorite titles on whatever device on which they chose to play,” said Francis Ingrand, CEO of Plug In Digital. "With CiiNOW’s ease of onboarding and seamless delivery of gameplay, we believe we have a winning synergy to offer the best service and product to our gaming customers.”
By partnering with CiiNOW and leveraging the company’s cloud-based technology, Plug In Digital’s games will be delivered to virtually any device with a screen, enabling game enthusiasts to enjoy the games instantly, without waiting for downloads or software installations. Key to the selection of CiiNOW as a Plug In Digital Cloud Gaming technology partner was the company’s proven conquest over latency during gameplay. With CiiNOW’s proprietary technology, Cumulus, the latency experienced playing games is significantly less than that of consoles and other Cloud Gaming services.
