As the enormous popularity of mobile gaming apps continues to grow, Obscene Interactive, the gaming division of OBJ Enterprises (OTCBB: OBJE), is developing an innovative new online development platform to assist independent game makers create, publish and market the next Flappy Bird.
An impossibly simple and maddeningly difficult hit title, Flappy Bird has become a cash cow for indie game developer Dong Nguyen. Before Nguyen removed the game from the Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) App Store and Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) Play Store over the weekend, Flappy Bird accrued 50 million downloads and was earning an average of $50,000 per day. Nguyen has also scored hits with Super Ball Juggling and Shuriken Block, both of which have hovered around the App Store’s top ten downloads.
While the unprecedented success of Flappy Bird has been a landmark achievement for indie game developers, OBJE is working to make such success stories easier to come by. The company is readying a new online platform to make independent game development and distribution easier—and potentially, more profitable—than ever before.
“There’s a market out there of more than 500 million mobile gamers worldwide spending more than $9 billion annually on apps,” said OBJE CEO Paul Watson. “We plan to capture a share of that growing market by helping indie developers to design and deliver gaming apps that will make Flappy Bird look like a passing fad.”
OBJE is already partnering with fledgling gaming studios to release hot new titles for smartphones and tablets. The company earned its first revenues last year by releasing new games including Phantasmic and Bluff Wars 2.0 and Creature Tavern, with many more new releases penciled in for the new year.
Through its gaming division, Obscene Interactive, OBJE is working to deliver innovative and engaging gaming products for the Apple App Store and Google Play market alongside companies such as Glu Mobile Inc. (NASDAQ: GLUU) and The9 Limited (NASDAQ: NCTY).

Recently virtual containers have been gaining in popularity, and for good reason. In the debate between virtual machines and containers, the latter have been seen as the new kid on the block – and like other emerging technology have had some initial shortcomings. However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers ...

For example, the success of Amazon Web Services, Heroku and MongoDB has been driven primarily by individual software developers choosing to use these tools, ra...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
