Aratog's latest project, Sci-Fi MMORTS, Astro Lords: Oort Cloud was recently launched in English language territories including North America and Europe.

SafeCharge's simple and user-friendly on boarding process enabled the game developer to start accepting payments within 48 hours from submitting the application. The DIY theme builder has been used for customizing the payment page to fit Aratog's brand, while the localization capability enables players to receive payment instructions in a language of their choice as well as payment options suited to their geo-location.
