Odobo, the Developer Program and Marketplace for real-money gaming, announces a new agreement with development studio Vermantia.
The addition of Vermantia to the Odobo Developer Program is representative of the high-calibre studios that Odobo continues to bring on board. The agreement begins with the development of five initial titles, including the already publicisedCandylicious.
Vermantia, based in Athens, is a well-established name in real-money and social gaming spaces whose expertise includes supplying content to state lotteries, retail and online operators. With over 150 employees, Vermantia is well placed to deliver innovative and creative games content underpinned by many years of industry knowledge and experience.
Vasilis Zoupas, Senior Product Manager of Virtual & Instant Games said, “We’re delighted to be in a position to bring our extensive portfolio to some of the leading gaming operators through the Odobo platform. This is a fantastic opportunity to work with innovative partners offering a unique proposition.”
Odobo founder and CEO, Ashley Lang, said, “We’re proud to announce our agreement with Vermantia. Vermantia brings both prestige and experience to the Odobo Marketplace. With a great portfolio and understanding of real-money gaming, we’re looking forward to supporting the delivery of their outstanding games.”
Odobo has developed and deployed the industry’s first HTML5 Marketplace and Developer Program for the real-money gaming industry. The result is a modern, fully-distributed and cloud-enabled solution devised by industry veterans who specialise in mission-critical systems.
The Odobo Marketplace is an integrated “App Store” where the latest HTML5 games can be licensed from developers on the platform. A single integration provides access to the full Odobo content portfolio. All games are presented with profiles that contain: promotional imagery, descriptions, screenshots, icons, compliance certificates, commercial terms, territorial rights, languages, marketing assets, and exposure details. Like other app stores, deploying and configuring any game is one-click away with no downtime or assistance required from technical operations.
The Odobo Developer Program provides an opportunity for studios worldwide to get their games into regulated markets. The program specialises in recruiting and assisting developers through their entire game production process. Developers are supported with an impressive array of state-of-the-art technologies and services that include: Game Development Kit (GDK), HTML5 development tools and environments, game engine creation and mathematical verification, compliance support, localisation screening and oversight, marketing and promotional bundling, and operator business development.
Odobo’s approved developers offer a high-quality and diverse set of games that play across all devices. Players are encouraged to learn about the games, and can choose their favourite operator with whom to play for real-money. Odobo Play will soon be available via a native app for iOS.
Odobo, based in Gibraltar, is licensed and regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commission. The company employs over 80 staff.
