Today Agawi, the cloud gaming company with the mission of providing “any game, anywhere, instantly” for the post-PC era, is unveiling plans to bring its cloud gaming platform, Agawi CloudPlay, to Android tablets. Agawi’s CloudPlay Platform-based Android app will launch for Android tablets in March, through the Google marketplace. This announcement comes on the heels of Agawi’s recent app launch on Windows 8 in collaboration with Microsoft and the huge success of its iPad app. Those two apps have garnered nearly four million downloads and are approaching a million paying users, the vast majority from the iPad.
Agawi’s CloudPlay Platform for Android is designed to be extremely developer-friendly, with zero porting required from the game developer and automatic optimization of the game’s user interface for tablet functionality. After successfully sourcing and bringing thousands of social web-based games to its cloud gaming platform, Agawi will make core PC games accessible on all tablets, with a special interest in working with popular core PC titles from indie developers.
“Agawi’s mission is to bring a vast library of gaming content into the post-PC era of tablets and smart TVs,” said Peter Relan, Agawi’s co-founder and executive chairman. “2013 will be the year of the tablet, and we want the Agawi CloudPlay Platform to be streaming games to every tablet in the market. We’ve already brought over 12,000 social and mid-core games from Facebook to iPads and Windows 8 tablets, and users have paid millions of dollars for the convenience of playing their favorite games on these tablets. Now we’re bringing our platform to Android and extending our developer-friendly solution to core PC game developers.”
