Note: Platogo will be launching in public beta summer 2009.
Platogo brings together casual gaming, user generated content and social networking in a solution that's appealing to both gamers and developers. It provides users with a fully integrated platform for browser-based gaming, as well as attractive revenue shares for developers.
Platogo gained departure funding in 2008, and is a Mini Seedcamp Berlin 2009 and Seedcamp Week 2009 winner. Based in Vienna, Austria and founded in 2008, Platogo is headed by five gaming and IT specialists.
What we do
Platogo is the first platform to apply the Web 2.0 ideas of user-generated content and strong community focus to browser-based gaming. The number of Platogo games and levels grows indefinitely with and through the community: users can also be producers, creating and sharing their own game levels.
Game developers also gain significantly, as Platogo offers them an attractive platform for their games and appealing revenue shares. Revenue is driven by sales to users (e.g. in-game items and features via microtransactions) as well as multiple advertising options on the website and inside games.
