HAIFA, Israel, October 6 /PRNewswire/ — Come2Play, a developer of a unique platform for multiplayer casual Flash games, today announced the release of an open-source application program interface (API) that enables game developers to turn single player flash games into social gaming networks.

Come2Play will wrap those new games in a SWF file with a branded GUI, widgets & application, in order to enhance advertisers' engagement with their potential customers and grow games developers' business opportunities. In addition, Come2Play offers developers 100 percent of the in-game advertising revenue generated from their games on any Web site around the world.

Come2Play invites developers to use, change, and improve the API and emulator where the future versions of it will be developed in a public, collaborative manner. The open source API is a developer generated software and Come2Play wishes to empower game developers by giving them a sense of ownership.

Come2Play is putting game developers back in control and offering them the opportunity to exploit the full potential of their Flash game in terms of revenues, distribution and branding, and still retain all copyright. This approach is also intended to offer in-game branding to support a sponsorship deal with international brands for new original games that will reach wide-spread popularity among addictive online gamers. This will enhance the potential revenues of talented game developers compared to ad networks advertising base tags program.

Come2Play also gives game developers maximum exposure through concentrated distribution tools. Additionally, Come2Play's platform provides an option for copying games and placing them as widgets and applications in iGoogle, Facebook, MySpace, Orkut, and Google's open social partner network. These widgets and apps carry the Web site administrator's logos and link back to sites. The game carries the site brand on all applications and widgets.

Developers can add their multiplayer games to Come2Play's social game gallery and make it available to any Web site owner who creates a social gaming network on Come2Play.

"Come2Play provides developers with an advanced open-source API that allows them to easily create social networks around multiplayer Flash games. With our new open-source API game developers can create a social community that combines players from different social networks, personal pages, blogs and Web sites based on live, real-time interaction," said Alon Barzilay, Co-founder and CEO of Come2Play.

One of the main technological breakthroughs of Come2Play's new open-source API is that it eliminates the need for developers to master more than one programming language, thus saving significant time and effort.
