IGG And Kalydo Team Up For Facebook MMORPG Releases

In an attempt to further capitalize on the half-a-billion Facebook users, IGG and Kalypso have joined forces to take advantage of the opportunity to bring full-featured client-based MMOs to browser users. Yes, IGG will be offering titles like GodsWar Online and Dreamland Online to Facebook users without a client and without a download…exchanging 200-700MB clients for 30 second page loads.

As stated in the press release…

Kalydo is the first company in the rapidly growing browser game space to launch fully featured MMORPGs in browsers, making full use of Facebook’s social features. After their recently announced partnership with Emergent Game Technologies, the collaboration with IGG is their second big partnership in a very short period of time, and a sign of their focus on becoming big players in the browser market. Not content to rest on these laurels, Kalydo has a whole slate of games that will be ready for launch in early 2011.

The really cool part is that Kalydo is taking a cloud-gaming approach to offering up full client-based games through web browsers. This enables just about anyone to instantly hop into an IGG title and play while staying connected to friends and family via Facebook. It’s a noble step forward in making the technology of MMO gaming and social networking more seamless, as opposed to the cumbersome methods currently available to try to get friends from various networking facilities to connect and play games together.
