Google's Cloud Division forms Partnership with SuperGaming
According to reports, Google’s Cloud division has formed a partnership with homegrown gaming startup SuperGaming.
As part of the tie-up, SuperGaming’s game engine, SuperPlatform, will be available for developers using Google Cloud to build, host and distribute their games.
The move comes two years after an initial partnership between SuperGaming and Google in 2020, which saw the Pune-based firm move its on-cloud resources from Amazon Web Services(AWS) to Google Cloud.
Developers will not be restricted to using only Google Cloud if they use SuperGaming’s resources, but Google’s service would be the ‘preferred’ platform, as per reports. Financial details of the partnership were not disclosed.
SuperGaming’s game engine, SuperPlatform, is presently used by Japanese developer, Namco, for the popular Pac-Man games on mobile devices. The startup, which raised $5.5 million in April last year, is also using its engine to build a homegrown battle royale title, Indus Royale.
The partnership will allow game developers on Google Cloud to access SuperGaming’s resources to manage live ops, matchmaking, player progression, player data, analytics, and monetization systems
