TeePee Games, a discovery platform for social, smartphone and online Flash games announced the launch of its official Facebook application this week. The new app allows Facebook users to access TeePee Games from directly within the social network, bringing games discovery to more people than ever before. Just like web their portal, TeePee Games’ Facebook app utilizes the discovery engine Geronimo to provide each user with personalized content recommendations, allowing them to find and play the games most pertinent to their interests. TeePee Games currently has more than 350 titles in its catalogue of Facebook games and already has agreements in place with some of the largest social game developers in the sector, including Playdom, Wooga, Digital Chocolate and Hit Point Studios.
The TeePee Games Facebook app allows players to see what games their friends have been, and are currently, playing. Powered by the discovery engine Geronimo, the platform allows consumers to find, filter and store games from a multitude of sources such as Facebook, Flash game portals and Android handsets. It’s been designed with a number of social features to encourage consumers to use the discovery platform as part of their daily online activities – a community element aids social interaction, while rewards and loyalty points have been implemented to incentivize game play. Tony Pearce, CEO at TeePee Games comments, “With so many games available on the Facebook platform a lot of users are discontentedly spending hours wading through titles they’re not interested in playing or going back to the same select few games. Facebook is in need of something that will shake things up – an app that can index games and promote each one to its target audience and this is where TeePee Games comes in to play.”
