Digital Chocolate Launches Gangs of Boomtown Exclusively on Google+

Third social game on growing social network also signals more cross-platform efforts

SAN MATEO, Calif.--()--Digital Chocolate, a leader in cross-platform social games, today announced the launch of Gangs of Boomtown on Google+. Gangs of Boomtown, an engaging Western-themed game of vengeance was selected by Google on the basis of its high quality gameplay and graphics, combined with its compelling storyline. “Gangs of Boomtown marks the first exclusive game from Digital Chocolate to launch on Google+. We’re happy to see more of their engaging, high-quality games debuting on Google+,” said Punit Soni, Product Lead for Google+ games.

“Google+ is gaining momentum as a leading gaming platform and we see a big cross-platform opportunity with Android as well.”

Gangs of Boomtown is a new social-game take on the Spaghetti Western theme. Boomtown was an idyllic and peaceful settlement on the edge of the frontier – until the ruthless Assassins Gang rode into town and wreaked havoc. Now it’s up to the player to devise a revenge strategy to hunt down the perpetrators.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Google on the launch one of our most anticipated games, Gangs of Boomtown,” said Jason Loia, Chief Operating Officer of Digital Chocolate. “Google+ is gaining momentum as a leading gaming platform and we see a big cross-platform opportunity with Android as well.”

This is Digital Chocolate’s third game release on Google+. What makes this launch special is that Gangs of Boomtown achieves interoperability, using proprietary tools that help bring games to Google+ and other mobile platforms in a timely and efficient manner. More games are on the way, and there are plans for Gangs of Boomtown - along with earlier launches such as Zombie Lane – to be introduced as Android games.

Created specifically to take full advantage of the social features on the Google+ platform, players can gift items and share loot with friends, and visit friends’ towns to help in the fight. Other Google+ advantages to game developers include an existing base of billing relationships and mobile reach and distribution. Digital Chocolate will be implementing a steady wave of enhancements and new content to the game in the coming weeks.
