Multiplayer games are excellent social marketing tools for brands. Multiplayer games open up opportunities for players to interact with like-minded persons across the world while giving gaming portals the distinct advantage of attracting more players.
These games call for excellent design besides sophisticated programming capability and delivery. Taking up the challenge Nextwave has successfully developed multiplayer games for Cricket, Mini Golf, Cards games and Snooker.
These games offer players the facility of a lobby to meet other players and create game rooms. Private game rooms where playing is by invitation only, and public game rooms open to all and also for those wishing to view players in action without participating. These games also have chat facility for players to interact and avatar creation and management options.
To deliver these games Nextwave took overall responsibility for game designing, programming, server-side programming and client-side programming. Nextwave is developing multiplayer games for the mobile platform also.
