WEST PALM BEACH, FL–(Marketwire – September 27, 2010) – Quepasa Corporation (
“Hollywood will integrate these new games into Quepasa’s Open Social Developer platform, building upon the success of our very popular casual, role-playing and social-based games,” said John Abbott, CEO of Quepasa. “We believe Quepasa will be the first social network to offer skill-based games through which users will have the ability to win cash and prizes. We expect these jointly developed games to further drive the engagement and monetization of Quepasa’s rapidly growing Latino user base, now totaling more than 19 million, as well as continue to differentiate our core offerings.”
According to Kevin Short, founder of Hollywood Creations: “This partnership with the creative team at Quepasa provides Hollywood a well-established entry to a rapidly growing Latino user base that we believe will greatly enjoy these highly engaging, interactive skill-based games. Quepasa’s Open Social Developer platform provides an ideal framework and technology to make our games more socially interactive, engaging, and straightforward to deploy and manage.”
Quepasa anticipates rolling out Hollywood Creations’ first two titles, Lyric and Pokerville, initially, with more games in development. Lyric is a music knowledge game, which progresses based on points gained for completing various lyrics, whereas Pokerville connects and enables members to interact in virtual poker rooms.
Added Abbott: “These games will complement the skill-based wagering games developed by Titan Gaming, which were announced in June and are currently being integrated into our site. The partnership with Hollywood Creations also reflects our continued efforts to expanding our Open Social Developer platform to the broader game developer community.”
