SAN FRANCISCO, March 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Bigpoint, the global market leader in Browser MMOs, today announced that it will be demonstrating the next generation of browser based games and the future of multiplayer gaming with a multiplatform technical demo, codenamed Uniter, that illustrates how multiplayer gaming can be achieved across multiple platforms like smart phones and PCs.
Leveraging Unity, Bigpoint can develop games for browser, console or smart phones with the goal of creating a truly open gaming platform. Bigpoint is currently working on other different Unity projects, the first technical demonstration of them (codename Uniter) will be presented at the GDC. The Uniter technology will be demonstrated with the help of a racing game that shows how Unity allows Bigpoint to develop games that are completely synchronous, so the players can compete and interact in real-time on multiple platforms. This is the first time that cross-platform gaming has been realized in this form and will provide the industry with a first look at the future of gaming. A Bigpoint user will be able to play the same character in the game on different platforms. Which means that you can start in the morning on your PC, pick up the same game exactly where you left off on the bus using your smart phone and after that at home on your console. It will be always the same game and the same character.
