Imperial Game Studio is a small independent studio based in Malmo, Sweden. With a strong focus on game quality and connectivity, Imperial Game Studio elects to use Marmalade across all their products, allowing them to hit high production values whilst maximising their cross-platform reach and revenues.
Golf Battle 3D uses Marmalade Studio’s tools and APIs for 3D graphics and skinned character animation. The multi-player gaming modes allow users to connect and play together regardless of their device type (iOS, Android, Symbian or bada) and currently over 250,000 players are playing online. Marmalade’s Facebook Connect integration allows posting of high scores.
Golf Battle 3D managed to hit the #1 Top Paid Sports game for iPad, in multiple regional App Stores. Through its placement in the Marmalade Apps Program, Imperial Game Studio has received additional revenue advances and royalties by having Golf Battle 3D delivered to Samsung Apps (bada) and Korea Telecom’s olleh store (Android).
Martin Flensburg, CEO at Imperial Game Studio, says: "Spending over 6,000 hours on one production is very risky as it is. To only release such a production on one platform could not only be very risky, but also foolish. We browsed the market for suitable middleware and were very impressed by Marmalade. After talking to some colleagues in the industry who also use Marmalade we were quick to take advantage of the possibility to reach out to many platforms from one code base."
