In February, Scoreloop announced that they are bringing their cross-platform social gaming system to Windows Phone. We recently interviewed Scoreloop Product Marketing manager Raphael Weiner about the Windows Phone version’s status.
What is the current status of WP7 Scoreloop development?
What is the target launch date?
Head past the jump for the full interview.
How many WP7 developers are signed up right now?
What are the criteria for accepting a WP7 developer into the beta program?
Can you name any specific games that will have cross-platform features? I.e. a game in which WP7 users will directly compete with Android/iOS users in some way?
Microsoft doesn't allow microtransactions on WP7 at this point. One freemium game, Haypi Kingdom, circumvented the prohibition briefly but they were later forced to remove all mention of purchasing additional content. Will any WP7 Scoreloop games have a microtransaction model? If so, how will it be implemented?
Have there been any unique challenges in bringing Scoreloop to WP7?
That’s all for now, faithful readers. Stay tuned to WPCentral in the coming months for more exclusive Scoreloop news.
