Bigpoint (http://www.bigpoint.com/) – the global market leader in browser-based massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) – today announced that its most popular free-to-play games are available in the Chrome Web Store. Bigpoint has added DarkOrbit, Seafight, Farmerama, and Zoomumba to the online marketplace, all Flash-based titles that together have garnered over 100+ million registered users worldwide.
In 2011, Bigpoint will add Unity-based titles to the Chrome Web Store, including Ruined Online, a fast-paced, arena-style combat game set in a post-apocalyptic San Francisco. Unveiled earlier this year at GDC Online, the title includes high-end graphical and gameplay features common to traditional console games. Under development at Bigpoint’s first North American office in San Francisco, Ruined Online is planned for release early next year.
