SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/13 -- Ludei, the only HTML5 platform that brings native performance and features to mobile developers, today announced that just five months after its launch, more than 5,000 developers have adopted its platform and are publishing games like Lunch Bug, Bubble Soccer, Rhino Hero and Architect Puzzle Game.

"There's still skepticism out there about whether HTML5 is ready for game development, but the developers on the Ludei Platform are proof that its time has come," said Ludei CEO Eneko Knorr. "Our developers are publishing high-performance games with full native features including in-app payments, social and ad networks to every popular mobile and Web marketplace from a single HTML5 codebase."

Developers using the Ludei Platform range from some of the biggest names in entertainment to up-and-coming independent developers. Ludei is helping large, established developers solve challenging problems, including performance and audio issues and distribution to the major mobile app stores like iTunes and Google Play, and empowering smaller, independent developers to expand their audience and earn money with multi-platform distribution and native payment features.

"Ludei's platform has completely changed the landscape for HTML5 mobile development," said Geoff Blair of Lost Decade Games. "Without it, our games would be stuck running below 15 frames per second, and with nowhere to deploy and monetize them. Now, we can deploy HTML5 games to the most popular app stores which perform on par with native games and make us real money."

Close to 400 games, from rising developers like Goko and major household names, are using the Ludei Platform. Ludei is the only platform that offers all the tools, API and cloud services developers need to quickly and easily develop, accelerate and publish fully featured HTML5 games to every popular mobile and Web marketplace. The company is adding new features regularly, and announced 3D game development support via the open WebGL standard in March.

The Ludei Platform supports the Apple App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon, NOOK®, Tizen, FirefoxOS, Chrome and Pokki markets.
