I’m happy to announce a new offer that reinforces our commitment to gaming. We are partnering with Marmalade to make it easy for developers to build new games for the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet and the upcoming BlackBerry 10 smartphones.
Qualified developers that register here will receive a free, time-limited Marmalade SDK license for the BlackBerry PlayBook platform and a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. Once the developer has published their app to BlackBerry App World™, they will be able to unlock the cross-platform power of the Marmalade SDK and receive a free 6 month Marmalade Indie license.
Over the past few months we’ve shown the BlackBerry PlayBook to game developers at conferences and trade shows around the world. Developers are excited and inspired after they see the power of the platform. That’s reflected by the growth of the app catalogue on the BlackBerry PlayBook, with over 20,000 apps available and many new games like “Cut the Rope” which are made using the Marmalade SDK.
Game developers can leverage this offer to take advantage of the powerful gaming capabilities of the BlackBerry PlayBook and BlackBerry 10 and the first-to-market opportunity that the BlackBerry 10 platform provides.
