The game may be played on Facebook or on the KHM's website (with your Platogo login data).

Platogo goes Netherlands

Long time - no see. You might have wondered already what happened to our blog. We were extremely busy over the last few weeks or let's say month :-) . We are working on a completely new product called social.io for our most favorite customers - YOU the mighty social game developer. I can't tell you all the details yet, but the first games using this awesome technology will go live on MeinVZ and Facebook soon.

Learn more about social.io

We are at the Festival of Games in the Netherlands right now and would love to tell you more about our new baby. Feel free to contact us on Twitter (@platogo, @ripcurlx, @trahfo) or e-mail (christoph[at]platogo.com, jakob[at]platogo.com).

Play BusMeister and Improve Public Transportation

Platogo just released a new game, BusMeister, based on the Platogo Wrapper. In BusMeister players improve public transport service by applying tools such as bus stops, traffic signals, bus lanes, larger buses, etc. to a bus route. BusMeister starts simply by having players place bus stops evenly on a short section of street and gets progressively harder - in the last level players need to design a route for a blank street.

It supports all the features of the Platogo Wrapper (Highscores, Levels, Challenges, Achievements, and more). BusMeister is part of GreenCityStreets, a project designed to encourage people to learn about sustainable transportation and encourage them to get involved in improving their local transport systems. BusMeister teaches players about public transport so that they will be more likely to support controversial improvement projects such as bus lanes and transit priority.

GreenCityStreets also provides a forum where players can discuss real ideas for improving public transport in their cities and a best practices library where they can learn more about public transport. GreenCityStreets uses our new product social.io to create a platform about public transport for all people around the world.

BusMeister is the first game by GreenCityStreets. Once the game and forum are established, GreenCityStreets will add applications for other forms of sustainable transportation including biking and walking. Transport agencies and planning consultants can also use customized versions of BusMeister to help facilitate public participation in planning studies.

New Features for Highscores

Today we want to announce some cool new features for our developer community:

  • Digits: now you can set up scoreboards with digits, that means if you submit a score of 10025 with digits = 2, we'd display that value as 100.25 in the scoreboard
  • Score Data: with every score that you submit you can simply attach a data object. In a racing game you could use that data to display ghost driver
  • Unlimited scoreboards: now you can define as many scoreboards to your games as you want
  • Export User Data: now you can conveniently export users data from the monthly and all-time scoreboard to CSV in the backend.
  • Show in Socialbar: now you can specify which scoreboards should show up in the Socialbar.

We hope you like all those new features

100.000 Reasons to Celebrate!

Now if that isn't quite something! Over the past six months our community grew from 5000 users to over 100.000 – more than 4000 of our users play on a daily basis. We don't necessarily like to pat our own shoulder, but in this case... ;)

It goes without saying that we also want to give out a big "THANK YOU" to our partners over at www.szene1.at and Rediff, for helping making this possible.

And we want to keep it moving: While enhancing our user base we also enhanced our game portfolio – now more than 50 games can be played on Platogo, Szene1, Facebook and Rediff. Expect more in the near future!
