Quepasa Corporation is the creator of Quepasa.com, a growing online social network dedicated to serve the Latino community. The agreement entails the addition of five new social game titles to Quepasa.com beginning in January 2011.
Quepasa.com is a trilingual Latino social network and is an authentic Latino community that provides fun, interactive, and easy to use social tools, and rich multimedia content in English, Spanish and Portuguese. It serves Latinos everywhere and empowers them to connect online, compete in contests and games and share their interests, ideas, and activities.
According to company sources, this addition follows the success of the other games on Quepasa’s Open Social Platform. Also, the agreement allows Quepasa to act as a distributor for eGames. Quepasa will also publish and promote eGames’ titles to relevant third party social media platforms.
Quepasa’s expertise and resources in the Latin American market will help eGames besides offering an additional revenue channel for Quepasa.
John Abbott, CEO of Quepasa, said in a press release, “We expect eGames’ titles to drive the engagement and monetization of Quepasa’s rapidly growing Latino user base, now totaling more than 25 million.”
“We are also excited to position ourselves as both a publisher and distributor in the Latin marketplace; we believe this differentiated strategy will put us in a strong position in a post-Facebook (News - Alert) social gaming environment,” Abbott added.
Jerry Klein, president and CEO of eGames further explained that Quepasa’s large, growing user base will provide an ideal audience to drive rapid adoption and monetization of these games. Quepasa’s support with the distribution of eGames’ titles in Latin America will bring both the companies great success, Klein noted.
eGames specializes in the development and publishing of casual games for leading Social Networks, the PC, Nintendo DS and Wii, iPhone (News - Alert) and the Internet, including The Dracula Files, Burger Island, Burger Island 2: The Missing Ingredient, Satisfashion and Purrfect Pet Shop among others.
