Big Fish unveils cloud gaming service

05 SEP 2012

Game developer Big Fish unveiled a cloud gaming subscription service for Android tablets, including Google’s Nexus 7.

Called Big Fish Unlimited, the service enables users to play games that are streamed from remote servers. As the games are hosted in the cloud, game progress is saved remotely, meaning players can continue to play a game even when they switch devices.

Subscribers can either pay a monthly fee of US$7.99 for access to the Big Fish Unlimited premium catalogue or access free games that are supported by advertising. There are currently more than 100 titles available on the service.

"With the addition of support for Android devices, Big Fish Unlimited is now a truly multi-platform streaming service and live on two screens: PC and Mobile," said Big Fish VP and General Manager of Cloud Gaming, Will O'Brien.

The service was launched for PCs in July and will expand into connected TVs later in the year in partnership with Roku.
