Sdkbox V1.3 released

September 30, 2015 in Cocos2d-x, Cocos2d-x, Game Engines, News by admin

cocos2dx-logovia blog.cocos2d-x.org:

We are super excited to announce the release of SDKBOX v1.3! This new version not only enhances the current line of plug-ins, but also adds new plugins for Fyber, Bee7,SOOMLA Grow and “Ratings and Reviews”. Over 2700 games have installed an SDKBOX-enabled service since it was integrated with Cocos2d-x v3.7 on July 27th.

Kai Zhao, GM of Chukong USA, said:

If you look at the mobile game engine market today, it’s really a two horse race between Cocos2d-x and Unity. While Cocos2d-x is larger in China, Unity is larger in the US, and we split Korea, Japan, EMEA and APAC. Unity has made some smart choices with their first party live services, but SDKBOX
is a truly democratic system because developers can choose from a list of pre- certified services for analytics, user acquisition, mediation and more. To succeed in mobile today, you have to be able to choose from the best live operations service partners, not just from the ones pre-selected by your engine maker.

Chukong also announced the following new partners, which are launching on a
rolling basis on the platform through the next month, including
PlayPhone, ValuePotion, and Scientific Revenue.

We recommend this update for all SDKBOX users. Please visit the SDKBOX website for more details!
