GameFly to publish iOS, Android games

GameFly announced today that it plans to begin publishing mobile games for iOS and Android. The company is now inviting submissions from iOS developers seeking a publisher, and expects to put out its first title sometime in the summer. Submissions can be sent to GameFly's GameDev group via email to gamedev AT gamefly.com.

The company also plans to launch an Android "GameStore" storefront this fall. The store will offer daily deals on Android games, similar to the mobile "Game of the Day" highlight in the iOS GameFly app.

"GameFly is dedicated to giving consumers the best user experience possible, and to be their single destination for console, PC and mobile gaming needs," said co-founder and senior VP of business development Sean Spector, in the announcement. "We plan to be a leading player in mobile games by launching our retail GameStore for Android and helping to fund mobile developers of all sizes to publish, promote and sell their smartphone and tablet games."
