Sulake CEO: More games within Habbo0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:35 pm

A powerhouse platform for gaming. That is the term that Sulake CEO Paul Lafontaine wants to use for the re-invention of Habbo, as he looks into making Habbo an even bigger contender on the already saturated gaming market.  However Lafontaine is unconcerned by market saturation and with 2.5 million weekly users and 10 million monthly Habbos logging into hotels worldwide, he wants that experience to be as pleasurable as possible.

The problem at this moment according to LaFontaine is that “We’re experts in online safety and monetisation but we’re less experienced in building games.” This essentially signifies the recently reported shift to other platforms of gaming. However, it is not only going to be mobile developers such as Niko getting in on the action. Web developers will also play a key role in the hotel. For example, Snowball was one such case where 27% Habbos utilized it in January. The plan is to develop more of such similar games within Habbo in order to take the outdated platform to one that is more contemporary.

Lafontaine’s plan is not to flood the market with masses of games, but to release 1 to 3 such games on a monthly basis. Still, such a target is a significant improvement to the lack of such games in the past. Also, Lafontaine had this to say about mobile games: “We want as many mobile releases as possible, I want to build the momentum now.”
