Hooked Media Group launches Yoo-Mee.com Portal

Recommended Posts

Hooked Media Group today introduced Yoo-Mee.com, an online portal that offers consumers the chance to play their favorite games and participate in skill based Challenges and Tournaments. The portal offers games that are 100% free to play at www.yoo-mee.com.

Developers can integrate directly with Yoo-Mee to provide further distribution and a full tournament experience for each individual game. The newly launched Flash game destination features a variety of games that appeal to a wide audience. In addition to increasing game plays and gaining scale through competition and Yoo-Mee's growing community of players, partners will also gain access to another solid revenue stream through paid currency transactions.

Over 50 game development/publishing partners have already chosen to sign up. Yoo-Mee partners with the developer to bring their games to players wherever they play -- websites, social networks, and mobile devices ? thereby creating a user and publisher ecosystem around their games.

"We're thrilled to be able to offer people the chance to play a greater variety of games to compete for cash and prizes." Prita Uppal, CEO of Hooked Media Group.

Yoo-Mee allows players to compete one-on-one with each other or in group tournaments, and keeps track of high-scores, virtual currency, and social media connections so that gamers can connect with friends and top players. Casual gamers will be able to obtain virtual currency by playing their favorite casual games and wagering against one another. Yoo-Mee will support two types of virtual currency: the first currency, Tokens, is a loyalty currency that users obtain by simply playing games, inviting friends and playing with one another. The second currency, Gold, is purchased and used in one-on-one challenges to earn real money.

The site is constantly evolving with new: games, categories, features, and services being added.
