AOL Launches SDK For IM-Game Integration

2005-05-16 10:52:00

AOL today announced the Messaging Software Developer Kit (SDK) designed to give online game developers access to the AIM and ICQ instant messaging networks directly in their games.

This new program follows on the success of the integration of the AIM service into The Matrix Online, a multi-player online game from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and SEGA. That implementation gave large numbers of players the ability to see the online presence of fellow gamers and communicate with them in real-time.

"The marriage AIM and ICQ with online games gives developers a unique opportunity to increase the popularity of their games," said AIM/ICQ vice president Chamath Palihapitiya, "because it offers game developers the nation's largest instant messaging community which will add new players to their games, and to enhance the player experience."

The AOL Messaging SDK enables developers to incorporate presence technology that lets users to see when their buddies are online and available to chat or play games. The AIM service also helps gamers make new connections and easily "ping" their buddies while they are inside the game application for a fun and interactive experience.

Developers will be able to incorporate instant messaging into any new or existing games, and maintain full control over every aspect of their product. The AOL Messaging SDK also provides an efficient process for designing and incorporating the AIM and ICQ services into games.
