Team17’s portfolio is now available to RMA’s current and future B2B partners as part of its games content offer. For RMA this is the 5th business relationship announced so far in 2021.
RemoteMyApp, established in 2014, has been a key player in the cloud gaming market ever since. Its varied business activities, advanced streaming technology, and a successful network of connections in the game publishers’ space have been noticed by Newzoo. The world’s leading provider of games and esports data and insights featured RMA in the Stakeholder Spotlight section of the March 2021 Update of its Global Cloud Gaming Report.
The renowned publishers RMA has already partnered with are: Plug in Digital, 505 Games, and Microids. Today, this great group gets enriched by the genre and platform-agnostic Team17, which was founded in 1990 and has its headquarters in the United Kingdom. Over 110 titles have been created by Team17 and development partners from all over the globe, and the company is still very active in acquiring talented individuals and teams to enhance their portfolio with attention-grabbing additions.
“Today’s announcement that several of our most loved games label titles are now available on MagentaGaming, DT’s cloud gaming platform powered by RemoteMyApp underlines Team17’s strategic approach of being platform agnostic.” says Harley Homewood, Business Development Director, Team17. “Working with RMA and expanding the reach of these games to millions of mobile users across Germany is a natural step for us as we continue to broaden our horizon to bring our games to as many people around the world as possible.”
The MagentaGaming cloud gaming service, owned by the German telecommunications giant – Deutsche Telekom, which relies on streaming technology provided by RMA, has opted for 5 widely-recognized Team17 games label titles to expand their games offering’s excellent variety and appeal. Subscribers to the platform can now play Yoku’s Island Express, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, Genesis Alpha One Deluxe Edition, My Time at Portia, and Raging Justice.
Dominik Lauf, Program Lead and Chief Product Officer at MagentaGaming from Deutsche Telekom, explains why these particular titles have attracted him and why he appreciates RMA’s intermediation in the often challenging content licensing process. “Team 17’s games, combining adventure, mystery and open world elements, are a perfect fit to attract a huge variety of gamers. RMA helped us as an aggregator to create the game catalog for the MagentaGaming launch and has been active in licensing games on our behalf since then. Their great contacts in the international publishers’ world make the sourcing process more simple for us.”
RMA’s CEO, Andreas Hestbeck, who is a dedicated gamer, an industry veteran in gaming and more recently one of the leading experts in cloud gaming, always shows immense enthusiasm at new partnerships that boost the company’s growth. “Team17’s titles have been created with a visible passion for entertainment that any player will certainly be able to enjoy to the fullest. Their new titles will surely make a great addition to the games’ portfolio we are offering to our B2B partners.”
RemoteMyApp is a fast-developing cloud gaming solution provider. Soon the entity will be able to unveil more strategic partnerships that will continue to leverage its already leading position in the market. This way RMA will be offering all pillars required for a cloud gaming service to operate successfully: seamless streaming technology, valuable contacts in the game developers and publishers’ space, and tailored infrastructure.
