Words from friends

"The ability to go straight from discussing a game to playing it, makes gaming truly intrinsic to the social experience," said Tung Nguyen-Khac, CEO of Spil Games.

"We already know from what we've seen in Asia how powerful it can be integrating games into the instant messaging environment. Facebook's move brings this idea to a global audience and that has huge potential"

Carolin Krenzer, London General Manager at King, added: "As one of the first developers to partner with Facebook on Instant Games, it's an exciting opportunity for us to develop Shuffle Cats Mini for a new platform to engage both our fans and the huge, global audience that Facebook has."

Facebook launched its Instant Games platform today. It allows Facebook users to access HTML5 games directly from their News Feed or Messenger app.
