SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Apr 04, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — Telesocial( www.telesocial.com ), the San Francisco-based cloud telephony service platform, has released a free plug-in extension for the Unity engine and development tools that lets developers add mobile voice services into their games. Developers can now easily add a 3D fully functioning telephone or voicemail system into their game, which can be used to call other characters, initiate group calls or team conferencing directly from any Unity app — with no cost to the developer!
Telesocial is the only solution for Unity developers to add free mobile-to-mobile calling, group calling, and voice features into their games in a safe and anonymous way. Phone numbers are secure and never shared. Additionally, Telesocial’s editor extension is easy to integrate and does not require VoIP, client download or a headset. Developers can easily configure it with the integrated GUI tools.
“Game developers are always looking for new channels to enhance their games,” says Eric Stone, CTO and co-founder of Telesocial. “With the Telesocial 3D plug-in, players can call other players for help, characters can leave messages or communicate with players. These are some of the many features that our plug-in can instantly add to a game and create a new social game mechanic,” adds Stone.
In-game mobile calling is an innovative and powerful social feature that increases game retention and viralty. By adding mobile communications, developers can enhance the user experience and increase engagement in single-player, multi-player and social games.
