Popular short video service TikTok is trying to understand how popular mobile games can be among users of the platform. For this purpose, tests of HTML5-based mini-games were organized, made available to a limited number of site users and created in cooperation with partners, including game developers from Vodoo, Nitro Games, FRVR, Aim Lab and Lotem.
In the past, TikTok representatives have announced their intention to launch HTML5-based games on their platform. As part of this activity, TikTok partnered with gaming giant Zynga to develop Disco Loco 3D, which has become an exclusive service. It has also been reported that the company is in talks with other game developers, so expect more games to appear on TikTok in the future.
Obviously, the company is considering the possibility of integrating mini-games as another source of income. According to the available data, several games were made available to users during the testing period of the new section. These are FRVR’s Basketball FRVF, Lotem’s Tap the Difference, Nitro’s Peek a Who, Vodoo’s Pride Run, Vodoo’s Influencer Run, Nitro’s Space Destroyer, and Aim Labs’ Mr. Aim Labs Nightmare.
Official representatives of TikTok have not announced the launch of test mini-games on the site, but the company confirmed that the games have been available for a limited number of users in different regions of the world for several weeks. “We’re always looking for ways to enrich our platform and regularly test new features and integrations that benefit our community. We are currently exploring the possibility of adding HTML5-based games to TikTok through integration with third-party developers and studios.”— commented on this question the representatives of TikTok.
