Not content with simply offering up console titles for rent via their online webstore, GameFly — the Netflix of video games — is diving headfirst into the mobile world this fall. GF announced today an all new publishing arm similar to Gameloft that will not only publish Android apps, but will also help aid struggling developers in demand of extra funding to get their games up and running on Android devices.
Also on menu is the GameFly GameStore, a stand-alone app store similar to the Amazon Appstore, but with games specifically curated by the GF team. This gives not only another way for the corporation to highlight their own published titles, but will also give social features and highlight deals specific to the GameStore. Amazon and Gameloft better watch out. Gamefly’s coming in cute this year. You can read all the details in the press release below.
