Loop Unlimited has announced the launch of GameLoop, it’s mobile social network specifically for mobile gamers and developers. The app looks to provide a community not only for gamers who want an outlet to express their love of games, but also for developers to generate interest in their upcoming or existing titles.

With GameLoop, a user’s profile is automatically generated from the user’s game library located on their iOS device. This makes the platform personal, as game recommendations are offered to each user in relation to the titles they already know and love. Recommendations are also offered based on major social trends.

GameLoop moves beyond just mobile games with support for “core” or console game communities as well. A news feed allows users to sound off about their favorite (or not) games, with posts supporting screenshots for sharing particularly important moments. Users can search for content based on tags associated with specific games, or they can browse for posts from users located near them.

Gamers can connect their accounts to Facebook, Twitter and Google+ for further personalization. A direct chat feature is also available.

“GameLoop is the ideal place to talk about the games you like and discover the games you will love,” said Steve Ganem, CEO of Loop Unlimited. “GameLoop will create a hub for players and developers around their games, and eventually, developers of those games will be able to reach their audiences directly.”
