YoYo Games today announced that it has integrated a number of monetization and analytics services into its cross platform game development technology GameMaker: Studio.
AdColony, AdMob, Google Analytics, Google Play Licensing, iAds, MoPub and SupersonicAds will be accessible in GameMaker: Studio through a free upgrade to version 1.1 of the popular tool. Due to be released in September, version 1.1. of GameMaker: Studio will give developers access these services directly from GameMaker: Studio, allowing users to incorporate ads and analytics, and export their games from a single dashboard.
YoYo Games first announced GameMaker: Studio back in May. The service’s drag-and-drop development environment allows developers to create games in a single code base and then export and run them natively on multiple formats like HTML5, Facebook, Android, Windows and OSX.
Additional services integrations are in the works and will be announced in the September update.
