Kermdinger Studios claimed that its new service, Boondogl, will be the first video game marketplace that is not platform specific. When the beta launches, it will be available for PC, Mac and Linux, with mobile, console and VR support expected by next spring. The company stated that gamers will be able to play against their friends regardless of the device each is using.
Kermdinger said that developers can use any development tool to create their games before porting them over to native web technology. The company has also offered to handle porting games if needed, or the developer and publisher can take care of porting if they wish. Offering to port games seems like a noble gesture in order to get games onto the service quickly, but there will presumably be a charge for doing so. We'll be following up with Kermdinger about how it plans to handle porting requests.
Boondogl will host a range of console quality indie games and AAA titles to purchase and play via its service when it opens up to the public. The date for Boondogl's B\beta test has not been revealed, although you can sign up for the company newsletter for a chance to gain access when it is available. Kermdinger plans to launch Boondogl in Q2 2015 on PC, Mac and Linux, so it won't be long before you can try for yourself.
