LUDEI, A COMPANY FOUNDED BY ENEKO KNORR, HAS LAUNCHED A NEW PLATFORM THAT TURNS HTML5 GAMES INTO FAST APPLICATIONS
Making HTML5 games run fast is important because it will simplify life for game developers. Right now, they have to use valuable resources either creating cross-platform but slow games or fast native apps that have to be rewritten for each new platform. Ludei’s CocoonJS is a solution that makesHTML5 mobile games work really fast. "We manage to get much better performance for games in a browser,” saidEneko Knorr, CEO and founder of Ludei. “But we aren’t forcing anyone to learn custom code. You can port games to iOS and Android without losing performance.” Ludei, with its offices in San Francisco and Bilbao, Spain, created its own successful native mobile games iBasket and Slide Soccer. Those games have been downloaded more than 15 million times. The company is self-funded by Knorr, who previously sold a web hosting company to Telefonica. The team has 17 employees.
