Thanks to a joint venture between companies OpenFeint and The9, Android could be on the brink of receiving yet another shot in the arm to bolster the gaming community.
According to Venture Beat, OpenFeint and The9 are utilizing a $100 million investment fund known as Fund9 to try and get more game developers switched over to Android. By analyzing sales numbers and OpenFeint rankings, developers will be given money to port popular titles over to Android from iOS. Eros Resmini, vice president of marketing at OpenFeint, has said that “there’s a treasure trove of great games on iOS waiting for the rest of the world to discover. This fund will help make that possible for indie game developers.”
Be on the lookout for more OpenFeint titles hitting the Android Market soon.
