Gamefly is a brand that many of us gamers have known of or even used since its launch in 2002 where they started as subscription game rental mailer service. Through their journey, Gamefly found themselves having a presence in the cloud-gaming vertical. Earlier this year, it was announced that EA would be acquiring Gamefly’s cloud-streaming technology and personnel, leaving their customers wondering where to go.
LiquidSky Software is as much a cloud gaming platform as it is a cloud computing platform. Where services like Gamefly let you stream games, we allow you to stream a full, cloud-based, computer with gaming PC specs. You aren’t limited to games – you can do anything on a SkyComputer that you could do on a local PC. The “sky” is the limit. We even have an Android app, allowing you full access to your SkyComputer straight from any Android powered device. You can learn more or signup from our gaming website, here.

The consumer facing product isn’t the only thing we have developed. Earlier this year, we branched out into the corporate sector with great success to serve large enterprise and telecoms across the world. We offer a white labeled cloud gaming product that can be sold under another company’s brand which is a great alternative to Gamefly streaming. This is built on our interactive Content Delivery Network (iCDN) which enables the interactive content of the future to be streamed to any device with ultra low latency. The iCDN handles all the complicated aspects of managing a global infrastructure to deliver interactive experiences from the edge. Including, but not limited to, auto-scaling, routing, streaming, optimizing cost, and performance. You can find out more about our enterprise product here.
We are sad to see the Gamefly brand disappear from the cloud gaming ranks, but we are confident that we are at the inflection point of cloud gaming becoming a mainstream product.
