Instant Games on Facebook Messenger are now a reality! We know this is great news for all the HTML5 game developers out there.
Starting today (but still in beta), and in selected countries, Facebook Messenger users will be able to challenge their friends to play HTML5 games directly inside their Messenger app.
But the big news following the bigger news, is that GamePix has been selected as one of the few companies to have had the opportunity to work on this new awesome Facebook project.
So, we are happy to share the news: you can now challenge your friends to play Cut the Rope 2 HTML5 Instant game.
Seeing is believing: with this new kind of games you can really challenge your friends, just a click and you’re Instant(ly playing) Games! We tested it, had fun with it (a lot) and we know you are going to love it!!!
For those of you interested in learning more about the project, please check the whole experience in the following screenshots:
1) Open your Facebook Messenger App and select the friend you want to challenge
2) click on the “Instant Games” icon at the bottom of the screen, select “Cut the Rope 2” and press “Play”
3) as soon as the game has loaded click “Play now” and try to make the highest score!
4) at the end of the game session you’ll be able to share your score on your Facebook wall or play again, challenging new friends.
