Fatfoogoo to provide payment systems for Project Darkstar

Microtransactions to be integrated into open source software for online games

In-game commerce specialist Fatfoogoo is to integrate its microtransactions software with Project Darkstar, the open source development environment created by Sun Microsystems.

Developers will now be able to use Fatfoogoo's micropayments systems in Project Darkstar, a resource designed for online games, virtual worlds and social networking initiatives.

"We are bringing microtransactions first to the publishers and developers and, as a result, to the gaming community," said Fatfoogoo CEO, Martin Herdina.

"Implementing micropayments into a game is a complex process that needs close attention. We make it easy for game developers to integrate our services into their games, so they can focus on their core competence.

"The real beneficiaries, however, are the gamers who can now easily make small and secure payments within the flow of the game," added Herdina.
