mig33 launches Game Developer Program: The social networking community has launched a program that gives social game developers access to its 40 million registered users in order to build a community quickly. The effort sounds a lot like what Apple, Ngmoco and Aurora Feint already offer. Mig33 says that the program will help it expand its social game offerings, which generated 1 million “game plays” in Q3. The developers will tap into the company’s APIs to particpate, and will receive promotional opportunities, virtual goods options, as well as an unspecified “revenue share.” [mig33]
