Denmark, March 10th - A couple of young entrepreneurs, Rune Dalton and Christian Lykke, have just launched a new cloud gaming service Snoost.com, which enables gamers around the world to play the newest video games from any computer on high graphics, even Mac and Linux, so they never have to worry about hardware again.
You can now play any game you own on high graphics, for unlimited hours, as long as you’re on a solid internet connection. It works simply by letting a powerful gaming computer in the cloud run the game for you, and then stream the video directly to your own local computer, thus reducing the hardware requirements to the same as watching a movie on your computer.
The founders came up with the idea over a year ago, as they were tired of always having to upgrade their Mac or PC to be able to play new games.
- It’s ironic that we wanted to make gaming easier and more accessible for everyone else, but have now been working nonstop on Snoost for a year and haven’t had much time to play and enjoy the games ourselves, other than extensive testing, says Rune Dalton, one of the founders who has always loved to play games himself.
Snoost launches in the EU as well as the U.S., and has partnered up with Amazon AWS (the world’s largest cloud infrastructure provider) to provide the best possible customers for its users. For less than a dollar a day, gamers around the world will be able to play their favourite games on high graphics, without the need to buy an expensive gaming PC to play them on.
- We’re really excited for this upcoming adventure, and to continue developing the service based on user feedback. We don’t know where we’ll be in a year, but we really just want to keep making cloud gaming an affordable reality for gamers like ourselves, explains Christian Lykke, co-founder.
The Cloud Gaming service has been under development for over a year in the city of Aarhus (Denmark), and has now finally been launched internationally to the public (as Alpha).
