Movaya launches PlugNPlay game store plugin

Seattle startup Movaya has launched an intriguing new service: a turnkey mobile games store that retailers, bloggers, MySpacers and anyone else can add to their Web sites.

The service includes the ability to cut and paste a snippet of code onto a Web site to begin selling mobile games.

From the release:

“Until now, selling mobile games directly to consumers via a Web site was difficult and expensive” says Movaya CEO Phil Yerkes. “PlugNPlay eliminates the need for any online retailer to spend thousands of dollars and months of time to build this type of Web site offering. Our PlugNPlay service it is a quick, easy and low cost solution for anyone wanting to sell mobile video games.”

Maybe I should start hawking games here to boost the rainy day fund.

Yerkes previously spent 10 years at RealNetworks in business development and sales management. Before he left he was handling major accounts with wireless companies, including Sprint and Cingular Wireless.

He started Movaya with John Calian, a veteran of domain name service provider eNom.

They surfaced last year and now have a development center in Chengdu, China, in addition to HQ in the Eastlake neighborhood.
