DeepMarkit Corp. (“DeepMarkit” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:MKT) is very pleased to announce FetchBot Social, DeepMarkit’s new platform, bringing casual and social games in HTML5 to messaging apps, social media platforms and other online environments.

“FetchBot Social is not just a source of games for Facebook Messenger,” stated Darold H. Parken, CEO of DeepMarkit, “we are empowering any business or social community to capitalize on the popularity of shareable instant games and, more importantly, we are providing the means to actually monetize gameplay through branding, sponsorship, product placement, messaging, prizes and incentives. FetchBot Social is a very exciting new initiative for DeepMarkit because it opens up huge new audience for the gaming expertise and the ability to monetize social games which our team can deliver,” continued Mr. Parken. “Players are going to love our games and sponsors are going to love the value we can help them extract from the experience. Just give us a website and we will show you what we can do for you.”
From a messaging app, social media service or any website, people can challenge friends to compete in score-based games and through constantly updated leaderboards. FetchBot Social games leverage HTML5 technology so they can be distributed and played on any device and on any of the popular social media sites.
DeepMarkit provides a full turnkey solution from a unique concept for the business, full creative, system integration and administration of the gaming environment. FetchBot Social supports the creation of customized, branded games with corporate logos, text, an array of animated characters, a palette of design themes, and redeemable rewards.
