Pokki Adds Galaxy Life Game To App Platform

Desktop application environment maker Pokki, which is run by San Diego-based SweetLabs, said yesterday that it has added the popular Galaxy Life social game on its environment. The firm said that Galaxy LIfe, which is developed by Digital Chocolate, now runs via its desktop application environment. SweetLabs launched Pokki in June of last year, looking to bring the ubiquity of apps to the desktop PC platform. Pokki is the second project out of SweetLabs, which also runs the OpenCandy advertising network; the firm is venture backed by Intel Capital, Google Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, and O'Reilly AlphaTech Ventures. Darrius Thompson, one of the founders of DivX, heads up SweetLabs.
