Tired of the empty hype surrounding cloud gaming? So is Kalydo. That’s why we decided to share this use case, so you can see for yourself how Kalydo’s cloud gaming makes all the difference.
The original game
Remnant Knights was originally published and distributed as a 1,1 gigabyte downloadable client, requiring 12 clicks from registration to play and a long download and installation process. GameSamba on average, managed to get 40% of players into their game. A loss of 60% of potential players.
|Time to Play*||1,5 hours||original full client download and installation|

|Conversion||40 %||from registration to play|
*based on 20mbs internet connection

Time To Play
Using Kalydo’s file streaming, Remnant Knights starts after loading only a small part of the game, resulting in a fast time to play. More game data is streamed dynamically during play, without affecting game performance. Game content that is downloaded is stored on the user’s PC for future play sessions.
Clicks To Play
Using the Kalydo desktop launcher, the clicks needed to play have been reduced from 12 to 6, increasing conversion rates from visitor to player.
Using Kalydo, Remnant Knights’ conversion from visitor to player increase to 88,5 %. The screenshot below was taken directly from Kalydo’s back office. GameSambe used the analytics to locate and solve any potential conversion blockers, maximizing the game’s real potential.
