Tanjarine is the first integrated tabletop ordering, entertainment and pay-at-the-table solution to combine 10" proprietary tabletop tablets with server handhelds, which expedites service, payment, and second screen TV's. The platform provides guests with menu and entertainment options, portability that eliminates the constraints of one-tablet-per-table installations, and other innovations that help increase restaurant efficiency and average check size. Customizable for bars and restaurants, Tanjarine's catalog of entertainment offers games, music and content that targets everyone from families to sports fans to couples and more. Many of the games also enable guests to play with a friend or connect the tabletop tablets to second screens TV's located throughout a venue, creating a more interactive gaming experience.
Soul and Vibe created a unique version of its highly popular innovative "match-3" game, Timeless Gems, for Tanjarine. Timeless Gems was officially launched on the Tanjarine platform in early July 2014. In addition to Timeless Gems, Tanjarine has licensed other Soul and Vibe games for their platform. Specifics will be publicly disclosed in the coming weeks.
"We are very happy to announce our relationship with Tanjarine," said Soul and Vibe's CEO and President, Peter Anthony Chiodo ("Tony"). "Soul and Vibe's appearance on the Tanjarine platform is a great opportunity for our Company. We are able to expand the awareness of both the Soul and Vibe brand and our games, like our innovative "match-3" puzzler, Timeless Gems. Our inclusion on the Tanjarine platform broadens our customer base and sets up a revenue-generating marketing vehicle for our games. We aim to forge a long-term relationship with Tanjarine, a relationship that we foresee being mutually beneficial as our two businesses grow. We are honored to have had Timeless Gems selected for their platform."
"We are creating our 'gold standard' by selecting high quality entertainment for our broad user base, and Timeless Gems delivers on all fronts," said Stacy Rademacher, Executive Producer of Games & Entertainment at Tanjarine. "Our partnership with Soul and Vibe reiterates both companies' level of commitment as it gives us the opportunity to expand our rapidly growing platform with what restaurant guests want - fun and engaging entertainment."
During the 1st Quarter, Soul and Vibe launched Timeless Gems, a "Free-To-Play" innovative "match-3" puzzle game for Facebook, Android devices, and Apple's iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Since its worldwide multi-platform launch, Timeless Gems downloads have rapidly surpassed 500,000 and, as announced in April 2014, monetized content sales have outperformed the industry standard for a "Free-To-Play" game.
Timeless Gems is a "match-3" game in the same popular genre as Candy Crush. In Timeless Gems, your favorite storybooks come to life in an innovative "match-3" puzzler that's wrapped in a board game. Timeless Gems creates an innovative play experience by combining highly popular "match-3" game play with board game elements. This combination lets players experience classic stories like Dracula, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in a whole new way. Playing as core characters from the classic books in the Timeless Gems library, you'll meet a colorful cast of heroes and villains. Match gems, power up, and connect and play with your friends on Facebook. The game was developed by Telos Entertainment.
