Why can't we all just get along?

brainCloud isn't just for games - but it does have great gaming features.

Likewise brainCloud isn't just for apps.

brainCloud is designed and built by bitHeads (a technology company with over 20 years building real-time server technology and solutions) and our subsidiary gaming studio playBrains (a gaming studio with over 8 years experience building games for console, mobile and pc). So we understand both worlds.

brainCloud provides a rich set of features designed to be woven together by developers to create great experiences. 

We don't believe you should choose your BaaS based upon whether it's "only for apps" or "only for games", any more than you would choose your programming language or database technology that way. 

We support a ton of great gaming features - like player xp, achievements and leaderboards. But these features are all essential when building brand loyalty apps as well.

Likewise our security features have been designed to support enterprise and financial applications - but they provide great protection to reduce fraud and cheating in games as well.

In the end, it's all about the features. For a full list of features, click here!

No matter what you are building, brainCloud's got your back.
