Snap Inc., the company behind Snapchat, has officially released its gaming platform Snap Games.

When Snachat was first released, the goal was to get people to experience more fun by being able to talk with friends faster. For Team Snap however, talking is only just the beginning. Friendship is also about doing and experiencing things together. Thus, the team has "been working hard to build an entirely new experience for friends to play together."

The result of these efforts is Snap Games, a platform that allows users to play multiplayer games in real-time while still being able to talk and text with friends.

This new platform initially offers six games:

- In Bitmoji Party, you can play as yourself in a series of quick, wacky mini-games.

- In Tiny Royale from Zynga, you and your friends shoot to the top in bite-sized Battle Royale action.

- In Snake Squad from Game Closure, you and your squad work together to be the last ones standing!

- In C.A.T.S. Drift Race from ZeptoLab, you’ll drift around the track and speed past friends for the win!

- In Zombie Rescue Squad from PikPok, your squad will rescue survivors in a zombie-infested city.

- In Alphabear Hustle from Spry Fox, you’ll collaborate to form words — fast! — to build your village.

The company also released its new slate of Snap Originals programming.

- In Two Sides from New Form, a young couple navigates a breakup — told from both characters’ points of view at the same time.
