TikTok has quietly launched a handful of HTML5 mini-games on its app, according to a TechCrunch Report. The social media app’s pilot program is packed with games from mobile developers Voodoo, Nitro Games, FRVR, Aim Lab, and Lotum.
As reported to TechCrunch, TikTok has confirmed the launch of the pilot game program in a number of countries, including the United States. “We are always looking for ways to enrich our platform and regularly test new features and integrations that bring value to our community,” a TikTok spokesperson said. “Currently, we’re looking at bringing HTML5 games to TikTok through integrations with third-party game developers and studios.”
TikTok wants to test audience reception and performance of the current selection of games on the app.

These games can be found in the add link section when a user is uploading a video. There will be a menu that pops up with options like Whisk recipes, Rotten Tomatoes reviews, and mini-games. TikTok confirmed in a Reuters report earlier this year that he was looking to make a “big boost in the game”.
TikTok has partnered with Zygna – now owned by Take-Two – to make games like Disco Loco 3D. According to the sources who spoke to Reuters, TikTok will mainly borrow from ByteDance’s gaming portfolio. ByteDance experienced increasing returns of its mobile games sector, and recently acquired two major developers: Mobile Legends’ Moontoon and Girls Chronicle: Girls Heroine’s C4.
