Casual gaming site Cafe.com, formerly called Boonty, has sold its digital distribution platform to Nexway, a French-based online content distribution provider, for an undisclosed sum. Cafe.com's president and CEO Roman Nouzareth told GigaOm that the company offloaded the Boonty platform so that it could focus more on growing its site. The site launched in May 2007 and blends social networking with casual games; players can create avatars, win real-world prizes and pull content in from their profiles on sites like Facebook and YouTube.
