The second largest social game company of the world – wooga – has recently announced that it will be bringing its popular social games to iOS, starting with the hit title, Diamond Dash. Played by over 10 million users per month, Diamond Dash is currently the 10th most popular game on Facebook. In addition, wooga is going to create original HTML5 based mobile game titles, enabling millions of players to compete and play against their friends around the world – no matter what device they are using. wooga’s move into the mobile games industry marks a major milestone for the young company and is also a little step towards an emancipation regarding Facebook.
wooga (short for “world of gaming”) produces engaging, accessible games for Facebook and now, for mobile users as well. Since Jens Begemann founded wooga back in 2009, the Berlin based startup has quickly grown to become the second largest social game developer in the world, with over 34 million monthly active users. According to wooga’s latest press release, the young company is also the fastest growing social games startup in the world, with over 300 percent recorded active user growth over the last 12 months.
“We set out this year with an ambitious goal, to become the second largest social game developer on Facebook,” said Jens Begemann, founder and CEO of wooga, “Today, I am pleased to announce that we have achieved our growth targets well ahead of schedule, thanks to the creativity and ingenuity of our team, as well as our unique approach to game creation and global distribution. As our business continues to grow, we are committed to investing in the most innovative technologies and platforms. We look forward to bringing our exciting and original game titles to a new global audience of mobile users.”
