Regurgitatum: Bigpoint Surpasses 200 Million Gamers Worldwide!
Bigpoint (www.bigpoint.com), the global market leader in browser-based online games, today announced that it has surpassed 200 million registered users worldwide, doubling from 100 million users in less than 18 months. The rapid growth rate sets a new record for the company, which ranks among the top gaming networks in the world.
“This is another major milestone that our company has achieved in a short period of time,” explains Heiko Hubertz, founder and Co-CEO of Bigpoint.com. “It shows that members of our community recognize our commitment to delivering high-quality games and online experiences, and we want to celebrate that.”
Unlike traditional game developers – and many start-up social gaming companies – Bigpoint has built and perfected a global distribution network that includes over 1000 media partners who promote the company’s games. To account for such widespread distribution, which requires its titles to be localized into 25 languages, Bigpoint has integrated over 180 payment solutions. The company processes over one billion transactions every day.
Bigpoint’s browser-based game portfolio includes titles for every segment in the market, including hardcore, core, and casual games. Popular titles like Seafight (http://www.seafight.com/), Farmerama (http://www.farmerama.com/), and Battlestar Galactica Online (http://www.battlestar-galactica.bigpoint.com/), which alone garnered more than two million registrations in just three months, exemplify the company’s strategy of developing and distributing games for diverse groups of gamers.
Upcoming titles like The Mummy Online (http://www.themummy.bigpoint.com/), Drakensang Online (http://www.drakensang-online.com/), and RamaCity (http://www.ramacity.com/), are also expected to attract legions of new fans thanks to high-end graphics and compelling gameplay.
