HitGrab, a leading mobile and social game publisher responsible for hit titles including Magic Pets and Mouse Hunt, has selected Swrve, the world’s first mobile game optimization platform, to maximize retention, engagement and conversion within their games.

Based in Toronto, Canada, HitGrab exemplifies a new breed of smart, data-focused social and mobile gaming publishers. As part of that approach, HitGrab will use Swrve within multi-million install games such as ‘Magic Pets’ and ‘Mouse Hunt’ to provide KPI data on player activity, support complex segmentation of the user base, and enable A/B testing of game elements in order to optimize player experience.

With a focus on converting installed customers to long-term retained players, HitGrab is to use Swrve to build complex models of early-life stages, identifying poorly performing aspects of each game, and use the ability to test alternative scenarios directly within the game. As a result, HitGrab hopes to realize significant improvements in overall revenues and ROI on user acquisition.

“At HitGrab we’re all about delivering excellence to our players” said Joel Auge, CEO of HitGrab. “We’re committed to anything that can improve the quality of our games, and Swrve fits the bill. Our evaluation work with Swrve has already seen major improvements in our retention rates, and we look forward to deploying those benefits across our business.”

“We’re absolutely delighted to be working with a progressive studio like HitGrab”, said Hugh Reynolds, CEO of Swrve. “As HitGrab continue to grow their business and expand into the mobile gaming market, we are confident Swrve can help drive that success.”
