GAMEVIL Passes 300M Downloads

LOS ANGELES, CA- July 16th, 2013- Leading mobile games publisher and developer, GAMEVIL, announced it passed 300 million downloads this week. Calculated accordingly, it reveals that 5 GAMEVIL games are being downloaded every second.

The news comes just 7 months after GAMEVIL announced 200M downloads last December, revealing a steep uptrend in downloads this year. GAMEVIL attributes this rapid growth to its third party publishing coupled with its internal platform, "GAMEVIL Circle".

"GAMEVIL Circle" is an internal service platform that is integrated into every GAMEVIL game at pre-production. It provides various features, including authorization, security, statistics, updates, and application operations such as banners and notices. In particular, it provides the ability to expose new titles through various forms of cross promotion. Which, in turn, increases the effect of marketing and GAMEVIL's competitiveness.

GAMEVIL boasts a proven lineup of global hit titles, including 'Monster Warlord' by Everple, 'Air Penguin' by EnterFly, 'Cartoon Wars' by Blue G&C, 'Punch Hero' by Cocosoft, and most recently, 'Dark Avenger' by Boolean Games. With quality games in its wide network and more added each month, the effectiveness of cross promotion has increased over time. By providing users with a network of high quality games, GAMEVIL has been able to maximize downloads at every new game launch as well as with its marketing campaigns. 

Equipped with more than $100M from its planned capital increase and available cash, GAMEVIL plans to further bolster its third party publishing through aggressive investments and talent acquisitions. As more and more games are published, GAMEVIL plans to expand its cross promotion network and maximize app discovery.

Some notable titles include Cartoon Wars, Baseball Superstars, ZENONIA, Punch Hero, and Fishing Superstars, which have more than 10M downloads each. Dark Avenger sits just shy of the benchmark in just 2 months after its release.

GAMEVIL is strengthening its distribution by working with Facebook, Kakao, LINE, and application stores in China. By leveraging its connections, GAMEVIL has has experienced rapid growth this year with 33% of its total downloads coming within the last 7 months.
