In April 2011, i-Jet Media carried out first launches of applications on another two Asian social networks. Wild West Trains and Airport were published on Vietnam's social network Go.vn, and Farm of Happiness was made available on South Korea's Cyworld (Nate.com). In this way, the company continues its expansion into local social games markets around the world including Asia.
"The significant number of Internet and social networks users makes the Asian market very attractive to social gaming companies. By systematically connecting Asian local social networks to our own platform, we allow social game developers to grasp new big opportunities", said Alexey Kostarev, CEO and Co-founder of i-Jet Media.
It will be recalled that earlier this year i-Jet Media published 7 games on global social network Friendster which gets the most traffic flow from Asian countries. Launched were Wild West Trains, Farm Frenzy, Farm of Happiness, Sim Hospital, City Gangs, Airport, and Pirates of the Caribbean. In addition, i-Jet Media published Farm Frenzy and Wild West Trains on a Taiwanese social network, MiniK.
