FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
VOLOGDA, Russia (November 2, 2009)– Playrix® Entertainment, a top-tier casual games developer and publisher, is celebrating its 5th Anniversary by offering consumers a 50% discount on any Playrix game purchased through the company’s official website ( www.playrix.com). Within the last few months, the company has launched four new games– Gardenscapes™, Fishdom: Spooky Splash™, Fishdom: Harvest Splash™ and Playrix’s first published title Elementals: The Magic Key™– which have expanded the company’s successful lineup of high quality games.
Playrix was founded in 2004 by brothers Igor and Dmitri Bukhman who turned their hobby of making simple shareware games into a passion and eventually a career. Over the past five years, Playrix has grown into a company with an extensive network of distribution channels, an experienced in-house development team and a number of talented external studio partners. Today, the company boasts a headcount of over eighty inspired professionals dedicated to creating captivating family-friendly games.
The company is steadily stepping up production while creating new and engaging gaming experiences on a variety of platforms. Earlier this year, Playrix adopted a multi-platform strategy announcing plans to expand its titles onto the iPhone/mobile, Mac, Nintendo Wii/DS and other consoles/handhelds while exploring new opportunities. This initiative has been one of the company’s priorities since then and it is actively working in this direction.
“Our 5th Anniversary is a chance for us to stop, look back and celebrate what we have evolved into. On behalf of the whole Playrix team, we would like to thank our fans for their loyalty and support. The company’s main asset is our talented and devoted team and we remain passionate about our core values– premium quality and fun,” stated Igor Bukhman, President, Products, Playrix Entertainment.
