The plan is to enter the North American online games market in the second quarter of this year. With a New York office, gamigo will be able to contact and collaborate with business and media partners directly, the company said psp games.
Patrick Streppel, executive member of the board, commented, “This New York office is a continuation of our international expansion. Thanks to the experience we have gained over the past few years in Europe, we are very well-equipped to tackle the North American market. Top-quality products planned for global publication will be announced and presented at the GDC.”
2009 was also a great growth year for gamigo, the company noted. Over the last 12 months, gamigo more than tripled its employees, while sales grew 233%.

The company just took its first step with the release of Jade Tales, a fantasy RPG developed by Crafty, on Facebook.ÿ “With more than 6.7 million users in Germany alone, Facebook is of course also extremely important for the gaming industry. Naturally, it is only logical for gamigo, as one of the most successful gaming brands in Europe, to enter the realm of social media networks,” said Streppel. “The first step has been made successfully with Jade Tales; more games will follow in the near future.?
