Genre diversity

FreePlay was founded in 2020 as a hypercasual specialist and has since grown its portfolio to 20 games. Its titles include Count Masters, Fidget Toys Trading, Snake Run Race and Twerk Race 3D.

Snake Run Race ranked in the top 10 games by mobile performance in the US last year, according to The mobile title was one of three hypercasual games FreePlay approved to publish in 2022 out of more than 70 tested games.

"We apply well-proven strategies from our flagship titles to these new projects - meticulous attention to all aspects and simultaneous audience expansion, while enhancing the quality of our games. Achieving 1.5 billion downloads is an excellent reward and motivation for us as a company striving to win over players’ hearts."
