GSN Games Acquires Gamedonia

Gamedonia Team

Today, GSN Games is proud to announce the latest addition to our growing global organization with the acquisition of Gamedonia – a mobile games backend-as-a-service developer based in Barcelona, Spain. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

This acquisition of both Gamedonia’s platform and team will help GSN Games power rapid game development across studios. Gamedonia’s talented team of eight technologists have already begun integrating with GSN Games. The team is working closely with our GSN Games India studio to implement its leading backend technology into India’s game development pipeline. Gamedonia, which will become GSN Games Barcelona, will work closely with the technology leadership team of GSN Games India.

Welcoming the Gamedonia team, Chief Operating Officer, Steve Brunell said, “GSN Games’ acquisition of Gamedonia aligns with our strategy of leveraging talented teams and advanced technologies to create best-in-class games that delight millions of players worldwide. We are pleased to welcome the Gamedonia team, and already are on our way to integrating their expertise in order to power rapid game development across the GSN Games organization.”

David Xicota, CEO and Founder of Gamedonia commented, “We are excited to join GSN Games, one of the world’s leading developers and publishers of mobile games. The Gamedonia team brings both leading technologists and a high-performing mobile backend platform with the services and tools required to accelerate game development. While this is an exciting change for the team at Gamedonia, we want to reassure all of our existing customers that the Gamedonia platform they have come to rely on for backend and real-time game development will remain the same for the foreseeable future. To all of our customers, thank you for helping us grow and improve the Gamedonia platform over the last four years. Now that we are shifting focus to work on GSN Games projects, we will no longer accept new customer sign ups as of today.”

David Xicota will serve as studio director of GSN Games Barcelona, reporting into Andre Bremer, VP of Platform for GSN Games, which is part of the technology org led by Chief Technology Officer Debarshi Kar.

The addition of Gamedonia reflects the continuing growth of GSN Games both through acquisitions and new appointments. In February, the company announced the acquisition of Plumbee, a social casino studio based in London. Last year, GSN Games acquired Idle Gaming, the acclaimed developer of titles including Fresh Deck Poker and Slots of Fun. With today’s acquisition of Gamedonia, GSN Games now operates in eight locations worldwide across Boston, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Washington, D.C., London, Bangalore, Barcelona and Zaporozhye.
