We are the Leading Mobile Game Publishers in MENA

Global Games Locally Delivered to the Arabic-speaking World

We are the leading mobile game publishers in the MENA region. We partner with renowned developers from all over the world to bring the best-localized games and entertainment to the Arabic-speaking market. With over 50 released titles, 100 million downloads, and 1 million monthly active users, our experience in localization and publishing is unparalleled and will place any game at the top of the charts.



In 2013, we realised that there was a huge gap in the MENA market for Arabic content. At the time, less than 1% of online content was in Arabic, and there were no mobile games available in the local language. With a population of 400 million people and no access to relevant localised content, we saw a market opportunity. We became the first-ever Arabic mobile games publisher in the region, offering a selection of handpicked mobile games tailored specifically to the language and culture of the Arabic-speaking world.
