Nexters Playmob stormed 2012 but are set to make 2013 even bigger

The past year has been pretty hectic, in 2012 we managed to secure funding, launch our platform and raise over $11,000 for charity. We travelled the globe managing to attend a whopping 8 conferences; we even managed to win a few awards! We were humbled to have been chosen as Launch Conference’s ‘Best Start Up’ being a Wonga Future 50 and a finalist for the Europas ‘Best Gaming or Social Gaming Startup’.

We officially launched the platform in October, after 6 months of running campaigns with a select set of game developers we were able to open our platform to the masses. We celebrated in style in the exclusive Saatchi & Saatchi bar (The Pregnant Man) with talks from PerBlue’s Forrest Woolworth and our very own Jude Ower, accompanied of course by some great music and fantastic goody bags the whole night was a massive success. This year we were humbled to run our second successful Thanksgiving campaign with PerBlue where we managed to help feed over 500 people on Thanksgiving, we even got the power rangers to help hand out some toys and meals for the kids! We also managed to work with Jagex and Aeria games, culminating in a great December for us.

Overall whilst we had a stellar 2012, 2013 seems to have already blown it out of the water, we’ve got a ton of things in the works, which for obvious reasons we can’t talk about yet but all will be revealed in the coming months.

We’ve been pretty quiet on what the plans for the platform is over the next few months however I can tell you now it involves a whole new section of the website specifically about charities. The new update will give charities a massive boost and allow the players and developers to really get to grips with charities and their causes. Recently donations to charities have been dropping at an alarming rate, however we’re sure that in 2013 we can show the world that gamers of all people care the most.
