HistoryEdit

Nordcurrent has been operating since 2002 when Ivolgamus, a company developing games for consoles, was established in Vilnius.[1] The company grew rapidly and Nordcurrent was set up in 2007 as a games development and publishing unit to take advantage of the opportunities available on the global market.[2] Since 2010, Nordcurrent has exclusively specialised in the development of freemium and casual games. In November 2015 Nordcurrent opened a new development studio in Warsaw, Poland.

The company worked for a while as a developer in the console business, mostly known for cooperation with Activision.[3]

Nordcurrent's 101-in-1 Games for the iOS platform has been in the top 5 games[4] in as many as 75 countries. The game has already reached 20 million downloads.[5]

In August 2014, iOS game Cooking Fever was released.[6] February 2015 it was released for Android. In the first year Cooking Fever was downloaded by more than 50 million players.[7]

In 2018 Nordcurrent acquired Odesa (Ukraine) game studio Blam! Games Studio which then was renamed to Nordcurrent Odesa.[8][9]
