Snail Games USA is a division of Snail Games with responsibilities for game development, licensing, marketing, operations, and community management in North America and Latin America. The new U.S. office represents a continuing worldwide expansion of Snail Games and follows the recent establishment of a regional office in Moscow, Russia.
Snail Games USA will operate under the management of newly-announced CEO, Scott Miller. An online-gaming veteran, Miller was most recently COO of MojoBaby, a leading mobile gaming/networking company. With an extensive background in social networking and multi-platform game development, Miller is looking forward to extending the reach of Snail Games in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, and other high-opportunity markets.
“With the rapidly growing number of Snail Games customers in the North American and Latin American markets, Snail Games is making a major commitment to support and service our gamers in this region,” said Miller. “Our offices in Los Angeles will provide an efficient and convenient base of operations for us and our partners in the Americas.”
Miller sees the recent success of Snail Games’ MMO titles, such as Heroes of Gaia, which achieved an active user-base of more than 1,000,000 players in just a few months, as merely the beginning.
“We have a full pipeline of games set to launch in 2010-11, and Snail Games USA is going to deliver a number of best-in-class MMO titles to the North American and Latin American markets. Our browser-based MMOs, in particular, have become the industry standard for graphics excellence and strategic gameplay.”
