For the second year in a row, Maximum Games is thrilled to be listed as one of the 100 fastest-growing private companies in the Bay Area by the San Francisco Business Times. We’ve moved up on the list from #41 last year to #10 this year, and in the space of just three years, we’ve grown by a whopping 487.7%—and we’re just getting started!
This year has been an especially busy one for us between acquiring UK-based video game publisher and distributor, Avanquest Software Publishing Ltd., back in March and releasing a number of new titles and ports, including Alekhine’s Gun, Lichdom: Battlemage, The Technomancer, and more. We’re especially excited about our new sci-fi virtual reality game, Loading Human, which just launched on October 13th! Making the San Francisco Business Times’ Top 100 list was the icing on the cake.
We’re proud of what all our hard work has accomplished, and honored to be listed in the top 10 among the ranks of other companies like Info Scout, AppLovin, and WePay. The Times article looked at growth—specifically, how flexible and responsive companies have been when it comes to their customers’ wants and needs. At Maximum Games, we pride ourselves on creating and supporting the development of fresh new games in a variety of genres that appeal to our range of buyers. Our passion for this work, and your continued support, has enabled us to make 2016 our best year yet.
“I had no idea we would be so successful, and while it was obviously a welcome surprise, it was still a surprise,” says Maximum Games CEO Christina Seelye. “The traditional advice of ‘hope for the best/plan for the worst’ is not really well suited for an entrepreneurial business. You have to plan for growth, so you can manage it properly . . .”
Our goal is to plan ahead for future growth, keep this momentum going and work into next year to create games that capture audiences of all kinds, in ever-evolving ways. As a boutique publisher, it’s important to us to help our developers reach their goals, and we want to keep encouraging women in the gaming industry through visibility and support. Our goal, championed by our CEO, is to make the gaming industry a better place.
Recognition in the Top 100 list is an honor, and we owe it to our audience for supporting us through our early years and through this massive growth. We’re excited about our upcoming releases—including Troll and I, Marc McMorris Infinite Air, and The Golf Club 2!—and we think you’ll love them too.
So far, 2016 has been an incredible year for us at Maximum Games, and it’s not over yet! We’ve grown immensely and released some of our most exciting, groundbreaking work. We’re overjoyed with the success we’ve found thanks to those who support the games we make, and we’re constantly striving to improve and be the best we can be. We can’t wait to see what the end of the year brings, and look forward to creating and publishing even more games that challenge and inspire as we move into 2017.
