Plarium expands to London

Olliver Heins will head up new studio

Social gaming company Plarium, the team behind the Stormfall franchise, has just opened a new UK office in London which will be headed up by Olliver Heins.

"Opening this new office is necessary to ensure we are able to bring the same level of attention, quality and community involvement that our fans expect from us as we grow more rapidly in the mobile game space."

New London boss Heins was previously the general manager at NaturalMotion and head of games at Goodgame Studio.

"I'm thrilled to join the Plarium team to create the next generation of triple-A RPG games for mobile platforms."
