Russia's "little Zynga" opens Pixonic US
Social gaming company brings development and analytics to San Francisco
Pixonic, the Russian gaming company that calls itself "little Zynga" has expanded its operations with a new office in San Francisco.
"We look forward to working with the best US social gaming developers to help them more successfully bring their games to market," said CEO Elena Masolova.
"We offer selected developers the opportunity to port their social games to iOS and Android totally at our expense. The porting is performed by our in-house mobile team to help developers enter the booming mobile market without distracting their social team."
The company has launched around 40 games, and also offers an analytics platform, PixAPI.
"PixAPI allows us to track thousands of in-game events in real-time, analyze game performance and improve it within a few hours," added CTO Michael Chernetsov.
"Competing solutions from Kontagent and Mixpanel carry a substantial cost for developers while PixAPI is free to use. Today, PixAPI statistics are in closed alpha with plans to launch the beta version by early November 2011."
The company was founded in 2009 and recently raised $5 million in funding from Ventech, Kite Ventures and TA Venture.
