Storm8 Inc. is a mobile social game developer founded in 2009 by former Zynga designer, Garrett J. Remes, as well as former Facebook engineers, including Perry Tam, William Siu, Chak Ming Li, and Laura Yip in Redwood Shores, California. Notable games include the Restaurant Story franchise, Dragon Story, Bubble Mania and iMobsters.
Today, the company has more than 50 million monthly active users and more than 1 billion downloads on iOS and Android. The company also published games under the TeamLava, Shark Party and FireMocha brands, until it consolidated it under Storm8 Studios in March 2015.
In June 2011, Storm8 was one of the first free-to-play mobile game publishers to announce that they earned $1 million in a single day. The following year, technology news site TechCrunch referred to Storm8 as the "quiet mobile gaming giant" for successfully building one of the biggest mobile social gaming networks without raising any venture capital funding, and remaining relatively quiet with the press.
In December 2012, the company celebrated 2 million game downloads in one day.
2014 saw the company beef up its executive ranks, with the appointment of game industry veterans, adding Disney, EA and Zynga experience to its leadership team.
The company announced a deal with Hasbro Inc. in December 2014 to launch MONOPOLY Bingo! and CLUE Bingo! on iOS and Android.
