Realtime multiplayer gaming has been the keyword to summarize GamePoint’s operations since the company was founded in 1998. In the beginning GamePoint hosted servers for first person shooter games, enabling people to play a game against others in realtime. A few years after this GamePoint set foot in the world of social games with the release of their first webgame, Darts, released in 2001. Darts turned out to be a hit and consequently GamePoint’s offer of webgames was expanded. Traffic to GamePoint’s games grew quickly and with this growth the challenge of monetization arose.
In 2004 GamePoint launched Bingo, the company’s first game in which virtual currency was used. From this day on GamePoint’s gaming platform had its very own economy, which today is the main driver for monetization of GamePoint’s service.
Mission and vision:
GamePoint aims to entertain a worldwide audience with its real time multiplayer social games. Providing social features in our games and extensive community support GamePoint builds on long term relationships with their users.
